AT&T has just announced that their version LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be available for purchase in just a couple of days (November 9th) for $499. On top of that, AT&T will also be selling the ATIV Windows 8 PC if you are considering looking at a different platform other than Android or iOS. To make the deal even more mouth watering, AT&T will also be providing customers a $100 credit towards any second connected Samsung device after the first, which would make the ATIV $699 as opposed to $799. Not a huge deal discount for something like that, but definitely note worthy. Check out the quick specifications on the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 below.

- 1.5GHz dual-core processor (Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset)

- AllShare Group Cast lets the user share a presentation or photo album in real time with multiple friends on the same Wi-Fi network
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
Sprint’s version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be hitting their shelves on November 11th, two days after AT&T releases it. Although, with the state their LTE network is in, the only thing that would really be attractive as opposed to AT&T is Sprint’s plans. AT&T’s plans are a bit overpriced when it comes to comparing it with Sprint’s.
Is anyone interested in picking up a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from AT&T? You’ll be able to find the device in their online store fairly soon, but would you pick up the tablet from AT&T or would you prefer Sprint despite the lacking LTE coverage? Personally, Wi-Fi is good enough for me on a tablet. Besides, I’m not a huge fan of my battery draining insanely fast due to how much of a battery hog LTE is.
