Verizon Wireless is the third major carrier that launches the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 LTE tablet in the US. AT&T released the slate about two weeks ago and currently sells it for $500/€390 outright.Moreover, Sprint is also offering the tablet for $50/€40 more starting mid November. The only other major carrier that has yet to launch the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 LTE is T-Mobile USA.
Anyway, the Big Red is now asking $500/€390 for the the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 LTE, so customers who wish to grab this tablet can check out the carrier's online store here.
Keep in mind that Verizon is selling the slate on month to month service, which is why the higher price in the firs place. It can be shared with one of Verizon's Share Anything plan with tablet access or with a month-to-month data plan.
According to Verizon, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 LTE ships by November 26, so you might want to take this into consideration before making any purchase.
The tablet is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system at launch, but Samsung already announced a Jelly Bean update will be provided in the following months.
So far, we've been unable to determine if the slate comes with a 1 GHz dual core CPU, or features a much better 1.5 GHz dual core processor, just like Sprint's version.
However, we do know the Verizon Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 packs only 8GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 64GB via microSD memory card.
Furthermore, the tablet sports dual cameras, a front-facing VGA camera, along with a 3-megapixel rear photo snapper with HD (720p) video recording.
As the name suggests, the slate comes with a 10.1-inch PLS capacitive touchscreen display that supports 800 x 1280 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
