Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Headed to Verizon in Black and White, Possibly 4G LTE?

Could the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (our hands-on) be on its way to Verizon in two colors (white and black), with two different storage capacities (16GB and 32GB) and as 4G LTE device?  After looking at the information we’ve just received, we are definitely inclined to think so.  A model number of  SCH-I905 is listed in a Big Red system which is most definitely a Samsung device.  It’s also being referenced as a “4GTablet” that runs on Android 3.0 (Honeycomb).  And I should point out that we have additional information suggesting that it won’t come loaded with VCAST garbage, so it could be a fairly stock experience, much like we saw from Samsung at CTIA.  

A WiFi certification has been released for it already, but does mention it as  being a smartphone.  Of course, we’re seeing it as a “4GTablet” and running Honeycomb above, so that would lead us to believe this isn’t the Verizon version of say the Galaxy S II or other small device.

No idea when this 4G LTE version could be ready, but we do know that Samsung has a big press event scheduled for May 26th (same day the DROIDX2 is released).  Most of us expect them to announce the S2 in the U.S., but they could also slip in something about this new tablet variation.

Cheers ___!

    1) Will this also have a June 8th release date? 
    2) Will the 4G hardware make the device thicker and or heavier?

    Thanks

     No SD card … no interest. Hoping the ASUS Transformer is not a bust and gets more availability soon. If it lives up to the hype it’s the deal. Otherwise – based on what Gartner & a gazillion other analysts are saying: my strategy of waiting until September to see how the dust settles on all these different tablet makers should leave some unsold inventory discounted on otherwise quality hardware… soon.

    Why is everyone going gaga over this thing?  It’s the same hardware as the Xoom just in a slightly thinner and lighter package.  Not impressed.

      Once you hold it in your hands, you’ll understand.

        The Xoom has built in VPN and encryption as well. The prices are exactly the same (32 GB Tab 10 is $600 just like the Xoom). The screen is the only advantage and I doubt the Tab 10 has as good a build quality as the xoom.

    Hopefully this also means there could be a Verizon S II on the way.

    Why is everyone assuming it’s the 10.1 model? Given Verizon is already selling the 10″ Xoom it would seem to make a lot more sense to sell the 8.9 but of course that might just be wishful thinking in my part.

    Not sure the point of getting it from VZW personally when I can buy a wifi model and tether to my phone….

      Because tethering is a PITA. Who seriously wants to pull their phone out all the time to get on the net when they are on the go? I love having 3G on my Xoom, makes life so much easier and $20 a month is not breaking the bank.

      When I have a phone that can do voice, data and tether at the same time I’ll agree with you.  Until then tether is just annoying.  Annoying enough I rather have a cheap data plan for when I am not in WiFi range than tether.

    Yes! The XOOM is going back to Costco on May 24th! Lol

    If they had give thousand to give away I would assume the product is final. hopefully there won’t be shortages or locked and I’ll be glad I held off on the xoom.

    I’m going to assume they’ll announce Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S2 for every carrier. Pretty cool it’ll have 4G LTE, but doesn’t matter to me since I’ll be picking up the WiFI version.

    Also, don’t forget Verizon announced the Galaxy Tab with 4G at CES. So try not to get your hopes up that this is the 10.1. Of course, it does say ‘Android 3.0′ so I’m not sure.

    Yeah this is pretty good news, but what about the Galaxy S II?

    Micro SD slot? :p

    Wonder it it would still be as thin if it’s 4G LTE capable.

      If it’s 4G good luck, probably as much as the Xoom.
