Verizon Postpones Pre-order of the 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1?

Today is June 8, which means the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with 4G LTE is supposed to be available for pre-order – only it’s not.  If you head on over to the landing page at Verizon’s site you’ll notice that you can only sign-up to be notified of future events related to the device and not actually throw down any cash for it.  I’ve got to admit that it’s sort of surprising to see the pre-order not go live today, especially since they just announced that it would happen 6 days ago.  There’s no telling what could have caused this potential delay, and we’ve reached out to Verizon to hopefully get the scoop.

*Note – We reported on a story earlier today about the possibly of the Galaxy S II launching in July, but Verizon has now corrected their statement, saying that they meant the Galaxy Tab.  Seems odd since the WiFi version will be available as early as June 17.  Wonder what could have gone wrong now?

Stay with us…

Cheers J!

    interesting.. the reason you thought tegra2 and LTE did in fact play well together was BECAUSE of the galaxy tab 10.1… and now apparently that is being delayed

    so there is still no such thing as a LTE tegra2 device for us?  And tegra2 is at what sounds like 2/3 through it’s life already… this is ridiculous.. OMAP or bust

    Maybe someone realized $230 premium for an LTE radio is quite a haircut….

    At&t may be synonymous with dropped calls but VZW is in line now with delays and postponed.

  • EC8CH

    So the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is delayed aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand there is no GS II coming to VZW?

    Seriously VZW what’s next, you wanna go punch my grandma in the face?

  • Thanks so much for providing individuals with a very splendid chance to read critical reviews from here. It is usually so sweet and also stuffed with amusement for me personally and my office colleagues to search your site at the least three times in a week to read the newest issues you have.

    The tablet data pricing is so absurd it’s not even close to being worth it

    I think Verizon is having big problems with LTE.  Seems like everything that’s been delayed is LTE related.

  • Just wondering… why are you using a picture of the Xoom when you are talking about the Galaxy Tab 10.1?

  • tjhrulz

    It would not be the tegra 2 playing poorly with 4G could it? No wait nvidia just said the other day that it was working great with this device and it was ready to roll, someone is lying me thinks.

  • TigerDirect signed a deal that gave them exclusivity to sell preorders for a small window of time. You can preorder through them right now. :

    • Anonymous

      I ordered mine from Tiger yesterday morning. WiFi only version.


    I think it’s all VERIZON!!! Everything good that’s coming out is getting DELAYED!!!!  B.S.

  • Mr.Joe

    Must have been delayed cause of Tegra 2 issues with LTE.

  • Ioannis Stasinopoulos

    LTE+Tegra 2 implementation drama by manufacturers continues! LOL

    I went with the WiFi only per-order from Best Buy… and will just use the Tbolt for my 4G data connection… thank you Mobile Hot Spot

  • Interstellarmind

    seriously, if it weren’t for delays, android would have overtaken apple by now. do these bozos at verizon realize how much potential $$ they’re missing out on by delaying?

    we’ve got developers in the android community, working for essentially beer money, coding circles around VZW, MOTO, HTC, etc. how is this possible? are these big companies THAT stupid?

    P.S. i’m not trying to disparage the android dev community – you guys are awesome and are the ones keeping android alive and thriving. it certainly is not the carriers or manufacturers, even.

    • Mr.Joe

      OMG over dramatic much?

      Who cares when vzw puts the preorder up.  I highly doubt that just because preorders aren’t up today people are saying:

      “OH going to the iPad2”.

      If you want a device you’ll wait and get it.  If not then you didn’t want it.

      • Peter Wilkinson

        i think you missed the point he was making. it’s ok. your intelligence probably wasn’t high enough to understand so i’ll try and explain it to you. verizon postponed the pre order of the 4g galaxy tab, there was a big delay with version 2.2 on all devices, verizon used skype with video as one of the selling points for the htc thunderbolt but then took it off not too long before releasing the thunderbolt with no built in video chat app on a front camera phone. thats only a few of the delays but i know i missed tons more. but i’m sure you get the point. and no im not an apple fan. i hate apple. android is better but its just verizon that sucks when it comes to releasing updates or devices.

      We have no real insight into the release process (read: documented publicly).  For all we know it is bug related which means QA at the OEMs are just as likely to blame as the carrier.
      As for the dev community for every 1 talented dev that created a rom from scratch there are 50 that take a OEMs build and modify it.  So keep in mind the amount of roms out there would be a lot more sparse without all these builds, or certainly there wouldn’t be as much to differentiate them.

      Verizon rules. Their company commitment hard work and knowledge of their own products is second to none. Lollollollol

    And…there really is a problem with Tegra 2 and LTE and we can disregard the post yesterday where NVIDIA used the arrival of the Galaxy Tab as proof that T2 and LTE are playing nice together…

    Probably not, but it is sadly ironic…

  • Is VZW making sure there is no class action lawsuit from the XOOM being the “first LTE tablet” on their network? Do you think they would hold it up for Moto to get their crap together?

    • tjmonkey15

      It would make sense for the delay to be related to the lack of 4G for the Xoom.  Verizon and Motorola seem to have a good relationship, and I don’t think Verizon wants to ruin that.

    • I hadn’t thought of that, but it certainly makes sense.  That would probably be more costly than a delay to the Tab that the typical consumer will never even know about.

  • Anonymous

    Thats okay … I’m interested in checking out the 8.9 wifi version

  • MFG

    Apparently that GSII/July rumor was meant as the Tab 10.1 LTE is coming out in July…which sucks. That could mean the pre-order was pushed back, as well.

    • Anonymous

      This could very well have been what they meant…unfortunate.

    • Anonymous

      Or just a typical verizon cover up like they do with all of their phones and deny its even existance. I think this is just verizon covering an employee slip up. The Galaxy Tab is being released June 17 so now its not going to until july? Just seems a little strange all of the sudden it gets pushed back when some people already can get it or are preordering.

    Delays from Android manufacturers are becoming a disappointing trend. Not sure who is to blame, but the common denominator seems to be Verizon, which is surprisingly becoming a terrible wireless company very quickly on many fronts.

    • At least they arent delaying the same phone but just in a different color for over a 6 months, then praising themselves for it. 

      • James_Ever

        Give them time and I’m sure they’ll do the same thing. Whatever is going on whether its manufacturers or carriers, this has to mean they’re hemorrhaging money and don’t seem like they know what the hell they’re doing from the asinine slip-ups with releasing information prematurely or holding information back because they have to keep revising they’re devices. And if this is truly related to the NVIDIA Tegra 2 software then ditch it and go with the OMAP from TI that seems to work with relatively less problems.

    • Peter Wilkinson

      I bet they won’t delay making us pay for the 4g hotspot feature. nope. the most they’ll do is give it to us a little early.

      • Anonymous

        Yea…VZW should continue to give us free hotspot until all screwups are fixed!

  • RaginCajun92

    VZW = King of the Delays!

    • Mr.Joe

      Who says the manufacturers aren’t delaying it?
