Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 With 4G LTE to Hit Verizon “This Month”


At today’s Samsung press event, the company announced that this month Verizon will receive the Galaxy Note 10.1 complete with 4G LTE connectivity and Jelly Bean. The Note 10.1 isn’t anything new, but for anyone who does pick this new variant up, you will be able to utilize Samsung’s full premium suite of applications, plus the benefits of 4G LTE. 

The tablet features a 1280 x 800 10.1″ display, 1.4GHz quad-core processor, Jelly Bean, S-Pen, a 5MP back-facing camera, along with a 1.9MP front-facing shooter.

As far as release dates, we only have “this month,” so if you plan on picking one up, we will keep you posted once we have an official date. If you have seen reviews of the device, you might already know it’s not the most highly praised Android tablet at all, but if you’re bought into Sammy’s app eco-system, it isn’t a bad choice.

Portable, lightweight tablet offers true multitasking, interactive entertainment and creative capabilities with LTE connectivity

LAS VEGAS, NV – January 7, 2013  From the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the United States and the No. 1 smartphone provider worldwide1, today announced the Samsung Galaxy Note™ 10.1 will be available on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network in the coming weeks.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 optimizes productivity with multiscreen viewing and advanced S Pen functionality, offers entertainment features at home and on-the-go, and allows for creativity through S Pen-specific applications.


The Galaxy Note 10.1 is the ideal tool to be more efficient. The multiscreen feature on the Galaxy Note 10.1 gives users the ability to effortlessly utilize two different applications side-by-side simultaneously for true and easy multitasking. Users can view Web pages or videos, or launch other applications while writing or sketching ideas with the S Pen on the other half of the screen without having to toggle back and forth between apps.

Polaris® Office provides robust word processing, spreadsheet and presentation capabilities on the Galaxy Note 10.1, and the S Pen support makes it a snap to mark up and annotate documents. Additionally, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is available with Kno education software available for K-12 and high education students. The e-textbook software allows Galaxy Note 10.1 users to download thousands of interactive textbooks.


The Galaxy Note 10.1 is also the perfect living room companion. The Galaxy Note 10.1 features Samsung Smart Remote, which transforms the device into a universal remote control that can control an entire home entertainment system and even recommend programs. With Smart Remote, users can easily discover new TV shows and movies, and change the channel directly from the tablet.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 carries over several features first introduced on the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, including:

  • AllShare® Play enables users to seamlessly pass content from the Galaxy Note 10.1 to other Samsung devices. AllShare Play automatically notifies the Galaxy Note 10.1 of other devices on the same network that are ready to receive video files (Samsung HDTVs, mobile tablets, laptops and other consumer electronic devices).Users can also remotely access files from devices on other networks.
  • Pop up Play – Galaxy Note 10.1 users can watch side-loaded video content while operating any application in full-screen, background view at the same time, providing a “picture in picture” experience.
  • Group Cast allows users to share and collaborate on documents, presentations or images in real-time with multiple friends or co-workers without loading the file separately.


Creativity is taken to a new level with the intuitive S Pen that boasts 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity. The S Pen is embedded directly into a slot in the Galaxy Note 10.1, which activates a taskbar with quick access to optimized S Pen apps such as S Note™, Adobe® Photoshop® Touch, Polaris Office and Kno.

The S Note application on the Galaxy Note 10.1 gives users the ability to combine notes and sketches with other digital content in ready-to-use templates. S Note also features productivity tools such as Shape Match, which converts hand-drawn shapes into perfect versions instantly, and Formula Match, which translates hand-written formulas into type and solves them with the Wolfram Alpha search engine.

Preloaded with Adobe Photoshop Touch, Galaxy Note 10.1 users can utilize popular Photoshop Touch features such as layers, selection tools, adjustments and filters to customize and edit images, remove people or objects from a photo, or blend two photos together. Photoshop Touch is integrated with Adobe Creative Cloud that gives users free access to file syncing and sharing features and 2 GB of storage space. User’s files can be synched to the Creative Cloud and opened in Photoshop Touch on the desktop or online for further refinement.


The Galaxy Note 10.1 boasts a brilliant touchscreen display, allowing customers to watch movies, view pictures and play games that come to life in high-definition (1280×800). The Galaxy Note 10.1 runs on the Android™ 4.1 operating system and is equipped with a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor that allows users to surf the internet at blazing speeds using the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.  Measuring just 8.9 millimeters thin (less than half an inch) the Galaxy Note 10.1 weighs only 597 grams (roughly 21 oz.), making this tablet one of the most portable, premium and stylish tablets available. The device also includes a 5-megapixel main camera and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera.


The Galaxy Note 10.1 is enterprise-ready and SAFE™ (Samsung for Enterprise) out of the box, meaning that enterprises across multiple industries can fully utilize these phones for business, including emerging Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs. Samsung SAFE smartphones and tablets provide stronger security to corporate employees using IT policy management through Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), top-tier, multi-vendor Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) support, as well as on device encryption (ODE). In addition, it provides the most extensive Software Development Kit (SDK) to Solution Partners, which allows them to develop differentiated solutions on Samsung devices. This security-oriented SDK support applies to horizontal and various vertical solutions.

  • Don’t forget the enormous verizon logo on the back! Such a great idea!

    /end sarcasm

  • steveliv

    we need a google experience tablet on verizon 4g so I have a choice when i eventually replace my xoom. verizon has some time since the xoom is still alive and kicking 🙂

    • I would never buy a Verizon tablet, even if it’s a Nexus. Wifi OEM tablets already update slower than a Nexus. A carrier brand OEM tablets would update slower than a Wifi OEM tablets. A Verizon brand OEM tablets update even slower than other OEM tablets!

      Tablet is not a phone. If you carry it around, you probably have a bag with you. Just get a personal hotspot and toss it into your bag and tether to a wifi tablet.

      • steveliv

        i have the 2gb for $20 plan, so for me, having a 4g tablet just works better for me, and i would rather not have to carry and pay for a hotspot or have to whip out my phone everytime i want to use my tablet.

  • If the price of the actual tablet wasn’t much higher than the WiFi version I’d consider it (although I don’t need yet another tablet). There are some benefits to having data on a tablet without having to tether to your phone. I currently have the original GTab10.1 on VZW and don’t regret it.

  • r0lct

    This is an interesting tablet, the problem is all the interest fades once Verizon jacks up the price $130 for an LTE modem which likely is pure profit as the modem is probably already in the chipset. If they want to sell LTE tablets the carriers and OEM need to work out better pricing.

    • JoshGroff

      Not to mention the fact that the on contract price is more than the price of a WiFi only model. It’s absurd. I’d rather grab the WiFi only model and use my phone as a hotspot.

  • Destroythanet

    Why is the resolution so mediocre?

    • LegalAmerican

      You have to go check it out before you just throw it under the bus. It’s actually pretty nice in person. And it’s “mediocre” because screen resolution is outdating itself at a horrendous pace right now. Even if it was 1080 right now, by March someone would come out with a new way to do 1080 that would make it look terrible.

  • Q

    How do the new sammy tablets run? I have a galaxy tab 10.1 I got over a year ago and ir runs like hot garbage. . But I also have a Note2 and it is the most fluid android ive ever used.. how does the Note 10.1 tab compare with the Note2 phone?

    • techguy

      its very much like the note 2. very fast, fluid, and reliable. 10/10 if you ask me.

    • Pdiddy187

      Throw Cm10.1 on it. That’s the only way it’s useable.

      • Won’t you lose all the s-pen goodies then? (honest question) If so, you’re probably better off with a Nexus 10 for the same or less money.

        • Pdiddy187

          I was referring to the galaxy tab 10.1, which is almost 2 years old.

  • JetBlue

    So when is the wifi version N8013 going to get JB?

  • Ashley V

    With Verizon you dont have to have a contract with tabs anymore you can do month to month or wifi only but it will have internet ability if you ever want to sign up for a package whether its ios or android base

  • Spider210

    Last I checked there isn’t 2 year contracts on tablets any more

    • michael arazan

      $10 added to your tiered data plans is the scam , i mean option they offer. If your smart just use wifi hotspot with the tablet from your 4g phone..

      • JoshGroff

        If you’re smart, you would buy the WiFi only model for a good chunk less and hotspot.

  • BAD idea on a carrier. Plus you are stuck to it for 2 years. Phone is different.

    • pappy53

      At least it’s only $10/month.

  • kevinc

    does anybody actually buy carrier tied laptops? i would never sign another 2 yr contract, just tether my existing 4g data to it.

    • Hahaha, Android

      Just Android fanboys, that’s about it. Us smart Apple users don’t get locked into a contract with our tablets.

      • That’s true. You get locked into closed ecosystems with overpriced hardware.

        • Eric Franca

          Oh snap! Oh no he didn’t!

          • LionStone

            That was sweet 🙂

      • bogy25

        You just got owned by The Observer LOL – deal with it

    • jak_341

      This person does. It is nice having its own data radio. Very convenient. Plus I am still being grandfathered in for $20 for 2GB.

    • r0lct

      There are no more tablet subsidies and contracts IIRC.

  • devi8

    Hahaha he is from Warwick RI the arm pit state, say hi y
    To paully d for me

  • I’d like to have jelly bean on my galaxy note 10.1 too! Kinda unhappy you can’t move apps to the SD card either….

    • PenisPump

      Sure you can if you are rooted. Apps2sd

  • Hahaha, Android

    If you don’t feel like waiting, you can get a good 4G tablet, the iPad with Retina Display, right this moment!

    • Because the iPad can do everything the Note 10.1 can right? lolol

      • Hahaha, Android

        And then some. lolol

        • mike

          It can suck my cock

          • Hahaha, Android

            If it could find that tiny thing behind your giant bush of pubes, you filthy monkey.

          • mike

            Your dad found it after I fucked your mom

          • Hahaha, Android

            Real original. Go finish your homework and get to bed, you’ve got school tomorrow morning.

          • pappy53

            All of you are real classy.

        • Eric Franca

          Why does he have to have a giant pube bush? Man. Trolls are the best.

          • Eric Franca

            I enjoy that my comment is all that remains…completely out of trolled context.

    • Nic Hess


      • Hahaha, Android

        What, do I have a mirror posted up somewhere? Oh, you’re calling ME a douche? Nice!

        • endurotech

          You don’t have to admit you are a douche, someone already did it for you!

    • Warwick

      lol retina

      • Hahaha, Android

        Hey, you get your Awful Tablet 10.1 and enjoy your 149 PPI, I’ll be enjoying my 264 PPI.

        • Brent Cooper

          Really? The Nexus 10 is 300 PPI. 264 is purdy darn low in comparrison

          • Hahaha, Android

            And yet, it’s still a crappy Samsung tablet running a crappy Mobile OS.

          • JoshGroff

            The crappy OS that iOS had to copy the notification bar from, amongst other things. Granted I’m not saying Android didn’t take things from iOS as well.
