The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)
is now available at Verizon with an LTE enabled version that runs over Big Red's broadband pipeline. The tablet is equipped with a 10.1 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 which works out to a pixel density of 149ppi (about half the pixel density of the Samsung built Google Nexus 10
). Under the hood is the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 with the Adreno 225 GPU crunching the graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board along with 8GB of native memory that can be expanded by as much as 64GB using the microSD slot. On back is a 3MP camera with a .3MP shooter up front for self-portraits and video chat. A 7000 mAh battery keeps the lights on and Android 4.0 is installed out of the box, although an update to Android 4.1 is expected.
Verizon is asking $499.99 for the LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1), which is equal to AT&T's price for the tablet, and is $50 less than Sprint's price. Order the device online from Verizon and the carrier will give you free shipping
. If you do order now, the tablet will be shipped by November 26th which means it will arrive in plenty of time to be slipped under the tree.
