They released it too late. I want something newer now.

All these LTE tablet variants (T-mobile, ATT, VZW, etc) show a fundamental stupidity by Samsung. Instead of making a separate LTE tablet for each carrier, Samsung should:

(a) include an LTE radio that handles more bands and works with many carriers (like the iPad)

(or)

(b) have a pluggable LTE radio on the back or side of the tablet behind a nicely done panel or port cover, so the user can plug in whatever LTE they want.

Obviously (a) would be preferable, but even (b) would be far superior to having all these variants and the costs of making/testing/supporting them.

The other thing that would be nice with (b) is enabling any Samsung table to be LTE upgradeable. It is really bad for business to segment the market into separate wifi/LTE models.

Yeah. LTE for the whole world, not just one region.

And (c) LTE with software switch. You disable those LTE bands you don't need.
