Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 (SM-P605V) with Verizon LTE hits the FCC
A new Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (model number SM-P605V) was approved by the FCC with LTE bands 4 and 13 in tow - exactly the 4G LTE bands used by Verizon. Since the largest US mobile carrier launched the first generation Note 10.1 a while ago, we believe that it may also introduce the Note 10.1 2014 Edition at some point.
The Wi-Fi version of the Note 10.1 2014 (model number SM-P600) is currently sold by Samsung for $599.99. If Verizon will release the new LTE model, as the recent FCC filling is leading us to believe, we’re expecting it to be quite expensive.
Meanwhile, the older Galaxy Note 10.1 (from 2012) is still available at Verizon, which asks a hefty $499.99 for it on contract. Will there be any takers when (and if) the Note 10.1 2014 Edition arrives?

I spoke to a Samsung rep and they all but assured me that the Magazine UX with 4.4 Kit Kat was coming to the Note 10.1 2014 edition. I too have this tablet and was considering returning it (as I'm within my 14 day return period) and getting the newer 12.2 Note Pro, but without a solid release date and at the very least a price, I'm sticking with my Note. I really like it and I've found that I'm able to use it just fine with the WiFi and HotSpot from my phone.
