Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 may be coming to Verizon with LTE on board
How many tablets with 4G connectivity does Verizon currently offer? Not many, right? Well, it is quite possible for Big Red to announce a tablet packing a speedy LTE radio very soon, and chances are that this device is going to be no other than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Thanks to some leaked information coming straight from Verizon's product database, we have a reason to believe that a Samsung-made tablet with a SCH-I905 model number is on its way to landing on Big Red's shelves with support for LTE connectivity. Judging by the screenshots below, the device will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb, which makes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and even the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, very suitable matches to this description. It is also nice to point out that the said tablet will come in two colors – black or white, coinciding with the rumors that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 may get a white outfit as well.

That is about all the conclusions we can make by having these pictures only, but it is quite possible for further news to break out on May 24 when a Samsung media event will be hosted in New York. Until then, feel free to take a look at our hands-on of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and see if you can decide whether that might be your tablet of choice.

Very interesting. If true, then Verizon gets the cream of the crop, with 2 LTE offerings (don't forget the upcoming LTE upgrade for the XOOM). Depending on the screen for the Galaxy among a few other key dependencies, Apple may have to look at this pretty hard. I love my iPad2, but Samsung has a sexy interface, the SAMOLED screen is beautiful, and I like TouchWiz. That's just me, but add LTE speeds into the equation, and I may be putting my iPad2 up on eBay soon.

How can we tell that it's from Verizon? There's nothing on the pics that says "Verizon" on it.

That's what I'm saying. Maybe because of the "4G". Thought it doesn't mention 4G LTE. This could be for Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, or maybe all the carriers. But if you read the article it says the sources came from a Verizon product database

Any Samsung device with the "SCH" designation indicates it will be available through the Verizon Carrier Channel

i'd be more interested if it were the 8.9" version.

I think this tablet will beat the Xoom easily. Motorola just doesn't make sexy devices. I've read the screen resolution is supposed to be really good on this one too. Other than iPad I'd probably go with this tablet. I'm interested to see what HP comes out with too with the web OS. Not impressed by playbook at all and Xoom is a no go.

everything about this Tablet is the same as the XOOM except for aesthetic differences and i think i'd rather have a metal, more premium feeling Tablet that will apparently be Google's pet for a while than the thinner but plastic approach Samsung has made to Honeycomb like they do with everything else. i'm only talking about 10.1 inch Tablets though. i'd be kind of interested in the 8.9 inch version. that seems like a sweet spot for tablets as long as it's not all bezel stretched like the G-Slate.

This looks like the king of tablets right there! I think I'm sold!
