Sprint getting Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with LTE support, on November 11th
Sprint recently started offering month to month LTE pricing for its non-contract customers toting a tablet. One new tablet on the way is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, which will be available for the mobile operator's customers on November 11th. The tablet offers a 10.1 inch Super LCD display with resolution of 1280 x 800 which works out to a pixel density of 149ppi. The dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 is driving the tablet with the Adreno 225 GPU handling graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board and there is 8GB of native storage that can be expanded with the use of microSD cards. A 3MP camera is on back with a VGA shooter up front. With Android 4.0 installed, the tablet offers LTE connectivity over Sprint's nascent 4G network. The tablet will be available for $549.99.

Sprint says its new non-contract data pricing for tablets offers 20% more data for the same price than the competition does. $14.99 buys you 300MB of data compared to 250MB at AT&T. $34.99 a month buys you 3GB at Sprint (at $30, 3GB is slightly cheaper at AT&T while it costs $40 at Verizon) Sprint charges $49.99 for 6GB of data as opposed to 5GB that AT&T offers at the same price which is the 20% difference touted by Sprint. Verizon just about matches Sprint for 6GB. Sprint and Verizon are 1 cent apart on 12GB of tablet-bound bata with the former's price at $79.99 a month.

Current Sprint customers with a smartphone contract can add a tablet for $10 per month for 100MB, or $15 a month for 1GB of data. For a limited time, all activation fees are being waived by Sprint for 3G/4G tablets.
