Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 & microSIM cards begin to infiltrate stores
With Verizon’s variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 expected to become readily available starting tomorrow, July 28th, one of our tipsters managed to send us a couple of photos to tide over anxious future owners.

In fact, the first image provides us a good look at the retail packaging of the Honeycomb flavored tablet, which is donning a bluish look to it, with the Verizon and “4G LTE Certified” brandings all very prominent right on the front. Furthermore, we’re finally getting a close up of what Verizon’s microSIM cards look like, which as we all know are new with the carrier seeing their 4G LTE smartphones utilize standard sized SIM cards.  Obviously, the microSIM card tastefully complements the tablet’s razor like construction, but it’s still anyone’s guess whether or not they’ll be used with future 4G LTE devices.

For anyone who intends on picking up a unit tomorrow, they’ll probably be glad to know that the major software update to get the TouchWiz UX experience on the tablet isn’t far off – albeit, you’ll need to be in New York to get it.

Thanks to our anonymous tipster!

Maybe the Galaxy 10.1 has Verizon's 2nd gen LTE radio that uses micro SIM.

All that I'm hoping is that this means they'll be able to fit a micro sim LTE for the Galaxy S II

I ordered my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 not too long ago and hopefully it doesn’t take long for it to get here! I ordered the one that has Verizon’s 4G service on it. I can’t wait to start streaming movies and shows to it wherever I am. One app that lets me do this is the DISH Remote Access app. As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have been using the DISH Remote Access app to stream live TV and recorded shows from my 722k receiver that has a Sling Adapter, and I love being able to watch TV when and where I want. I paid only $99 for my Sling Adapter. However, I know that anyone who has DISH Network can now qualify to get a free Sling Adapter! Here is all the information!
