Samsung Galaxy Tab 4G to hit Verizon July 28

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 will hit Verizon’s LTE network this Thursday, offering up an excellent choice for those who crave speedy data on their tablets or who are — for whatever reason — eschewing the iPad.

The Samsung tablet, a sleek Android alternative to Apple’s market-leading iPad runs Android Honeycomb with some Samsung WizTouch features. The Galaxy Tab’s WiFi version was speedy with its dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. Taking a leaf out of Apple’s design portfolio, however, means the super-slim tablet lacks the ports that other Android tablets have to offer. With just a proprietary connector and a headphone jack, that Tab needs extra dongles to play with other devices.

According to Verizon, the new version of the tablet will get download speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps on its fastest network.

The tablet will cost $529.99 for the 16GB model and $629.99 for the 32GB model and will require a minimum 2GB, $30 per month data plan. Verizon will also sell a 16GB WiFi Tab in Metallic Gray for $499.99.

If that wasn’t enough LTE excitement for you this morning, the company also announced that it will begin selling the 4G LTE-powered HP Pavilion dm1-3010nr Entertainment PC, a 1.2-inch thick notebook.

The computer will be available on Verizon’s Web site on July 28 for $599.99 and requires, at minimum, a $50-per-month, 5GB data plan.
