The 32 GB version of the WiFi tablet will be $599; the 16 GB version will be $499.

Verizon also announced that it will be carrying an LTE-enabled version of the tablet; customers can preorder their devices starting June 8.

The LTE version will be $529.99 for 16GB and $629.99 for 32GB, and will require a two-year customer agreement. A version of the WiFi tablet will also be available on Sprint in “mid-summer 2011,” Samsung said in its release.

The Galaxy Tab has a 1 GHz processor and weighs 1.3 pounds. It has a 2MP front-facing camera, a 3MP rear-facing camera and is .33 inches thick. It runs Android 3.1, aka Honeycomb.

In a release, Samsung bragged that the tablet will last up to nine hours on a single charge.

Samsung handed out versions of the 10.1-inch tablet at Google’s I/O conference last month. CNET said that the version of the tablet it got was elegantly designed, but bemoaned its lack of USB or HDMI ports as well as the fact that it appeared to have no room for a SIM or SD card.
