Samsung Galaxy Tab 4G to hit Verizon July 28

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.
