While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has been available for a little while now, there are some users who want or need 4G inside. For those who couldn’t get jiggy with the WiFi only model, Sprint and Samsung has announced that the Android tablet will be headed to the Now Network in the weeks ahead.
It has a 10.1 inch 1280×800 display, of course, but other features include Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz dual-core S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 3 megapixel camera with a front-facing camera, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports cards up to 64GB, Sprint 3G/4G LTE radios, and more.
TouchWiz is on board and it sits atop Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We’d be surprised if it goes its entire life without Jelly Bean so don’t be too vexed about that. Unfortunately there’s no pricing or availability information to be had just yet so we’ll have to wait for further word from Samsung or Sprint.
In the meantime I’d say saving up $500-$600 isn’t a bad idea if you’re expecting to purchase this thing whenever it does drop. Go ahead and read on for full press details.
