Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Samsung has been offering a WiFi-only version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android tablet for a few weeks. But if you’ve been holding out for a model with a cellular modem, it looks like Verizon has got you covered. The company is taking pre-orders for a model with a 4G LTE modem with prices starting at $529.99.

The tablet won’t actually ship from Verizon for another 4-6 weeks, and in order to get the $530 price you’re going to need to sign up for a 2-year service contract which will seriously drive up the price of your tablet. Data plans range from $20 per month for 1GB to $80 per month for 10GB.

While a tablet that you can use virtually anywhere without relying on a WiFi-hotspot certainly seems attractive, I’d rather pay $499 for a WiFi-only tablet and hunt for access points at coffee shops and libraries than spend $1010 to $2450 over the life of the contract. How about you?

  1. But, but Brad I’m bad at Maths, and I like to Facebook anywhere I want without having to get on some icky Wi-Fi network…  They’re bad you know, you can get Firesheeped or something, I don’t know what but that’s what someone told me once…

    Oh wait the intro price on this from Verizon is actually MORE than the Wi-Fi?  So they’re not even fully subsizdizing their damn RADIO?  and for that they want a 2 year contract??!?!?
