Verizon adds Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 to its 4G LTE lineup


Today Verizon Wireless announced that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 would be available beginning August 17 for $349. Highlights of the device include Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 3.2MP rear camera, VGA front camera, 8GB of internal storage, microSD slot and support for 4G LTE.

Samsung normally sells the WiFi-only version of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 for $249, so Verizon customers will be paying a $100 premium for 4G LTE access. Since Verizon now allows free mobile hotspot with their Share Everything plans, we think it might be wiser to just get a WiFi-only tablet and tether it to your phone when needed.

Having said that, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is still a solid Android tablet and it’s now the cheapest 4G LTE tablet on Verizon. If you absolutely need a tablet with 4G LTE connectivity, then this is the way to go for now.

    If you absolutely need a tablet with 4G LTE connectivity, then get the WiFi version and tether the 4G LTE to your tablet or get the MiFi 4G LTE device for all the things!!

    Tethering albeit free is a pain in the ass.

    Verizon shared data plans are just $10 extra for a month to throw this on your data plan.

    But who wants a 7 inch. Hit me with a 10.1 inch.

    I like the N7 better. Im always by wifi and when im not i can easily tether with my Evo lte.

    The 3g/4g tablets are are rip off. They usually are $100 or so more then the wifi version. I could be wrong, but I doubt that the modem chip is more then $20

    Does anyone really actually buy Samsung’s tablets? From what Apple says, people return them cause they thought they were iPads.
