There are a number of attractive features included on the Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 that you won't find on the iPad. Flash support, Android, some extra centimeters on the touchscreen, to name a few. Now, we can add 4G to the list.
Samsung recently announced the launch of a 4G-enabled Galaxy Tab 10.1 can be had starting July 28 through Verizon Wireless.
The carrier will offer the Android-powered tablet in two models, each with a two-year contract. The 16-gigabyte model starts at $529.99, while the 32-gigabyte tablet comes in at $629.99. While the prices are heftier than the $499 iPad, the speedier LTE connection will undoubtedly attract more than a few users.
Other than connectivity, the 4G Galaxy Tab is no different than the Wi-Fi model. The tablet ships with Android 3.1, includes an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor and features a dual camera system.
To date, Samsung's Galaxy Tab has had the most success competing against Apple's iPad in the tablet market, but the gap is still significant. According to recent figures from Good Technologies, the iPad accounted for 95 percent of new tablet activations in the enterprise market last quarter.
