Today, Verizon Wireless has announced that it will offer Samsung’s 4G LTE Galaxy Tab 10.1 starting on Thursday, July 28th. There will be 16GB and 32GB models available for $529 and $629, respectively. Just like the WiFi only version, this 4G LTE Galaxy Tab 10.1 will run Honeycomb 3.1 and is equipped with a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800-pixel resolution display, a 3-megapixel camera capable of recording HD video, and 1080p HD video playback on a HD TV or other 1080p HD device.
Now with Verizon’s 4G LTE version hitting its stores Thursday, tiered data plans will be in full effect. Customers will have to choose from three different monthly data plans from Verizon Wireless, including a $30 2GB option, a $50 5GB option, and an $80 10GB option. In a recent review of the Tab 10.1, we hailed it as “a beautiful piece of hardware” which is “thinner than a Parisian fashion model.” No offense.
Another nice little nugget Verizon is adding with each purchase is Media Hub credit. For a limited time, Verizon Wireless customers will get a free $25 Media Hub credit from Samsung with their Galaxy Tab 10.1 purchase, which is good towards TV program purchases. Media Hub is the movie and television purchasing service that Samsung launch last year in conjunction with the original Galaxy Tab.

These tablets will come out in two different flavors, white and black with both the Verizon and 4G LTE logos. Checkout the pics in the gallery.
