Verizon Wireless will soon start selling the Kindle Fire HDX family of tablets, as well as Samsung's Galaxy Tab4 8.0 and 10.1.

Verizon Wireless will soon add four new tablets to its portfolio. According to notorious tipster evleaks, these slates will come from two big names in the industry - Amazon and Samsung. While the Samsung Galaxy Tab4 family was revealed earlier this month and is expected to begin shipping on May 1, Amazon's slates have been around since late September, 2013.

Since Samsung mentioned that Verizon Wireless will begin to sell the 4G LTE Tab4 tablets "this summer," it looks like the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 should arrive later this month. Both Amazon Kindle versions mentioned here are expected to be fully supported by Verizon's LTE network but, unfortunately, they may not come cheap.

Pricing and availability details have not been revealed yet by Verizon Wireless. Amazon is currently selling the LTE-capable HDX 7 for $300 USD and the 4G LTE HDX 8.9 has a price of $494 USD, so Verizon will have to bundle some bonuses with these slates to make them attractive enough for potential buyers.

We will get back to this topic as soon as Verizon reveals all there is to know about it.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
