Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G Could Release This Week

Verizon's 4G LTE version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 may be inching closer to its release. Signs point to availability soon, both online and in Verizon Stores.

Various signs are leading media outlets to believe that the release of the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is imminent. The device has been announced in early June, however it has yet to arrive in its 4G flavor on the nation's largest wireless network. It was originally slated to be available for pre-order on June 8th, however, like many of Verizon's 4G products this year, it was delayed.

Verizon has also suffered delays in advertised availability dates of the HTC Thunderbolt, Samsung Droid Charge, and Motorola Droid Bionic, the latter seemingly cancelled at one point, then rumored to be replaced by a different model, and now back on the slate for release. It is not clear exactly what is going on, but it is appears likely that nearly all 4G devices due to come to Verizon, including tablets, are experiencing some issues when they are placed on the LTE network for deployment testing.

This week, there are rumors that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 could arrive in stores as early as Thursday. Meanwhile, on the Verizon Wireless website, pre-orders show a 4 to 6 week wait time before shipping.

The latest tablet from Samsung features a 10.1 inch screen, support for Adobe Flash, front and rear-facing cameras, and runs a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 Processor.
