4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Tab coming to Verizon

Verizon’s second 4G LTE tablet isn’t a completely new one, like the Motorola Xoom is. It’s an upgraded Samsung Galaxy Tab, which will be launched “by mid 2011” with support for Verizon’s new and speedy network.

Other than featuring support for 4G, the new Galaxy Tab is enhanced with a 1.2GHz processor (instead of 1GHz – that’s the CPU of the original Tab) and a 5MP camera (instead of a 3MP one).

Weird enough (not exactly in a good way), it seems that the 4G Galaxy Tab will still run Android 2.2 – not Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

Verizon didn’t say how much the 4G Tab will cost. However, since the old tablet currently costs $499, the new one will probably be about $600.
