We've already told you that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be available for pre-order (or in your hands, if you happen to live in NYC) on June 8th , but we've just gotten word that pre-orders will begin on the same day for a 4G LTE version on Verizon (no word on an official release date, though - it just says "this summer"). The pricing is not so exciting, however: $529 for the 16GB version, and $629 for the 32GB version - with a two-year agreement, of course. You can find out more info, as well as sign up to be reminded when Big Red starts taking orders over at VZW's Galaxy Tab landing page.

If you still haven't decided whether or not the Tab 10.1 is for you - have a look at our in-depth review, it may just help you make up your mind.

    I'll be a little ticked if this comes out before my Xoom gets the LTE chip.

      That's what I was thinking. Release date is actually unknown, so who knows when that might happen.

    If they are taking pre-orders for a LTE tab then surely they must have some GSM versions soon to be released upon the world.

    Why is Samsung getting greedy for $30.99? It would sell so much better for $499, same as the Wifi version. Does the extra cost make really a big difference for Samsung's annual profit?
