Update 11/1/12: The tablet will come out on November 11th for $549.99.

Another day, ten new Samsung device announcements. We've already taken a look at the Galaxy Music this morning, and now the Korean manufacturer has announced the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is coming to Sprint's growing LTE network.

This is Sprint's first LTE-powered tablet, and packs a bit of a spec boost over the Wi-Fi model:

  • 10.1" 1280x800 display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon MSM8960
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 3MP rear shooter, VGA front camera
  • 10.1 inches x 6.9 inches x 0.38 inches, 1.29 lbs.
  • Android 4.0

Like most other recent device announcements, there's no word on pricing or availability, only that it "will be announced at a later date." Cool.
