The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, it’s a great device for those that are into graphic design. But for those of us that want the fastest tablet available, it’s not our number one choice especially with the likes of the Nexus 7 and 10 out there. Now the specs aren’t too shabby either, they are actually pretty nice, and one of the first devices to have 2GB of RAM. But the features for the S Pen and other apps Samsung has included like Multi Window is what makes this device appealing to those Graphic designers and artsy type people. Here are the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1’s specs:

  • 10.1-inch 1280×800 resolution
  • 2GB RAM
  • Quad-core Exynos 4412 1.4GHz processor
  • 7000mAh battery
  • 15/32/64GB internal storage
  • Micro SD Card slot supporting up to 64GB

But now it appears it might be coming to Verizon with 4G LTE connectivity. The documents uncovered by Japanese site Blog of Mobile show that the Galaxy Note 10.1 (Verizon edition) will have the model number SCH-i925. It also shows LTE, CDMA, W-CDMA, GSM connectivity in addition to the dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n. Verizon already has the Galaxy Note 2, which it finally put on sale a couple of weeks ago. As far as pricing goes, we’ll be figuring something close to their current tablet offerings. Which the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is currently selling at $499.99 on a month-t0-month contract. The Note 10.1 will most likely join Verizon’s tablet lineup with a few others from Samsung and a pair from Motorola as well.

For those looking for the Galaxy Note 10.1 without 3G or LTE connectivity and a monthly bill, you can find one at many retailers for the price of $499.99 for the 16GB version. Unless of course it’s on sale or you’re checking out Swappa for a Note 10.1. Currently some versions of the Note 10.1 sit on Android 4.0 while others are on Android 4.1. Hopefully before Verizon launches the Note 10.1 it’ll get bumped to Android 4.2, we all know how late Verizon is with updates, now don’t we?

So who’s looking for a LTE-enabled Galaxy Note 10.1? If this does hit Verizon soon, would you be picking it up? Let us know in the comments what you think.
