The tablet sports a 10.1 inch Super LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and a pixel density of 149ppi. The dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 powers the tablet with the Adreno 225 GPU bundled up with 1GB of RAM. Also, there is 8GB of native storage that can be expanded via microSD cards. A 3MP camera is there on the back and also, there is a VGA shooter up the front. The tablet comes with Android 4.0 installed and it also offers LTE connectivity over Sprint’s 4G network.
The new tablet maximizes home entertainment — watch video, listen to music, and surf the Web. It includes the built-in IR Blaster, which allows owners to use the device as a universal smart remote. It also boasts an on-device encryption and VPN access as well as a 7,000mAh battery, allowing business users to stay connected.
“Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 brings Sprint 4G LTE to a new category of device and expands a portfolio already recognized as one of the industry’s best,” David Owens, vice president of product development for Sprint, said in a statement. “This new tablet combined with the Sprint 4G LTE network and our aggressively priced tablet rate plan options offer consumers and business users an exciting new way to stay connected and productive with a large workspace in an easily portable device.”
Sprint will offer four 4G LTE tablet plans with monthly recurring charges: 300MB will cost $14.99, 3GB will be $34.99, 6GB will be $49.99, and 12GB will cost $79.99. Subscribers can also opt for a one-month broadband pass at the same price if they don’t want a recurring charge.
