CES: Samsung's 4G Galaxy Tab revealed

Samsung's Galaxy Tab gets in deep with Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network. This new 4G-compatible Galaxy Tab will feature an upgraded (5 megapixels) rear-facing camera and a faster (1.2GHz, up from 1GHz) CPU. No word yet on release date or price.

LAS VEGAS--On Wednesday, Samsung announced a Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab, but apparently it thinks we can't get enough Galaxy Tab news. It's probably right.

On Thursday the company, along with Verizon Wireless, announced the 4G LTE-enabled Galaxy Tab.

Unlike the Wi-Fi-only Tab, this one gets a significant upgrade in at least a couple of areas. Samsung will upgrade the rear-facing camera from 3 to 5 megapixels.

Also, the CPU gets a slight speed boost, from 1GHz to 1.2GHz, using the same Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor.

Besides those details, the rest of the specs (so far) remain the same:

  • Front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera and camcorder
  • Flash 10.1 support
  • 7-inch TFT display with 1,024x600-pixel WSVGA resolution
  • OS: Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • DLNA support

No word yet on any weight changes or price, and Samsung has not yet stated a release date.
