Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE Verizon review: Still thin and now, 4G

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE Verizon is long on name and 4G performance.

It looks a lot like a Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Tab 10.1, but its ability to access the Internet from virtually anywhere is what separates it. Josh Miller/CNET

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE (Verizon) has the same thin, iPad 2-like design as the Wi-Fi-only version of the tablet. So the question is, are blazingly fast 4G speeds worth being stuck in a two-year commitment?

Sure, you could forgo the contract and pay extra for the tablet, but in that case you might as well plop down cash for the Wi-Fi only Tab 10.1.

No, if you're interested in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE (Verizon), then you're obviously interested in your tablet always being connected. Well, depending on Verizon's coverage in your area, of course.

The 4G version has a few design changes and of course 4G support. Most of the design differences are small, but one in particular rubbed me the wrong way.

Check out the full review to see if it's worth the commitment.
