U.S. Cellular subscribers can now add Samsung's 4G Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet to their shopping lists.

As of today, the 4G Note 10.1 is available at U.S. Cellular retail outlets and the carrier's online store. The tablet sells for $499.99 when paired with a plan offering 2GB or more of data per month.

The Note is the latest Samsung 4G device to join U.S. Cellular's lineup. The carrier already sells the Galaxy S3, the Galaxy Note 2, and the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Outfitted with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Note 10.1 is powered by a quad-core, 1.4GHz Exynos processor. It offers 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of memory, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera on the rear, and a 1.9MP camera on the front.

The Note 10.1 includes an S Pen that allows users to take notes and edit documents.

Adobe Photoshop Touch and 2GB of free file storage in Adobe's Creative Cloud are also part of the package. People can use the S Pen to create artwork or edit photos in Photoshop Touch.

A multi-window feature displays different apps all on a single screen. The tablet also comes with Samsung's Smart Remote app which lets people control their TVs through the tablet.

U.S. Cellular said that its 4G LTE network covers around 61 percent of its customers in various cities across Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. The carrier expects that number to grow to 87 percent by the end of this year.
