Just a couple of days ago, J.K. Shin, Samsung's president of mobile communications, said an LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was in the works for later this year, but it looks like it's going to be sooner rather than later.

Verizon Wireless announced today that it will start taking preorders for the 4G Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 on June 8. The carrier will offer a 16GB version for $529.99 and a 32GB for $629.99 but did not specify when the tablets would ship or be available in stores.

The Honeycomb-based Galaxy Tab 10.1 features a 10.1-inch, 1,280x800-pixel HD touch screen, a dual-core processor, and a rear-facing 3-megapixel camera, as well as a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video calls.

Verizon said it will offer a number of accessories, including a keyboard dock and a multimedia dock, when the Galaxy Tab 10.1 launches later this summer. You can sign up for e-mail updates on Verizon's Web site.
