Features

Aside from the addition of 4G, the Galaxy Tab 4G also rocks a 1.2GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird application processor. The rest of the features are largely similar to those in the previous version of the Galaxy Tab, including Android 2.2 and a 7-inch touch screen.

Rubberized back

The Galaxy Tab 4G features a rubberized back, which we like over the plastic, slick back on the regular Galaxy Tab. Also on back of the device is a 5-megapixel camera and flash.

Front-facing camera

The Samsung Galaxy features a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video chats. As you can see from the first icon, it can also be used a mobile hot spot.

Along the spine you'll find a power button, a volume rocker, a microSD expansion slot, and a SIM card slot. When asked about the SIM card slot, Samsung said that Verizon requires one on all LTE devices.

Though some might criticize the 7-inch screen, we like the size and design of the Galaxy Tab 4G.
