Sprint to get 4G LTE Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, will support Wi-Fi hotspot feature

Sprint is getting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with 4G LTE support later this year

Sprint will end up getting a 4G LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. First, I just have to ask why they are bothering with the LTE. I mean, Sprint has barely any LTE coverage--I should know, I own a 4G LTE iPhone 5--and the rollout isn't exactly taking place at a blistering rate, so it seems a bit useless to pack it into a device.

That said, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is a powerful and sleek device. Under the hood it packs a 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. The screen is a, as the name implies, 10.1-inch WXGA PLS TFT display, which supports a rather low resolution of 1280x800.

 

One of the cool features of the tablet, though, is that it can act as a hotspot and share its 4G LTE connection with up to 10 devices by leveraging its wireless capabilities. Another cool feature of the tablet is its ability to operate as a universal remote. As it stands, pricing and availability are unknown and will be announced at a later time.
