MobileCON kicks off today with an announcement from Sprint and Samsung for the LTE-enabled Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. No details on pricing or dates, but they did give us the spec sheet. There are another three devices Sprint also announced, which we'll get to in a second. 

  • Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor (Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset)
  • 10.1-inch WXGA PLS TFT 1280 x 800 display
  • 7,000mAh Lithium-Ion battery
  • 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM and microSD card slot supporting up to 64GB memory card
  • Personal and business email, as well as IM through Google Talk
  • Google Mobile wireless services such as Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps for Android, Google Calendar, Voice Actions and YouTube
  • 3G/4G LTE mobile hotspot capability supporting up to 10 Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously
  • Face Unlock uses state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to allow the user switch on the phone and look at it to get past the lock screen – no passwords to remember, nothing to type or swipe
  • AllShare Group Cast lets the user share a presentation or photo album in real time with multiple friends on the same Wi-Fi network
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n

We reviewed the AT&T version of this bad boy awhile back, so feel free to take a read-through. Anyone biting?

Whats the point of having an LTE tablet if their LTE is so limited. Others have an amazing coverage all through the US and Sprint has small spots. Come on Sprint I love you but please move faster!

Depending on pricing and available plans. 'maybe". But then again, LTE is sparse in my neck of the woods....so probably NO.

Would need to be priced lower than other LTE capable tablets with that fruit logo and pre-paid pay as you go data plans to make many take the leap.

dislike 1 gig of ram and dislike that this tablet has been out for months already... :( but still if it's like 350 or so sure! but if they charge 5 or 6 hundred dollars forget it!

keep in mind this has an upgraded CPU over the wifi and GSM versinos - Snadragon S4 vs OMAP 4. Huge difference.

If anyone has watched the 60 minutes piece on Huawei, you'll understand why Sprint's 4G LTE has not taken off as we originally thought it would.
