Verizon getting micro SIM cards for its Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE tablet

Update: And Samsung's confirmed this one for us. It indeed has a micro SIM card.

Now this is a bit interesting. According to this little tidbit that just hit our inbox, Verizon's upcoming LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will feature a micro SIM card, and not a full size SIM card as found in the HTC ThunderBolt, Samsung Droid Charge or LG Revolution. That's not a huge deal, necessarily, though it does mean you're not going to be swapping your SIM card from device to device without an adapter.

It looks like Verizon will begin to introduce the micro SIM card later this month, though it's unknown if the Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE will launch at the same time. It's currently available for preorder at $529 for the 16GB version, or $629 for the 32GB version.

Our next question is this: Will future LTE devices use micro SIM cards? Or is the Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE a special case? News at 11.

Thank, ninjroid!

  • makes you wonder if this isn't CYA by Verizon to keep you from pulling your SIM out of a tbolt and putting in the tablet, viola, unlimited tablet data
  • But you can still do that...
  • Verizon made a typo lol Quote.... a Microsim may fit in a traditional sim card "slow" (supposed to be slot lol)
  • reason is the ipad uses mini sim so like everything Apple does Samsung needs to steal oops I mean be the first to innovate.
  • +1
  • Typical Samsung , copying Apple
    First the Galaxy S , the Galaxy Taps (7 , 8.9 & 10.1) & now this
  • Wow you two are idiots. If you've never held or played with a Galaxy Tab shut up! Always bashing on Samsung. Go play with your crappy htc bricks or lame ipads somewhere else.
