Galaxy Tab 10.1 to get some Sprint love on July 24, no 3G/4G though

Tethering through your smartphone works for you? Then save some money and skip the 3G/4G Galaxy Tab 10.1 version and get the WiFi only model. Starting on July 24th, you can pick the cheap WiFi + 16GB basic Galaxy Tab 10.1 model for around $500, no plan required (of course, Sprint will love to sign up with them and buy the MiFi router in the process), but if you already have a smartphone with a healthy data plan, don’t bother. If money is no object, wait a tad longer and get the 4G LTE version from Verizon later in the summer.

If you are still undecided as of which tablet to buy, check out our top 10 tablets article. iPad 2 is still the tablet to buy, not necessarily because of the hardware but because it still has the most tablet optimized apps by far. If you hate all things Apple though (I have a friend that does), Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the next best thing. Better hardware, thinner, lighter than iPad 2, the new tablet from Samsung is the best Android tablet to date, and that is no small thing considering how diverse the Android market has become.
