Verizon-bound Galaxy Tab 7.7 Passes the FCC

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 looked ready for a Verizon release after an appearance in the carrier’s inventory system, and looks even more primed for an LTE launch after a trip to the FCC. The Honeycomb-laden tablet was spotted getting its 4G radio and CDMA bands checked out by the federal entity, clearing the slimline slate for a US release. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 features a 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED display, dual-core 1.4GHz processor, and measures in at a mere 7.89mm thick. It could gain a few millimeters thanks to the addition of LTE, but the difference should be marginal at best. There is no indication of when we could actually see the Galaxy Tab 7.7 launch on Verizon.

    Does anyone know whether you can just plug in the SIM card from your LTE phone and use it an LTE tablet?  I read that you could do this a while ago, along with just swapping your SIM into another LTE phone.

      If the SIMs are the same size I don’t see why not. In Australia on Telstra there is no difference between them, just the hardware you are using.

      Edit.. Eg you can use your SIM from your LTE device in a 3G only device and it works fine.
