US Cellular to sell the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 soon

The ninjas at US Cellular seem to have confirmed that the regional carrier would soon be carrying the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. It’s a bit odd to see a device pop-up on a carrier’s website with a formal announcement from them, but that is exactly what has happened here — you can see for yourself right here, if you care.

Unfortunately we don’t have any information in regards to when we can expect it, but it looks like the usual price of $499.99 with instant rebates will hold. It’s also worth noting that this early listing doesn’t make mention of any 4G LTE radios inside of the tablet, but evidence does exist suggesting US Cellular will introduce a model with radios compatible with its high speed wireless data network.

Another unfortunate element of the spec sheet is the inclusion of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As we know, Samsung has started the Jelly Bean rollout for the WiFi version of the Note 10.1, and it brings with it some much needed performance enhancements and improvements. We’d hoped any new editions of the tablet coming out would come with the update out of the box, but unless this is just outdated information then that doesn’t look to be the case here.

Still, it wouldn’t be a bad purchase for anyone looking for a data-enabled tablet to haul around. It features a quad-core 1.4GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 10.1 inch Wacom-enabled display with S Pen support and more. We’ll be reaching out to US Cellular to find out when, exactly, we can expect this device to hit, and if 4G LTE will eventually be coming along for the ride.

    As a US Cellular customer this is cool…My Note II is 4G LTE so I would think this 10.1 will be also (why would a phone co. Sell a WiFi only unit) as for Jelly Bean my Note II and wifes S3 both came with Icecream Sandwich and US Cellular rolled out 4.1 verry quickly to us.

    The newest shipping Note 10.1′s have Jelly Bean on them, at least the ones from Amazon.

    These reports make me sad… really wanting a note 10.2 to compete with todays tech… not last years. The releasing to new places just makes me think maybe the next note tablet is further away than it should be.
