Verizon is the latest carrier to pick up the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, and just in time for the holidays. Priced at $499, the LTE-enabled version of the slate is set to ship by November 26th. Verizon is not offering the tablet (or any, for that matter) with subsidized contract pricing. Instead, a month-to-month data plan or Share Anything plan with tablet access is required to take advantage of the device’s cellular connection.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 features a 10.1-inch 720p HD display and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The version Verizon is selling comes with 8GB of internal storage (thankfully, microSD expandability adds to the total storage capacity). The tablet also features a 3.2MP rear camera and VGA front-facing camera. You can use either or transfer your own photos from another source to take advantage of the slate’s photo sharing features, which Verizon is touting this holiday season.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 recently launched on T-Mobile’s network and is also available from AT&T and Sprint. You can catch up on what’s good with the slate by heading over to our very own AndroidForums.
