When we took an in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 back in April, the combo of thin and light hardware, long battery life, and Android 4.0 made it one of our favorite options form Samsung. If you're a fan of Samsung's take on the 7-inch tablet but wanted one with built-in LTE, you won't have to wait much longer — Verizon will launch the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 on August 17th for $349.99 (with no data contract needed). That'll get you the same hardware we saw back in April, but with the ability to hook up to Verizon's ever-expanding LTE network. While the Nexus 7 shook up the small tablet space a bit, it doesn't quite meet the needs of those who want to get online using a cellular data connection, so Samsung's offering should still serve the needs of some consumers — provided you don't mind the subpar cameras, mediocre display, and lack of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Even with those flaws, it's still a nice piece of hardware, but at $349.99, you'd really have to need the LTE connection to recommend it over the Wi-Fi only version (or the aforementioned Nexus 7).
