Sprint clinches $550 Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for Nov 11

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be in Sprint stores starting November 11, with a $550 off-contract price tag.

The device is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. Additional specs include a back 3-megapixel camera (for video), front VGA camera, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) and full DLNA support.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 also boasts an integrated IR Blaster, enabling the device to be used as a universal smart remote – helping users easily find their favorite TV shows and control their TV, set-top box and other home theater equipment. 

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 can be activated on one of the new month-to-month tablet rate plans for Sprint 4G LTE-enabled tablets. 

Starting at $14.99 for 300MB of 3G/4G LTE data, $34.99 for 3GB of data, $49.99 for 6GB of data and $79.99 for 12GB of data – Sprint’s new plans claim to offer 20% more data for the same price as AT&T at the $14.99 and $50 tablet rate plan.

In addition, Sprint smartphone customers can add Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to their account with a specially discounted rate plan that includes 1GB of data for $15 per month or as little as $10 per month for 100MB of data on the Sprint network. Plus, for a limited time, Sprint is waiving the activation fee on all 3G/4G LTE tablets.
