Either the Galaxy Tab 10.1 or 8.9 was recently spotted roaming the digital halls of the FCC, with AT&T's unmistakable 4G LTE branding adorning its backside.

We have plenty of thoughts regarding this new Android 2.3 Gingerbread powered smartphone as well as plenty of photos so enjoy it all after the break.
