Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with 3G supporting AT&T bands hits FCC

We have liked what we have seen in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 so far around here. If you have liked the WiFi version of the tablet, which is available around the country today, and wished there was a 3G version to get instead your wish may be coming soon. A new version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has turned up at the FCC. There isn't a lot of detail on the device and we still have no confirmation by AT&T that the tablet will hit its network or what the thing will cost. What we do know is that the tablet has AT&T 3G frequencies inside.

The FCC data shows that the new version of the tablet will support the GSM 850 and 1900 frequencies and WCDMA bands II and V. The use of those bands would seemingly be a direct indication that the tablet is heading to AT&T. However, there is no official confirmation from AT&T on that. The model number for the new tablet is GT-P7500 and the FCC approvals are usually the last thing needed for the tablet to come to store shelves.

Other than the 3G hardware inside, the tablets have the same features as the WiFi only Galaxy Tab 10.1 we already know all about. That means Android 3.1 Honeycomb for the operating system, a 10.1-inch screen with 1280 x 800 resolutions, and a GHz dual core processor. Pricing is unknown, but it would be a safe bet that you could add $100 to the price of the WiFi only 16GB and 32GB tablets and be at the 3G price.
