T-Mobile had briefly mentioned they would be updating the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet in the "coming weeks." That update was promising to bring LTE connectivity for the tablet and well, we have to say we were a bit surprised to see that update come available so quickly. Simply put, if you are sporting a T-Mobile branded Galaxy Tab 2 10.1and happen to be living somewhere the carrier has LTE -- you want to grab this update.
T-Mobile and their "boldest moves yet" event is currently underway, and the carrier is announcing all sorts of excellent moves.

originally announced the Galaxy S4 Active in early June. Since that point we have seen the handset shown off during the Samsung Premiere event which took place a few days earlier. We managed to spend a few minutes of hands-on time with the handset during that event, however that was just the start of our experience with the Active. We received an AT&T branded Galaxy S4 a short while back and as such we have been able to spend a bit more time playing around -- and yes, that includes testing the device in water.
