Sprint has announced that it will offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 later this year. Pricing and availability details have not been publicized, but Sprint has confirmed that it will offer the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 on its 4G LTE network. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a 10-inch screen, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, a 3 megapixel camera, a VGA front-facing camera, and a 7,000 mAh battery.
