Hey, guys. I'm Eric Franklin. And today, I'll take a first look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, cellular edition. The Wi-Fi version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 was released in 2012, and now, it's available under three cellular carriers: Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile. If you have no exposure to the tablet, let's quickly run through a few of its features. First off, the cellular version-- in this case, the Sprint version-- is identical in design to the Wi-Fi version. I have not seen the AT&T or T-Mobile models, but from what I understand, they're identical as well. That means you get a decently built, fairly light 10-inch tablet with microSD storage expansion, IR blaster, and decent front and back cameras. It's not the fastest tablet in the world; gamers especially won't have anything to write home about. But for typical tasks, it gets the job done. However, while the Wi-Fi version now ships with Jelly Bean, these cellular versions are still eating that melted, soggy Ice Cream Sandwich. The 4G cellular version of the Tab 2 10.1 is available at AT&T and T-Mobile starting at $499, and at Sprint, starting at $549-- that is with a month to month plan. Honestly, the Tab 2 10.1 fell dated when they debuted last year. And I don't recommend buying into a 2-year contract for now. Beyond that, however, it's still a decent tablet for a less demanding user. For more information, check out my full review at CNET.com. Once again, I'm Eric Franklin, and this has been a first look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 cellular edition.
The $199.99 Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the first Android smartphone to rock Ice Cream Sandwich has finally come to Sprint. It's virtually identical to its Verizon sibling except this handset will eventually connect to Sprint's 4G LTE network and also offers support for the Google Wallet mobile payment app.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (T-Mobile) Review
The good: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is a well-designed tablet with powerful speakers, a responsive screen, and expandable storage.

The bottom line: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes up short in performance, features, and value compared with competing tablets.
