Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE now at US Cellular for $400
As expected, US Cellular on Thursday confirmed it is now selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE tablet from Samsung. It has thus become the first LTE device on the carrier's network, as it ships ahead of the Galaxy S Aviator handset due in April. The tablet will cost $500 after a $100 mail-in rebate, though introductory pricing is $400 after the same rebate.
US Cellular is a regional provider, so 4G LTE coverage is limited. The carrier plans to expand it to 54 percent of its customers by the end of the year and cities in 14 states.
The tablet will be offered on two data plans, a 200MB option priced at $15 per month as well as a $55, 5GB option. Either carries a $0.25 per MB overage charge, though it's capped at $200. Only the pricier option gives subscribers 200 reward points per month, however.
