Whispers on the ground had it that the Samsung Galaxy Tab over at T-Mobile would have a micro SIM stashed away inside, but that remained a rumor even until now. It seems that this rumor has found a new lease of life with Verizon’s LTE-capable Galaxy Tab 10.1 – at least, that is what the good people over at Android Central are saying
Android Central claims that they have managed to snag some Verizon Wireless training documents which point towards the fact that the Android 3.x Honeycomb-powered tablet will note rely on a standard 4G SIM which is used in the carrier’s current stable of 4G smartphones such as the LG Revolution and HTC Thunderbolt, but rather, will sport a micro SIM card instead.
If this were to be turned into reality, it does raise some interesting questions – could Verizon be taking this route to discourage users from changing SIMs between a phone and tablet device to save money as there is no need to have two data hungry accounts simultaneously, or could this be Samsung’s oversight as their Galaxy Tab has space constraint issues in terms of design? We have received word from Samsung that it indeed has a micro SIM card slot though.
