T-Mobile has just announced on Twitter that it will be selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 table soon enough, but without announcing a launch date. A 4G version of the slate is highly likely, but a WiFi-only unit wouldn’t surprise me at all.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is one of the most controversial tablets out there, along with HP TouchPad. However, Samsung’s device wasn’t an on and off affair like the TouchPad, but rather a renegade device, first banned from some countries that thought it was too similar to the iPad and then returning like a prodigal son, after some lawsuits.

T-Mobile will price this model at around $500 in its cheapest version that immediately draws comparisons with the iPad 2 or the just announced Amazon Kindle Fire. We have to remind you that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is thinner and lighter than the iPad 2, hence all the drama between this device and the Apple slate, as the South Korean product is a real worthy competitor for it… but it does actually borrow from its design.
