Default U.S. SM-P605 Finally!!!

I have been waiting for the U.S. to get the LTE version of this tablet and it looks like the wait is almost over. I still prefer a GSM version, from T-Mobile or AT&T. Carriers have been known to modify devices, so I am hoping they added USB 3.0 and changed the button layout similar to the Pro series with Kit Kat. That's wishful thinking but the reality is all we may get is a locked bootloader and Verizon logos!

It's a P-605 so it'll be just like all the other P-605's. With the N3, all the U.S. carrier versions had the same h/w (except specific radios) and feature sets. Except of course what each carrier added and took away via s/w modifications. The "V" appended to the model number means VZW's N10.1-14 will probably follow suit. I don't know if you care, but all the U.S. carriers disable MMS and the dialer on their 3/4G tablets because they don't want them used as phones.

Not too concerned about SMS and call features, LTE frequency compatibility to make use of data is my main concern about not getting the non-U.S. version. I think it was AT&T who made hardware variation to the LG G2 buttons, so maybe useful mods can be made for the P605.
