On the March 7th event, Apple announced the new iPad and promised that the new iPad could work on 4G LTE network connectivity either on AT&T or Verizon. This would be quite amazing for the 4G network connectivity would bring totally different experience to users. But the new iPad is only applicable to 4G network connectivity in North America. If you are looking for a 4G capable tablet to use in a place other than North America, you could turn to some wonderful Android tablets with 4G network connectivity. Android has started a long journey with 4G network connectivity on tablets, not only on smartphones, for a long time ahead of Apple iPad with various excellent options for you to choose from.
With the new iPad accessible with 4G network connectivity, the 4G future we've been promised for years has arrived. And it's not just for smartphones. We've been playing around with 4G Android tablets ever since the T-Mobile G-Slate back in early 2011. Today, I would like to share some best Android tablets with 4G network connectivity which may compete with the new 4G iPad to a certain degree.
Sony Tablet P
The Sony Tablet P comes with a dual-screen, hinge-based designed 5.5 inch 1024 x 480 pixels screen display that allows the tablet to be closed up, just like a clam shell. The foldable design of this tablet makes it fit into most large pockets. The dual-screen design has made it a quite unique tablet option in the market for users to choose from.

Motorola Droid XyBoard 8.2
The Xyboard 8.2 is a powerful tablet, running on Verizon's robust 4G LTE network. Its 8.2-inch screen strikes a nice compromise between the more common 7-inch and 10.1-inch competitors, making it better for thumb-typing when held in portrait and on-the-go entertainment to watch DVD movies on Droid XyBoard. It doesn't come cheap, though, and the only affordable way to acquire one comes with a two-year contract. For detailed information, check Motorola Droid XyBoard 8.2 specs.
Motorola Droid XyBoard 10.1
To watch HD movies on Motoroal Xoom has been a great enjoyment. Now, as the successor, the Motorola Droid ZyBoard 10.1 would also be a good choice, besides its capability of 4G network connectivity. The excellent video experience also adds extra credit to this tablet. Check Motorola Droid XyBoard 10.1 specs for more.
The Huawei-designed T-Mobile Springboard harkens back to another early adopter of 4G, the HTC EVO View 4G. This 7-inch tablet offers a beautiful screen, stylish design, and doesn't skimp on the specs, either. Unfortunately, like many tablets on this list, the Springboard comes at a relatively high price, not to mention a two-year contract.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
The Motorola Xoom may have been the first Honeycomb tablet, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was the first to make us swoon. Its iPad 2-matching thickness and lightweight construction make it a great travel companion. Unfortunately, its iPad idolization carried through to its one-port design and an absence of memory expansion.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 packs the full Android Honeycomb tablet experience, along with Samsung's useful customizations, into a compact body. The 8.9 hits a sweet spot of portability, design, and pixel density.
