Verizon today committed to being the first American carrier to state a release date for the Samsung Galaxy Tab. It’s version of the 16GB Android 2.2 slate will reach stores on November 11 and will cost $600 without a contract. The company will charge the same $20 per month for 1GB of data, ranging up to $50 for 5GB for the Tab as it plans to do for the iPad.

The Verizon edition has EDVO for networking and comes with some of the carrier’s regular apps, including V Cast Music, VZ Navigator and a Verizon-backed edition of Blockbuster On Demand for movie rentals. Owners will have the choice of two stores through either the official Android Market or V Cast Apps, which makes its debut on a shipping device with the Galaxy Tab. Amazon’s Kindle app and Slacker Radio will come preloaded.

The Tab has a seven-inch, 1024×600 display, a rear three-megapixel camera and a front VGA camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi and GPS. It runs on Samsung’s 1GHz Hummingbird processor and comes with only a lightly customized version of Android with Flash 10.1 installed.
