Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 headed to AT&T on June 21, priced at$399
AT&T has announced that it is bringing one of Samsung's high-end tablets, the Galaxy Note 8.0, to its customers on June 21. The wireless carrier will be selling the device for $399 with a two-year contract. Although first released in the U.S. as a Wi-Fi only tablet, AT&T's version will feature 4G LTE for using it on the go.
Buyers also in the market for a smartphone can get an even better deal, as AT&T is offering the 8-inch tablet for $199 with the purchase of aSamsung Galaxy S IV, Samsung Galaxy S IV Active,or Samsung Galaxy NoteII. If you need both a tablet and aphone anyway, this definitely makes for a really good deal, but of course it's important to point out that you will also be signing a contract for both devices.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 offers a solid 1280 x 800 display to go along with its1.6GHz quad-core processor and a beefy 4,600 mAh battery to keep it running. It also comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean installed, and like other Note devices, the tablet supports Samsung's S Pen for navigating.
AT&T is also offering customers who purchase the tablet as much as 50GB of free storage with AT&T Locker. While space in the cloud is available from a number of sources, having an additional place to keep photos and the like is never a bad thing, especially when it's free.
Interested buyers will be able to get the Note 8.0 from AT&T's website or at one of the carrier's local stores.
