Samsung has an array of punchier, larger, cooler slates than the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 (the Tab S, Tab Pros) in its lineup nowadays, yet since most prospective buyers want affordability ahead of anything else, the mid-range 8 incher is getting the biggest distribution push stateside.
Available in a Wi-Fi-only flavor across all the hip retail channels in the US of A, and up for grabs already on Verizon with LTE speeds added in the mix, the Tab 4 8.0 is today rolling out with AT&T’s backing too.
And by backing, we mean the KitKat-running gadget can be had on contract, outright with Ma Bell-friendly 4G connectivity, or for $0 down with no pacts, just steady monthly payments of $18.50 a pop.
24-month service agreements drive the price point up to $269.99, freeing you of the hassle of subsequent monthly installments, while if you go the no-contract route, you’ll need to cough up 370 bucks upfront.
That’s actually $10 south of Verizon’s asking price, whereas T-Mobile, which could kick off deliveries any day now, is yet to detail the costs business. Oh, before I forget, AT&T sells the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 squarely on the carrier’s website, with brick and mortar stores slated to score inventory come July 25.
And one more thing. If you’re thinking of purchasing both the 8 incher and a Samsung smartphone, AT&T promises to shave $50 off any qualifying bundle. So yeah, a Tab 4 8.0 + Galaxy S5 Active is $420. Sweet!
