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 a Samsung Galaxy S IV, Samsung Galaxy S IV Active, or Samsung Galaxy Note II. If you need both a tablet and a phone 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 its 1.6GHz 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.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is the latest tablet from Samsung's Note family. It runs Android 4.1.2 and packs an 8-inch display with 1,280 by 800 pixels. The Note is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos chip and 2GB of RAM, it also includes a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 4,600mAh battery.
