Samsung divulges Galaxy Tab S pre-order information
Samsung has just announced its brand new Galaxy Tab S tablet lineup, and is now sharing details for pre-orders. Both the 8.4 and 10.5-inch tablets are expected to hit US shores along with overseas markets, and we’re just now learning of availability information.
Pre-orders for the WiFi-only models begin on June 13 at 12:01 AM ET (4:01 AM GMT) at most partner retailers, though Amazon already has its units ready for pre-sales. The devices will be carried by Samsung themselves (at Samsung.com), Amazon, Best Buy, Fry’s, Office Depot, Office Max, PC Richard & Son, Sears, Tiger Direct and Walmart, and will be available in July (everywhere except on Amazon, it seems, where the tablets will allegedly launch on July 26 and 27).
If you were waiting on LTE models, which are slated to be released at a later date, Samsung will have you know that AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon will carry the Tab S devices on their LTE networks. AT&T will get both models, Sprint will only get the 10.5-incher, T-Mobile is the same story as Sprint (hint, hint?), and Verizon will stock up on both.
The WiFi models have already seen pricing announced — the 8.4-inch Tab S will come in at $399, and the 10.5-inch variant will run you $499.
