This year has already been a busy one for Samsung’s tablet lineup, and a couple weeks back we saw the company debut the latest additions to that family, bringing OLED displays back into the fold with the launch of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Tab S 10.5. We saw pre-orders open shortly after Samsung’s premiere event, and today we finally reach retail availability, as both Tab S models go up for sale in the US.
Well, that’s true so long as you’re interested in a WiFi-only model, at least, with both the 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch tablets yours to purchase; LTE models are still a little way’s out.
While both online and brick-and-mortar retailers have the Tab S models available for sale, the fastest way to get your hands on one isn’t always intuitive; for instance, we noticed that none of our local Best Buy stores we checked out were advertising availability for in-store pickup sooner than another 3-5 days – but your luck may be better. Amazon says that it can get a Tab S out to you in just two days if you get your order in soon.
The 16GB Tab S 10.1 is available in white and bronze for just about $500, while the 16GB Tab S 8.4 goes for closer to $400, with the same color options. Both versions feature high-res quad HD OLED displays. Anyone planning to pick one up this weekend?
