What exactly happened with Galaxy View’s US pricing? The ginormous 18.4-inch Android first went on sale in a Wi-Fi-only configuration at $600, a tag that felt a little lofty, but was anticipated by several pre-release rumors and leaks.

Then, AT&T picked up an LTE-enabled version, and charged the same 600 bucks off-contract, or $500 with two-year pacts. Needless to point out just how ridiculous it is for a tablet to not offer any discounts when giving up speedy on-the-go connectivity, which is why Samsung seems to have ordered a general price exemption action.

The Samsung Galaxy View is now available at $500 sans 4G LTE support from the device manufacturer, as well as third-party retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics, and B&H Video. The deal isn’t signaled as time-limited anywhere, but inventory may not last forever, especially if, say, Amazon lowers the bar further to $450 or so as part of its week-long Black Friday blowout.

Far from the most portable gadget in the world, this bad boy tips the scales at close to 6 pounds with a built-in handle/kickstand, aiming to offer a home entertainment alternative for your big-screen living room TV which you can easily move around the house.

The “vibrant” display and “powerful” speakers are only a couple of Samsung’s main selling points, although the former sports somewhat underwhelming 1,920 x 1,080 resolution resulting in a sub-par 120 ppi density. The 5,700 mAh battery doesn’t sound very impressive either, allegedly keeping the lights on for up to 8 hours, while Android 5.1 Lollipop runs the software show.
