AT&T's LTE Galaxy Note 8.0 launching on June 21 for $399.99, smartphone bundle also plannedAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
After announcing plans to carry a 4G LTE-enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 last week, AT&T today spilled the all-important pricing and launch information of its upcoming slate. AT&T has revealed that the Galaxy Note 8.0 will be available on June 21, complete a price tag of $399.99 with a two-year commitment. Customers that are interested in a Galaxy double whammy will be able to pick up the Galaxy Note 8.0 for just $199.99 on contract when they also buy a Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S 4 Active or Galaxy Note II.
AT&T's flavor of the Galaxy Note 8.0 is largely similar to the Wi-Fi-only model that was introduced earlier this year. The AT&T version packs an 8-inch display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 5-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras, 16GB built-in storage, microSD card slot and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Of course, there's also 4G LTE connectivity included with this model, allowing owners to get online without a Wi-Fi network. AT&T is also offering 50GB of free storage in its AT&T Locker service for a limited time.
While many folks are content with using their tablets on Wi-Fi only, some consumers like to be able to get online with their slate while out and about. That's where connected tablets like this AT&T Galaxy Note 8.0 come in. AT&T has offered Galaxy tablets in the past, but those were straight up tablet models and note S Pen-equipped Note devices, so it's good to see an LTE-enabled Note tablet joining AT&T's roster. Now that AT&T has come forward with the availability details for its Galaxy Note 8.0, will any of you be buying one?
