Galaxy S4 Active and Galaxy Note 8.0 4G LTE Now Available At AT&T

June 21, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Today, AT&T has a couple new Samsung devices for you to check out. There’s the Galaxy Note 8.0 which is the same tablet I reviewed not to long ago, but now with 4G LTE. But the calling capability has been taken out in typical AT&T fashion. Then there’s the Galaxy S4 Active, which Samsung officially announced yesterday. Although they made it official a few weeks earlier. The Galaxy S4 Active is a water proof and dust proof version of the Galaxy S4. All the same great specs, except there’s a 8MP camera on the back instead of the 13MP camera.

The Galaxy S4 Active is on sale for $199 with a new 2-year contract of course. And the Galaxy Note 8.0 4G LTE is on sale for $399.99 because AT&T isn’t subsidizing tablets anymore. But they do have a pretty sweet deal, which we covered earlier this week. If you buy the Galaxy S4 Active or any other smartphone, you can get the Galaxy Note 8.0 for $199.99. I still don’t understand why the Galaxy Note 8.0 has a contract though, since it’s not subsidized. The Galaxy S4 Active is available in Urban Gray and Dive Blue. Not sure why Samsung can’t just call it Gray and Blue. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is only available in White at this time. There will probably be more colors coming soon for the Galaxy Note 8.0 though.

These are two great devices from Samsung, of the many they’ve announced already this year. It looks like AT&T is getting the most of the Samsung devices this year, which is probably a good thing for AT&T customers. How many of you are going to be picking up the Galaxy S4 Active or Galaxy Note 8.0 4G LTE today or this weekend? If you do pick one of them up, let us know how you like them in the comments down below.
