Samsung has had an exciting year so far with the release of their Samsung Galaxy S5 and new smartwatch devices. The momentum of Samsung has yet to be stopped and after rumors have surfaced on the web, the anticipation has been built and the wait is finally over. Following the big show that Samsung held at New York City’s famed Madison Square Garden, the electronics giant will begin taking pre-orders on their highly awaited Samsung Galaxy Tab S. As you already know, Samsung has taken the wraps off its rumored 8.4 inch and 10.5 inch tablets at their Tab Into Color Event.
Gregory Lee, president and CEO of Samsung Telecommunications America and Samsung Electronics North America Headquarters said at the Tab Into Color Event, “Building on the heritage of the Galaxy S smartphone line, the Galaxy Tab S line delivers on our commitment to bring meaningful innovation that our customers care most about.” He later added “We know consumers want the best screen when purchasing a tablet, and as an undisputed leader in display technology, we’ve brought our industry-leading Super AMOLED screen to the Tab S for an unrivaled viewing experience in both connected and Wi-Fi options.”
Now that Samsungs new slate is out and ready for the world, pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S are available in the US market at 12:01 ET, on June 13th. This pre-order date is well ahead of the initially announced July availability. To get your hands on these slates will set you back a couple hundred dollars. The wifi only 8.4 inch tablet starts at $399.99 while its big brother the 10.5 inch cost $499.99. To pre-order one of these tablets you have many options to chose from; the most obvious outlet is Samsung.com. If you chose to not pre-order directly from the company you can pre-order a Samsung Galaxy Tab S from Amazon, Best Buy, Fry’s, Office Depot, Office Max, PC Richard & Son, Sears, Tiger Direct and Walmart.com. Just pick one of your favorite stores and set a pre-order for either the 8.4 or 10.5 inch slate.
Now Samsung isn’t just going to release wifi only tablets. Along with the wifi versions they also have LTE capable models. These models will be carried through the major phone carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. Not all of these carriers will be selling both tablets. AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will only carry the 10.5 inch tablet while Verizon will carry both the 8.4 and 10.5 inch Tab S. Samsung has also said that the LTE models are not up for pre-order and will be available later this year.
