Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 with AT&T Bands Passes through the FCC

Lately, US carriers have been adding quite a few tablets to their lineups. Which isn’t bad, as we love to use tablets, and having LTE data with them is even better. AT&T just recently added a few of Samsung’s tablets to their portfolio, and it looks like another one is joining in soon as well. Now it appears that the 8-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 4 is also headed to AT&T stores soon. As the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8-inch just passed through the FCC and does have bands to support AT&T’s network.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8-inch has a 8-inch display, 1280×800 resolution display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, along with a 3MP camera on the back. It is running Android 4.4 KitKat and the latest version of Touchwiz, but it does not have the magazine UX which was debuted on the Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO tablets back at CES, those seem to have the “exclusive” on the feature, which makes sense since it is a tablet aimed at “pro” users, or business users.

I have the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10-inch tablet right now to review, and I’m actually quite impressed with it. Now it’s not going to blow you away with it’s specs, but everything it does, it does well. The Galaxy Tab 4 line is by no means a high-end tablet line – that’s what the Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO lines are for – but it is a pretty decent tablet for around $200. And I’m sure AT&T’s will be a bit more expensive due to the LTE radio, as most LTE tablets are a bit more expensive than their WiFi brothers.

It’s interesting to see Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile adding tons of tablets to their lineups. Wonder when Sprint will start adding more and more? Maybe AT&T will start having some competing plans with T-Mobile and Verizon soon?
