Today is a good day for people on Sprint’s network who are in the market for a new tablet. This morning Sprint announced that on September 12th they will launch the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, one of Samsung’s newest tablet offerings.

But enough about specs, let’s talk about some useful features the Tab S possesses. For starters, you can perform real multi-tasking using something Samsung calls Multi Window. This allows users to have two applications openĀ simultaneously. On top of that you can do something called Wi-FI Miracast which allows you to wirelessly mirror a smartphone or tablet display. But a feature that really makes the Tab S stand out from the tablet crowd is it’s fingerprint scanner built right into the home button, a quick swipe from the top to bottom of the home button will allow you to unlock your tablet.

Sprint has said that the tablet can either be activated on the Family Share Pack which is a shared-data plan for up to 10 lines. Or it can be activated on one of Sprint’s individual tablet data plans, one of which is a limited-time offer of 100MB of data for $10.

This is a great move by Sprint and it will surely get tablet fans very excited.If you’re on Sprint be sure to let us know in the comments if you will be picking up the Galaxy Tab S 10.5.
