AT&T isn't subsidizing tablets anymore, but they are offering a pretty good deal on the Galaxy Note 8.0. The AT&T version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 is hitting store shelves June 21st, later this week. It will have all the same specs as the one that I reviewed a couple weeks ago, adding in LTE connectivity for AT&T's network. The Galaxy Note 8.0 features:
- 8-inch 1280×800 display
- 1.6GHz quad-core processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 4600mAh battery
- 16GB of internal storage, microSD card slot
- Android 4.1 – Jelly Bean
So it's not the top of the line tablet, but it's not meant to be one either. It's meant to compete with the iPad Mini and the Nexus 7. The Galaxy Note 8.0 normally sports a $399.99 price tag with a 2-year contract to AT&T. Which is kinda insane since that's the normal price of the Galaxy Note 8.0. But if you're interested in picking up another Samsung smartphone with AT&T, like the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active or Galaxy Note 2, the Galaxy Note 8.0 will be yours for just $199.99. Which is a pretty good deal if you were already looking to grab a new smartphone. If not, you might as well just pay the $399 for the Galaxy Note 8.0.
The AT&T version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 does not support voice calling so you're still going to need a phone if you are one of those that does still call people. But VoIP apps should work great on the device. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is a pretty great tablet. But I don't know if its worth $400 plus a 2-year contract with AT&T.
How many of you are going to take advantage of this deal from AT&T and grab the Galaxy Note 8.0 plus a great Samsung smartphone? Let us know in the comments down below.
