AT&T has officially announced it will start selling the 4G LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, this time adding a June 21 launch date and pricing details.
While everyone expected the 4G LTE model to cost more than the regular version, the 8-inch tablet with LTE will cost $399.99 on a two-year contract with AT&T, the same price as the Wi-Fi only version.
"You might think that the latest 4G LTE-connected tablet will be priced out of your reach, but I'm excited to share that AT&T is launching the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 for $399.99 with a two-year agreement on June 21," reads AT&T's announcement.
AT&T is not only exclusively offering the 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 for a neat price, but it's also offering some attractive incentives for those interested in a new smartphone as well. The tablet costs $399.99 by itself on a two-year contract, but drops its price to just $199.99 for those willing to purchase a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 in a bundle with a new Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S4 Active or Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
On the other hand, this may not be the best offer seeing that customers would have to sign at least one new contract with the carrier and may ultimately end up with two contracts - one for the tablet and another for the new smartphone. It is, nonetheless, an offer worth considering.
AT&T sells the 16GB version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 for $199.99 on contract and the 32GB version for $249.99 on contract. The 16GB Samsung Galaxy S4 Active costs $199.99 on contract, while the 16GB Samsung Galaxy Note 2 costs $199.99 on contract.
The carrier aims to further sweeten the deal with a free 50GB storage in the AT&T Locker cloud, available "for a limited time" with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 LTE purchase. The company doesn't mention exactly how limited this offer is, so those interested may want to take advantage of it while it lasts. For those unfamiliar with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, AT&T even adds a video of the tablet in action.
