Not long after the release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, AT&T kicks off the sales of an 8-inch member of the Galaxy Tab 4 lineup. Starting on July 15th, users will have various ways to buy the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 4G LTE from AT&T online: for $369.99 outright, for $269.99 with a two-year contract or for $18.50 per month with $0 down and no annual contract. On July 25th the tablet also will be available from retail stores. In their commercials, AT&T and Samsung are proudly saying that the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is the tablet for the whole family and it will suit each kind of user.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 4G LTE for AT&T
When it comes to specs, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 doesn’t offer anything extraordinary for its price range. It sports an 8-inch 1280 x 800 HD display and a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor. Internal storage of the device is set at 16GB, and there is also microSD card slot. Moreover, the slate features 1.5GB of RAM, a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. On the connectivity front, the device is equipped with Wi-Fi, 4G LTE and Bluetooth 4.0 and it runs on a 4,450 mAh battery. Furthermore, Samsung’s new tablet ships with Android 4.4 KitKat.
Hardware aside, the 8-inch Galaxy Tab 4 comes with a number of cool features. For example, you can turn the tablet into a universal TV remote and have loads of fun flipping though channels thanks to a feature called WatchON. Multi Window view will make multitasking much easier by allowing you to divide the screen in half and use two apps simultaneously. Easy Upload will allow you to organize photos, music, ebooks and documents and share them via Facebook or Twitter.
AT&T also offers a few perks to go with the tablet. For starters, you get 50GB of free cloud storage for Mobile Share Value Customers. Moreover, if you grab a Galaxy phone along with the tablet, you will get $50 off the latter.
To sum up, the latest addition to AT&T’s portfolio seems quite tempting but still appears somewhat short of absolute must-have. If for some reason you prefer a different carrier, you should know that Verizon and T-Mobile are going to sell LTE-capable version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 later this month.
