Yesterday, AT&T made an announcement according to which the carrier will begin to selling the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 with 4G LTE capabilities as of June 21. Also, all the pricing details have been made available.
So, the device will be sold for $399.99, which is a very good price considering that it’s the same as the one of the Wi-Fi only model. However, in order to take advantage of the price you have to sign a brand new two-year contract with AT&T. And if you want to buy the device you don’t have any other option as the 4G LTE variant of the Galaxy Note 8.0 will be exclusively sold by AT&T.
For those of you who also want to purchase a smartphone, AT&T is offering an interesting deal, which involves the Galaxy Note 8, as well. In this case the tablet will be available at $199.99 with a contract, but you will also have to buy a Samsung smartphone, namely a Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active or Galaxy Note 2.
Of course, this is not the best deal in the world if we take into consideration that you will be required to sign one new contract, minimum. And I say minimum because you will probably have to sign two different contracts , one of the smartphone and one for the Galaxy Note 8.0. However, if you need both a tablet and a smartphone, this is a pretty good deal.
If you are interested in buying one of the mentioned smartphones you should know that the carrier sells the Galaxy S4 with 16 GB of internal storage at a price of $199.99 (on contract), while the 32 GB version costs $249.99. The Galaxy S4 Active is listed at $199.99 on contract (the 16 GB model), while the Galaxy Note 2 can be bought for $199.99 (16 GB variant), again with a two-year plan.
Apart from that, the mobile operator also provides you with 50 GB of free storage in the AT&T Locker cloud. The offer is available “for a limited time” and comes only with the purchase of the Galaxy Note 8.0.
