AT&T is finally getting the entire 4G LTE market and devices train rolling. With the HTC Jetstream and the recently released Skyrocket and Vivid things are looking quite nice about now. Today, AT&T and Samsung have just announced the Galaxy Tab 8.9 with AT&T 4G LTE will be available starting November 20th. We recently spotted the Tab 8.9 clear the FCC with AT&T 4G LTE so we knew it was coming, and now it will be available in just a few days.
The Tab 8.9 will be rocking AT&T’s new 4G LTE (that has just been expanded) and the specs include an 8.9″ 1280 x 800 resolution display, a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a pair of cameras. We have a 3.2 megapixel camera on the back and 2 MP up front for video.
It’ll cost you $479 with a new 2-year contract but AT&T is sweetening the deal with a free phone. Not just any phone but the 4G LTE enabled Galaxy S II Skyrocket or the original AT&T Galaxy S II should you choose. That makes this a pretty stellar deal although obviously you’ll need to sign an agreement with the smartphone too, they aren’t just handing out hardware.
Additionally, AT&T has announced a huge update to the list of 4G LTE networks across the US and will have 15 markets by November 20th. More details on that will be coming shortly.
11.20.11 Today in the Las Vegas Review Journal ATT ran a full page color ad about the offer for the phone and tablet. I called an ATT store ….they said they know NOTHING about this offer. I also chatted online with an ATT rep….same response….we know NOTHING about this offer. next I called AAT corporate…Same response. AMAZING!!!
Free phone included? Man, i missed out on this deal. Regardless, this tablet works wonders. I use the Galaxy Tab for graphic design in New York, and this device makes sharing my sketches simple with AT&T’s 4G LTE network.
