Starting today, AT&T will offer the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 online for $269.99 with a two-year contract. Alternatively, customers can skip the annual contract and pay $369.99 upfront or add $18.50 to their bill for twenty months instead. Either contract-free price matches what T-Mobile is selling the device for, but both still cost $100 more than the Wi-Fi only model.
The LTE version of the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is powered by a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and a 4450mAh battery. The 16GB of internal memory combined with a microSD card is certainly usable, and the 3MP rear-facing camera isn't all that big a deal considering that tablets typically don't serve as a person's primary way of snapping shot, but the display is pretty disappointing. The 1280 by 800 resolution is going to look pixelated to someone moving over from a 2013 Nexus 7 (or even the 2012 one, considering that the Tab 4 stretches out the same resolution an extra inch).
AT&T customers who want to see the tablet in person before buying can opt to pick up the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 in-stores July 25th. Tablets ordered online today will still ship out sooner than that, just so you know.
