Good news, owners of the AT&T variants of the Galaxy Mega 2 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4: your Samsung gadgets are getting a software update! Bad news, same people: you're probably not going to notice or care about the things contained within. The Galaxy Mega 2 gets "user interface enhancements" and the addition of the AT&T Messages Backup Service, and the Tab S only gets "revised link management handling in Calendar." Read More

Half a year after the Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 hit store shelves, T-Mobile is ready to offer its customers an LTE-equipped model for use out of the range or a router. The tablet will go on sale online and in stores on December 10th.
Customers can hand over $27.08 a month for two years or walk out fully owning the gadget for $649.92. Actually using the cellular connection will cost an extra $10 a month, with T-Mobile matching your plan's existing data allotment (a 3GB smartphone plan would result in an additional 3GB of data just for the tablet).

Samsung tablets usually don't do much for me - if I'm not discouraged by the software, then the physical navigation buttons are a major turn-off. But I must admit that the Super AMOLED screens on the Tab S series turn my head every time I see them. If you've been hunting for one of your own, the 10.5" Galaxy Tab S is on sale in refurbished form over on eBay. It's going for $334.99, a full $165 off of the retail price. Read More

Samsung makes a lot of tablets. So many in fact, that it can be hard to keep track of which are the entry-level and which are the premium ones. Tab Pro? Galaxy Tab? No, it's the Tab S series that you want to lay your hands on if at all possible. Verizon Wireless has finally started selling the LTE-equipped 10.5-inch version for a cool $600 off-contract.
Sprint has announced that it will start offering an LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 on Friday, September 12th. The carrier is only willing to let go of the tablet for customers who can pay $27.09 a month for two years or drop down $649.99 in cold hard cash right on the counter. Either way, buyers aren't walking out without a service plan, but if they didn't want one, then they were better off buying the Wi-Fi version for $100 less anyway. Read More
The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is one of the best tablets available on the market right now. Samsung has released no shortage of slates, but this remains situated among the top of the line. That's why the 10-inch tablet usually still goes for half a grand. Yet if you're interested, here's the scoop. Amazon currently has the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 discounted by $50. Now there are some caveats. We're talking about the 16GB version, and the lower price only applies to the white option. Read More
Samsung has formally taken the covers off the Galaxy Tab S, and now it's time to see what this puppy is capable of. Okay, you will actually have to wait for reviews to start flowing in for that, but in the meantime, the company has released its official first look video. Here you can see a spiffy young gentleman break down all the niceties about the tablet that we've covered a few times before. Read More
The casual observer might think that Samsung has too many Android tablets. Between the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (from 2013, of course), no less than four versions of Tab and Note Pros, and the fourth generation of low-end Galaxy Tab hardware, the casual observer is right. But that's not stopping Samsung's shotgun approach to market coverage. The company has just announced the new Galaxy Tab S line, modeled after the flagship Galaxy S5 in more ways than one. Read More
