All men are frauds. The only difference between them is that some admit it. I myself deny it. - H.L. Mencken
UK MOBILE OPERATOR Three has revealed plans to sell Samsung's 8.4in and 10.5in Galaxy Tab S tablets.
Three has added the Galaxy Tab S to its coming soon page, confirming that it will offer the iPad Mini and iPad Air rivals when they arrive in the UK. The network has yet to cough on pricing and availability details, but we have put the question to it.
However, Three likely will sell the tablet on both a SIM-free and monthly contract basis, and likely will offer tariffs complete with unlimited monthly data and free 4G LTE.
While the mobile operator is yet to announce pricing and release date details, PC World promptly started taking orders for the Galaxy Tab S, selling the 8.4in and 10.5in models for £319.99 and £399.99, respectively. According to the retailer, the tablets will start shipping on 4 July.
Since, Carphone Warehouse has also started offering the tablets through its website, complete with pricing identical to that of PC World. However, the retailer is also offering the tablets with LTE support, which it has priced at £399 and £479, respectively.
According to Carphone Warehouse, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S will start shipping on 7 July.
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S tablets have a 2560x1600 resolution display, an octa-core Exynos 5 processor and a skinny 6.6mm profile - thinner than the iPad Air's slim 7.5mm profile.
There's also Google's Android 4.4 Kitkat mobile operating system onboard, 3GB of RAM, either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage expandable up to 128GB via microSD card, dual 8MP and 2MP cameras and Bluetooth 4.0. µ
