T-Mobile announced today that it will begin selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab S from December 10th. It’s going to cost $649.92, and be available on EIP with $0 down payment and 24 monthly payments of $27.08 for well-qualified buyers.

Sporting a 10.5″ AMOLED display with a resolution of 1600 x 2560 pixels, the Tab S boasts one of the sharpest and most vivid screens on the market. It’s powered by a 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, coupled with 3GB RAM. It’s also equipped with 802.11ac Wi-Fi antennas, and is LTE capable, supporting bands 1 ,2, 3, 4, 5, 7 & 12. Its internal storage isn’t particularly generous, at 16GB, but it can be expanded up to an extra 64GB. It weighs just 16.4 ounces, and has an 8MP rear camera.

You can – of course – add a tablet and match the data on your Simple Choice plan for $10 (up to 5GB per month). And you still get the free 200MB data for life on top of that. The product page is now live, so be sure to check it out in more detail.

Are you planning on picking one up?

    Nice but we need more affordable tablets that will work on t-mobile network.

    • Stone Cold

      More choices other than Samsung and the Actel they just gave away.

      • Verizonthunder

        Yes just in general if ZTE made a tablet comparable to their affordable zmax it would be successful.

  • pops87

    Just got the 32gb version from best buy for $450. WiFi only but I can just tether if I need to. I have yet to see a connected tablet/tablet data plan that makes economic sense.

  • Nate30Y

    I just bought it for $379 at Amazon (16Gb+ 64GB Samsung PRO 90 MB/s memory card for $35)..
    Coming from a Nexus 10, what I like the most is the Super Amoled screen (better than anything else out there) and speed. However, I HATE the thin bezels! I’m always touching the back and open programs soft buttons. The Nexus 10 was easier to hold. But anyway, still very happy with it.The screen just hypnotizes you.. so beautiful.

  • Stone Cold

    Not worth the price of a normal laptop

    • Verizonthunder

      Considering you can get a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 between $350 to $550 depending on store or open item.

      • Johnny Tsk

        the screen is not as good as the Tab S. As a media comsumption device, the screen is everything.

        • Verizonthunder

          I own the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 and meets me expectations besides no other Android tablet has the power near this tablet.

  • Alex Pilaia

    Got it for $299 at Staples on Black Friday. Well worth the investment. Great Screen. Good Battery Life. Bezels are nice and thin, and the gold trim makes it look premium. Great tablet for Great Price. All I need now is Lollipop and I will be set.

    • Guest2me

      tahts the 8 inches…

      • mingkee

        I’d prefer Tab Pro which is just $200 from BestBuy.

  • NYCgrunt

    I have the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. Love it. Best tablet I’ve laid my hands on, and I’ve owned and used a wide variety of ’em. If you like to illustrate/scribble/take notes by hand…it’s a winner. And, the Galaxy Tab S is nice too, if you don’t need the S-Pen. ^_^

    • mingkee

      …except the speakers. The volume is pretty weak compared with Tab Pro.

  • JJCommonSense

    I have the TMO Note 2014 edition as well. I love the Tab S but I can’t see myself purchasing a tablet that doesn’t have an S-pen. Touching a screen seems so archaic LOL. I’m somewhat confused.. why did they put a 1.9Ghz quad core in the Tab S when the Note 2014 has a 2.3Ghz quad core? So the older tablet is more powerful? They both have 3gb ram….

    • mingkee

      The difference is CPU.
      Tab Pro 8.4 uses 800 while Tab S (and Tab Pro 10.1) use Exynos 4+4 core.

      • JJCommonSense

        They dont use the Exynos chips in the LTE versions in the US

      • JJCommonSense

        Yea but I’m not talking about a Tab Pro vs. the tab S. I’m talking a out the LTE versions of the Note 10.1 2014 vs. the Tab S.. and neither one of those has the octo-core processor.

    • Stone Cold

      I wanted to do the Note 2014 but TMO is asking 600 for it which is insane.

      • JJCommonSense

        For an LTE connected Note 2014 it really isnt. That was the same price as a WiFi only version with 32gb. Just look on Amazon. Well Amazon has it for $499 holiday special but the factory unlocked ones are still going for $693..Tmos prices are very competitive.. especially when u consider that they allow you to finance them, interest free.

  • Byron

    Lame that they’re only offering the 10.5″ Tab S and not the 8.4″. T-Mobile really needs to step up their Android tablet game. Verizon and AT&T have twice as many Android tablets for sale than T-Mobile.

    • Stone Cold

      I tweeted both T-Mobile and Legere about this and zero response.

      • Byron

        I’ve been emailing him about their crappy tablet selection for months. Haven’t gotten a single response.

      • postulio

        Right, because surely Stone Cold deserves a response from a multibillion dollar corporation.

        • Stone Cold

          Not the point they keep saying as the uncarrier they are listening to the consumer. I am just a customer letting them know my frustration over the lack of tablets and the prices they charge.

  • Philip

    The Wifi version is $399 with $100 off at Staples during BF week. Just hotspot and its so much cheaper than $649.

    • Bklynman

      Even better deal, Barns&Noble’s,has a Nook Sammy,10″,tablet for I believe $310.00,it could be the same one tmo is selling,w/of lte,wifi only.
      7″,Nook,Sammy tab4,was on sale for $169. Reg.price $179.

      • postulio

        It’s not. The Nook is the regular Galaxy Tab 4, unlike this Tab S. The Tab S is laughably better (its the best tablet out right now, period). Having said that, $650 is *lot* of money for the LTE version. Wifi-only can be readily had for under $400.

  • Ordeith

    That’s way to much.. This is Android we are talking about. It should never be more expensive than a good Windows hybrid.

  • Jane Seymour

    What happened to the 32gb model they were supposed to be carrying. Nvidia shield lte 32gb tablet here I come.

  • Jay J. Blanco

    I want the tab style 7inch

    • JJCommonSense

      No you don’t lol

      • Jay J. Blanco

        I meant Tab S 7inch 4G

        • JJCommonSense

          No such thing. Tab S is only in 10.5 and 8.4 inches.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          Well 8.4
