AT&T says it will be among the first to offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab S slates with LTE connectivity
No sooner had Samsung announced its new tablets at Madison Square Garden in New York City, than AT&T rushed out a release to inform everyone that the carrier will be among the first to offer the LTE enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The LTE version of the 8.4 inch and 10.5 inch tablets are expected to be released shortly after the release of the Wi-Fi only model. According to Amazon, which is now accepting pre-orders of the Wi-Fi only Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4, the latter device will be shipped on June 26th. That means we shouldn't expect the LTE enabled variants of the two tablets to hit the market until mid July at the earliest.

AT&T didn't mention any pricing for the tablets, each of which are sporting a Super AMOLED screen with resolution of 2560 x 1600. Each model will also have a fingerprint scanner embedded in its respective home button, and the battery saving Ultra Power Saving Mode is offered for users of both tablets. At 6.5mm thick, the two slates are among the slimmest available.

It took ATT just about six months to get an LTE version of the NotePro 12.2 to market. I wouldn't hold my breath for the LTE model of this new tablet, at least not from ATT. They are too busy counting the money from their now-higher-priced-than-ever-before activation fee. Not to mention they are probably adding even more bloatware to the device.

Am I reading this wrong, or does it not make sense. "The Wi-Fi only version of the 8.4 inch and 10.5 inch tablets are expected to be released shortly after the release of the Wi-Fi only model." This might be a good seller for AT&T.
