Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 LTE headed to T-Mobile?
The Wi-Fi-only version of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 was released in the US back in February, but what about its LTE variant? Well, this might be soon available via T-Mobile.

According to TKTechNews, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 should be launched by T-Mobile sometime “later this summer.” There’s no word on how much the carrier will ask for it, but the tablet won’t be cheap, since it’s a high-end one. TKTechNews doesn’t have images of any T-Mobile-branded Tab Pro 8.4, but there’s a video that reportedly shows “a developer unit” that’s being used by T-Mobile to “create bloatware” and make sure it works properly with its network bands.

The addition of LTE will allow T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 to make phone calls. That aside, the tablet shouldn’t be too different from the Wi-Fi model, featuring an 8.4-inch display with 1,600 x 2,560 pixels, 8MP rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable internal memory. Android 4.4 KitKat will obviously be on board.   

Recently, T-Mobile launched another Samsung tablet: the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, which costs $600 (or $0 up front with $25 monthly payments for two years). We'll probably find out soon how much the Tab Pro 8.4 is going to cost.

You'd think they would release them with S801 & E5422 since they are newer than the pro series.

A friend of mine is interested to buy this to use as a main phone. I say by all means, just need to sling a small pouch.

Samsung uses microSIM. All their 3G/LTE tablets are phone enabled.

Is this true, even of the US tablets such as the Galaxy Note 8 LTE for ATT? It would be great to have a tablet with phone capability.

Yes. Every Samsung 3G and LTE Tablet from low end to high end.

The only exception is the very first tablet launch by them Galaxy Tab 1. That's the same configuration as Motorola Xoom.

I tried to put my unlimited data T-Mobile sim into a T-Mobile tablet and they blocked it.
