Samsung temporarily shaves $100 off the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5
If you're looking to purchase an Android tablet with a vibrant, high-definition display, then pay close attention. Samsung is now temporarily offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5 at $100 off the usual retail price.

The 8.4-inch version of the Galaxy Tab S with 16GB of integrated storage space is now available at Samsung's official US website at $299.99, down from $399.99. The 16GB version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is now priced at $399.99, down from $499.99. The deal lasts until April 11th, so if this sounds like a good deal to you, make sure to hurry up. If you need more space for your pics and videos, don't worry, the tablets also come with microSD slots that accept cards of up to 128GB in size.

Like some versions of the Galaxy Note 3, the Wi-Fi only versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S are based on the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5420, a chipset that integrates four 1.9GHz Cortex-A15 CPU cores, four 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 CPU cores, as well as a Mali-T628 MP6 GPU. With specs such as a 1600 x 2560 Super AMOLED display, an octa-core chipset, 3GB of RAM, 8MP primary cameras, and 2.1MP front-facing shooters, all in bodies that measure just 6.6mm across the waist, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S series is one of the top Android tablets currently available on the market. As an added bonus, the tablet series is now being gradually updated to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.

Some rumors and leaks hint that Samsung is already working on the Galaxy Tab S2 series. This recent price cut can be interpreted as the manufacturer's desire to clear out stocks of the original Tab S series before the launch of the new tablets, but this is nothing more than pure speculation at this point.

If this sounds like a good deal, you can buy the 16GB Galaxy Tab S 8.5 from the link here, or the 16GB Galaxy Tab S 10.5 from the link here.

What? Temporarily shaved off? That cant be right. If the iPad Air shed $100 off permanently, why not this one?

Its one thing to reduce price on the company's latest and best tablet on the market and an another thing to reduce price an older gen product which released 1.5 years ago.

-Samsung didnt build the hyoe around it -iPad is still dominating the tablet business -Most tablet buyers are too familiar with iPad -Basically the reason is iPad. Case closed!

I think the screen sizes are probably an issue for some people. 8.4" can be considered slightly too small for a tablet and 10.5" can be too big. I think 9" is pretty much perfect.

Unless you really, really, really want Android, the iPad Air 2 is the better tablet. Much faster, better apps, better software support.

I have the larger model. I have never been pleased with it. The fluidity is horrible. Eyxnos is terrible. Battery is blah. Display is great. Since lollipop really no improvement.

i recognise your nick to be a troll. Always complaining about Samsung device. If you are unhappy with Samsung device, simple sell it or dump it. I always give away my old samsung devices to friends and relatives. Your constant whining is getting old.
