razor-thin 10.5-incher to actually be released with a Snapdragon 670 SoC under the hood, it's certainly nice to see the slightly thicker and faster 10.5-inch Tab S4 discounted... once again. This time around, it's Costco that offers its members the opportunity to save a whopping $250 or so on the combined list price of the 64GB Wi-Fi-only slate and its optional keyboard cover.While we continue to wait for the
The Galaxy Tab S4 typically starts at $650, with the productivity-enhancing accessory worth an additional $150. Of course, Samsung recently had both the tablet and keyboard on sale, still charging $625 for a bundle that fetches a measly $549.99 at Costco right now. The deal is good until March 29, with no catches or strings attached, bringing the complete Tab S4 package just $150 above the starting price of a Tab S5e that doesn't include a keyboard or a stylus.
Samsung's newest slate doesn't even support the S Pen that comes standard with the Android 8.1 Oreo-based "oldie." The Snapdragon 835 chipset inside the Tab S4 is still a powerhouse when paired with 4GB RAM, while a 7,300 mAh battery is purportedly capable of lasting for up to 16 hours of continuous video playback on a single charge.
Maybe the Galaxy Tab S4 is not as polished or well-balanced as a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, but the latter costs a whopping $649 by itself. And yes, the S Pen and Pogo pin-attaching keyboard are pretty great, making this Android device feel like a serious computing machine.
