T-Mobile finally kicks off Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and Galaxy Watch Active 2 sales

T-Mobile finally kicks off Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and Galaxy Watch Active 2 sales
We all know "soon" can be a relative term in the tech world, but when T-Mobile vaguely announced its plans to sell the Galaxy Tab S6 and Galaxy Watch Active 2 "soon", we certainly didn't expect the "Un-carrier" to take so long before actually picking up these Samsung devices.

Of course, all's well that ends well, and if you've been waiting for the past two and a half months to see Magenta kick off sales of the ultra-high-end 10.5-inch slate and the new fitness-centric smartwatch, you might rejoice hearing the wait is finally over. 

Available in a "mountain gray" color only, the LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is not exactly affordable at T-Mobile, fetching $725 all in all in a 128GB storage variant. That's lower than the starting price of an 11-inch iPad Pro with cellular connectivity, but also almost 100 bucks higher than what T-Mo is currently charging for Apple's newest iPad Air in an LTE-capable version. 

Obviously, you can always choose to split the full price of the Tab S6 into 24 monthly payments of $29 each after coughing up $29 upfront if you're a little short on cash in hand. In case you're wondering, this pricing structure is pretty much identical to that of the Verizon-specific Galaxy Tab S6 LTE model, which happens to be available both from Big Red and Samsung's own US e-store. Curiously enough, T-Mobile's Tab S6 is not up for grabs on the device manufacturer's official website, although that's likely to change in the near future.

While the Galaxy Tab S6 has yet to be released on the other two major US carriers, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is now available with standalone cellular support from Samsung, as well as all big four wireless service providers. The Tizen-powered wearable device is priced at $430 and $450 in 40 and 44mm sizes respectively pretty much everywhere, including on T-Mobile. In comparison, non-LTE variants can be purchased for as little as $280 and $300.
