AT&T is offering Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet for just $199–that’s $200 off the full price with a two-year contract–when you buy a Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active or Galaxy Note II smartphone from the carrier. The deal starts Friday, June 21 in stores and online.
Take note, however: the Galaxy Note 8.0 with Wi-Fi retails for $399. So if you’re buying AT&T’s LTE model with a $10 monthly fee for data, you’re actually spending $200 out front plus $240 over the two-year contract, for a total cost of $440.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 is a solid choice for anyone looking to purchase a mid-sized tablet with note-taking capabilities. It offers an 8-inch display with a 1280 x 800-pixel resolution, a 4,600mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and Samsung’s S Pen for jotting down notes or creating sketches. It also features the South Korean’s company’s TouchWiz interface with a gamut of software add-ons.
