Samsung Tab S tablets now available via Optus

When Samsung announced the new Galaxy Tab S range a little while ago, we knew it wouldn’t be long before they’d be available on a range of carrier repayment plans, and it seems that Optus has done just that today.

Jason went hands on with a pre-release version of the 10.5″ variant of the Galaxy Tab S earlier in July 2014, and seemed to be pretty impressed with it.

What makes the Tab S range so cool?

This range is slim and light, reminiscent of the iPad Air. Power in a thin case. Multi-window functionality allows you to use more than one app at a time (as you would on a desktop), while SlideSync allows ready synchronisation of data, browser windows and more between your tablet and compatible Samsung smartphone. You can read more about the Tab S features on Samsung’s Tab S microsite.

While an official launch announcement from Samsung is forthcoming, Optus have gone right ahead and launched some pretty competitive pricing today. You can see the primary pricing above:

  • Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, from $26 per month
  • Galaxy Tab S 8.4, from $29 per month
  • Galaxy Tab S 10.5, from $33 per month

Do note, though, that this pricing includes only 100MB of data, which isn’t a great deal. Add another $15 to those prices, and you’re looking at 1.5GB per month, or for $25 more, you get 4GB of data which is pretty competitive.
