Hardware wise, it appears that Vodafone has bucked the trend and gone with the Exynos 5 Octa-Core processor which is based on ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture and includes a 1.3 GHz Quadcore processor for the run-of-the-mill work, while a 1.9 GHz QuadCore processor steps in for the heavy lifting.
The tablet is ultra-thin, measuring just 6.6mm thick and very light, weighing in at a just 467 grams. The tablet includes the 10.5″ SuperAMOLED display which features 100,000:1 contrast ratio and true-to-life colour reproduction which covers more than 90% of Adobe RGB color coverage – in other words, it’s a great screen.
The tablet is compatible with the Vodafone 4G network which is one of the fastest we have here in Australia. Vodafone is also planning on investing $1 billion in its network this year to achieve what they believe is the fastest and most advanced LTE network in Australia. This means the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is compatible with the existing 1800MHz network, as well as the 850MHz spectrum which will be refarmed as LTE, in a bid by Vodafone to cover 95% of the metropolitan population by the end of the year.

Jason, enjoyed his time with the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 when it launched back in July, and you can read his thoughts here. We also have an 8.4″ and 10.5″ Galaxy Tab S for review, so look out for those in the near future. The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is available now, so if you’re wanting a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 on a plan, you’ve now got one more option.
