Samsung’s latest foray into tablets is making its way to Vodafone, with the carrier announcing two new additions to its tablet range. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2 (9.7″ model) and Galaxy Tab A (8.0″ model) are now available from Vodafone on a range of data plans.
Vodafone’s Director of Sales, Ben McIntosh, told Ausdroid that the company was excited to be offering Samsung’s state of the art tablets to Australians who are consuming more data than ever, with mobile data downloads doubling year on year, according to recent Australian Bureau of Statistic figures:
The impressive hardware specs of these two tablets combined with a 4G plan and coverage on Vodafone’s fast 4G network offer customers plenty of possibilities such as gaming, watching movies and television shows, browsing the internet and much more.
