Billed as ‘perfect for streaming on the go’ on a range of 4G-packed data plans, two of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab tablets have joined Vodafone’s range.
Vodafone’s Director of Sales, Ben McIntosh, said 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 (from December 2014).
McIntosh said: “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.”
The first tablet is the larger 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2, available for $54 per month (comprising of $24 device cost on Vodafone’s $30 Mobile Broadband plan over 24 months; total min cost $1,296) with 4GB of data to use in Australia.
Praised for its high performance and sleek design, it naturally boasts Samsung’s bright and vivid Super AMOLED screen technology, features an improved Octa-Core processor and boasts battery life of up to 12 hours, all in a slim 5.6mm chassis.
McIntosh added: “The Galaxy Tab S2’s large and razor sharp screen is perfect for all of those Australians who are constantly using their mobile devices to stream content nowadays.
“We already know that Samsung smartphones have brilliant screens, but with the Tab S2 you get that on a larger scale.
“Samsung has packed plenty into these tablets, yet the Tab S2 is only 5.6mm thick and weighs a mere 392 grams - around the same weight as a paperback novel - so it’s easy and convenient to carry around with you.”
The second tablet is the slightly smaller Galaxy Tab A 8.0, available for $42 per month (comprising $12 device cost on the $30 Mobile Broadband plan over 24 months; total min cost $1,008) with 4GB of data for use in Australia.
The compact Galaxy Tab A 8.0 also sports a long battery life of up to 12 hours, and naturally features access to apps including Microsoft Office for Android, Catch-up TV services and Samsung Kids Mode.
As the Tab A series isn’t as slim as the S2 series, this model is 7.5mm thick, but its lower price tag offers plenty of premium features for a budget friendly price.
McIntosh said: “Vodafone is committed to offering a range of devices that will suit all budgets and needs. The Tab A has all the bells and whistles of a premium tablet without the premium price-tag.”
