Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0: US$399

Galaxy Tab S2 pre-orders in the US to begin today, 8-inch model starts at $399.99

As for pricing, the 8-inch model will start at $399.99 for the Wi-Fi model and the 9.7-inch model will be $499.99. Pricing for the LTE versions aren’t available, but they should cost $100 more than the Wi-Fi variants whenever they become available.

Samsung went for iPad-like pricing.

This is disappointing but no surprise.

Same-day update: Now listed at Best Buy. Yet just yesterday the staff at the Samsung Area had zero damn clue about when they’d get the S2 in!

Second same-day update: And it looks like Best Buy is getting an “exclusive” version of the S2 9.7:

  1. You yanks are spoiled. Here the entry 8” model goes for €420 ($450 if memory serves) and the entry 9.7 takes €100 extra. Add another €100 if you want the SIM slot, and some €60 for a cover. Absolute madness.

    It simply means we buy less. VAT is a great sales killer making the rich richer and the poor poorer.
