The Samsung Galaxy Tab E was announced back in June and was launched in the Taiwanese market. The 9.6″ slate this week found its way to the US where Verizon began offering the product at $329.99 per unit.
The above pricing depicts the off contract cost of the tablet but you can purchase the device on a two-year contract for $129.99. If you don’t want to put down a whole $329.99 at once, Verizon will allow you to settle $13.74 per month for 24 months (if you are qualified for the package).
Verizon’s newest “family tablet” spec-wise features a 9.6-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. While the base model that went on sale in Taiwan didn’t provide a SIM slot, Verizon’s version comes with a micro SIM slot which supports Verizon’s XLTE connectivity for superfast Internet access.
Powering the Galaxy Tab E is a quad-core CPU alongside 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB ROM and a 128GB microSD slot. The slate runs on a TouchWiz UI-skinned version of Google’s Android Lollipop 5.1.1 platform and offers 21 hours of usage time on its 7300mAh battery according to Verizon.
Last month, Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S2 slate in the United States. The high end slate offers more screen pixels as well as other inwards specifications than the Tab E but attracts a much higher pricing at $499.99.
