AT&T appears to have a new pricing strategy when it comes to the LTE version of Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 . The Note 8.0 will cost $399, the same price as the Wi-Fi version, if you sign a two-year contract.
The carrier usually sells tablets for an unsubsidized price and allows you to pay for data on a month-to-month basis. But lately AT&T has backed off that, encouraging customers to sign up for contracts with discounts on tablet prices.
The unsubsidized option is likely to be available as well, though that information isn't available yet and might not be until the Galaxy Note 8.0 goes on sale later this week (June 21).Source article
