Newer Samsung Tablets

Why do you not offer some of the newer Samsung Tablets Like the S5e and specifically the Tablet S6. Your newest is the S4. I'm intrested in getting the S6. I've always gotten my tablets through ATT and want that option, is there a reason why you only seem to have the latest Apple products available and not Samsung.

Hello, @ken3317,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Samsung tablets are available for purchase on our site, such as the S5e. If the one you want isn't currently available for online purchase, you may want to check with your local AT&T Store. They may have the one you want in stock.

 

Have a great week.

I'm just guessing, but it could be that the S6 - which is a 2-in-1 tablet - doesn't have a cellular version... so far. Looking at the tablets AT&T offers, they all seem to have cellular capabilities - at least all the Samsungs do, and I quit looking after the first 5 iPads listed.

Other carriers offer the S6, even without the cellular capability.

Perhaps AT&T wants to always have a way to add a mobile data line (and another fee) to your account.

Att is the only carrier not selling a cellular version

I knew they were sold at other carriers, but I only really checked the specs on Samsung's site and a few sites like phonearena, which listed the carriers they are sold at (all the big ones except AT&T) but didn't list any cellular connectivity. While they did list the cell bands used on other tablets. Guess I didn't look hard enough.

I didn't bother to look at the other carrier sites to see what they listed.

I go to the OEM's site anymore as GSMarena and Phonearena are almost never right with specs anymore.

The other giveaway is the price. Cellular tablets are almost always 100+ more than WiFi these days.

AT&T doesn't sell a lot of tablets other than iPads, so they don't stock them. I would love a high-end portable Android tablet, but I have been disappointed in Samsung in the past and have given up. Apple supports the iPad for many years, Samsung gives up after 2. Makes android tablets a poor investment.

Stock is low now anyway. Even if you ordered an iPad you would probably have about a one month wait for shipping. Tablets and watches are considered low priority at this time, they are not being shipped from the manufacturers oh, and there are long Waits going through customs.

If you buy direct from manufacturer, you can order a higher end device to use with AT&T.
