Samsung new Galaxy Tab S2 tablet isn’t the coolest looking tablet on the market, but it is thin and sleek, pretty powerful, and comes with some nice software onboard. The S2, the new flagship in Samsung’s tablet line, became available for preorder today and will go on sale in the U.S. September 3. Samsung was kind enough to loan me a tablet to play with today, and my first impressions were overall pretty good.
Based on the S2’s specs, it looks like Samsung is trying to win over people who might normally buy an iPad. The Korean tech giant says it’s actively working with retailers to “offer a limited time tablet bonus trade-in offer” on “qualifying tablets.”This will see shoppers potentially secure $100 (or more) off the price of the Galaxy Tab S2. And you can bet your bootlaces the iPad is one of the aforementioned “qualifying” devices.
