Samsung's flagship tablet and 4GB of Internet from $42 a month

Welcome to the post-PC era

Vodafone is offering Samsung’s 2015 flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2, on its 24 month wireless broadband plans as of today.

The telco is selling the 9.7-inch and the 8-inch version of Samsung’s 4G tablets on its 4GB wireless broadband plan. Pricing is a respective $54 and $42 per month over a two year contract.

Vodafone’s largest mobile broadband plan comes with a 50GB monthly allowance and is priced at $140. The 8-inch tablet is free over the life of the 24 month contract, although the 9.7-inch model is an additional cost of $12 a month.

Samsung’s flagship Tab S2 tablets went on sale in Australia last week. The slates will be compatible with Vodafone’s Cat4 LTE network, which has a theoretical maximum speed of 150Mbps.

Specifications of the two tablets are largely shared in spite of the screen size. Both tablets have a 2048x1536 resolution, use an sAMOLED panel, are powered by Samsung’s octa-core Exynos 533 chipset and have 32GB of internal storage.

The battery in the 9.7-inch, 4G variant managed to loop a video for 10-and-a-half hours during a test undertaken in our full review.

Outright retail pricing for the larger tablet is $749, while the similarly equipped 8-inch model costs $100 less at $649.

Following is Vodafone's plan matrix for the Galaxy Tab S2 as per the official press release.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
