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.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
