Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Tablet Lands At AT&T On September 4

In less than a week, you'll be able to waltz into an AT&T store and purchase a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet, if that's what you're after. Unveiled back in July, the Galaxy Tab S2 is Samsung's newest generation Android tablet with a slim and light profile. In fact, Samsung says the Galaxy Tab S2 boasts the thinnest and lightest metal frame of its size.

More specifically, the 9.7-inch tablet features a slender 5.6mm profile and checks in at just 389 grams. Compare those figures to Apple's iPad Air 2, which measures 6.1mm thick and weighs 437 grams. Granted, we're splitting hairs here, but as far as bragging rights go, they now belong to Samsung.
