For those looking to pick up the Galaxy Book2, you can now order it direct from Samsung, Microsoft, and AT&T in the United States. Later this month, Sprint and Verizon will also be stocking the device in its stores as well.
The Samsung Galaxy Book2 combines the best of Surface Pro with the long-lasting battery power of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 ARM processor with 4G LTE. Featuring a Super AMOLED display, S-pen for inking, included backlit-keyboard, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage the Galaxy Book2 is built for those who need to work anywhere at any time.
Alanna Cotton, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Samsung Electronics America had this to say about the new Galaxy Book2:
By building out our 2-in-1 portfolio and adding LTE connectivity, we're ensuring consumers can stay connected on the mobile computing device that's perfect for them to get more done and express their creativity
In our in-depth review of the Galaxy Book2, we praised the outstanding display, clean design, pen, audio, and even the performance – which can rival Intel's Core i3 or i5 processors in multi-core tests when using apps from the Microsoft Store.
Microsoft and Samsung are selling the device direct for $999.00 while AT&T has it for $999.99 or $50 a month using a 0% APR on a 20-month instalment agreement.
Microsoft is also offering student, teachers, parents, and military discounts, which knocks the price down to $899.10 for those who qualify. Immediate shipping is available from AT&T, while Samsung is mid-November, and Microsoft is still updating current stock.
