When AT&T launched DirecTV Now it turned into one of the most compelling options for OTT streaming, if you wanted a ton of channels like a traditional cable package. It’s hard to argue with the massive lineup on DirecTV Now, but that means that its base package starts at just $ 35 per month, barring any discounts. So […]

Pre-orders for Samsung’s Galaxy Tab E are said to open May 6th on AT&T.
According to trusted sources, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab E will soon be up for pre-order on AT&T’s wireless network. It’ll cost 0$ down payment, and just $ 10 per month thereafter plus the cost of your data allowance. The contract-free price is yet to be revealed.
As a refresher, the Galaxy Tab E sports a 8-inch display and is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. A conservative 1.5GB of RAM is onboard with 16GB of internal memory (not all usable). However, if you need more, just pop a microSD card into the Tab E’s built-in slot. Google’s latest OS version in that of Marshmallow is pre-loaded, so there’s no need to wait on the update after purchasing.
Buyers will get some apps from the AT&T-owned DIRECTV and get access to Samsung’s KNOX security features, which will also be preloaded. Color choices that’ll be available remain to be heard from the carrier, but we’ll find out soon.
