Samsung Galaxy Tab S

Wifi Tabs to cost $399.99 and $499.99, LTE versions coming to AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon later this year

Following yesterday's Samsung Galaxy Tab S announcements, Samsung has begun taking pre-orders for its new 8.4 or 10.5-inch slabs in the U.S. market.

Samsung's own online store started taking pre-orders Galaxy Tab S 8.4 or Galaxy Tab S 10.5 at 12:01am ET June 13, ahead of general availability in July. The 8.4-inch Wifi-only Tab will set you back $399.99, while the 10.5-incher costs $499.99. Launch outlets include Samsung.com, Amazon, Best Buy, Fry's, Office Depot, Office Max, PC Richard & Son, Sears, Tiger Direct and Walmart.com.

Samsung's pre-order page says the Tabs will ship between 10 and 14 days from now, while Amazon suggests a June 26 release for the Tab S 8.4 and a June 27 arrival for the 10.5, so either way you're looking at a similar shipping window. Both outlets offer the new Tabs with free shipping.

As for the LTE-capable model, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will get the 10.5-inch Tab S, while Verizon will carry the 8.4 and 10.5-inch versions. Samsung says the cellular Tab S devices will arrive in the U.S. later this year.

Over in the UK, Samsung has a pre-registration page live for the Tab S, but no price or pre-order options yet.
