By Andrew Kameka on Thursday June 19, 2014

Samsung began accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy Tab S last week, and the company has now confirmed that it will begin selling the Super AMOLED tabs next week. General availability for the Tab S 8.4 and 10.5 models will begin June 27th when the Wi-Fi models go on sale for $399.99 and $499.99 respectively.
