10.5-inch premium tablet available this week

CHICAGO (November 24, 2014) – U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) has announced that the Samsung Galaxy Tab® S 10.5 will be available tomorrow online and in stores. Samsung's premium tablet will be available in Titanium Bronze and Dazzling White, and qualified customers can add it to their Shared Connect plan for just $10 per month and pay no money down in store using U.S. Cellular's retail installment option.

"We want to help families simplify their lives during this busy season, so we provide the best devices with a network that works where you live, work and play."

The Galaxy Tab S combines its thin and light design with a Super AMOLED display that has twice the pixels of an HDTV for the ultimate viewing experience. The 10.5-inch screen makes it a great tablet for multi-tasking, and with Multi Window, you can have two apps open at the same time or simultaneously email and watch a video.
