Codrut Nistor,

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 has been around since mid-July when this premium tablet was unveiled and quickly entered the Asian market. Unfortunately, North America did not get it back then, but this will no longer be a problem as Tab S2 is now finally available in the US. Even more, a custom version by Barnes & Noble is also available.

Available in two sizes (8-inch and 9.7-inch), the Galaxy Tab S2 is powered by Samsung's Exynos 5433 SoC and has 3 GB of memory, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage, as well as microSD support. They both feature a fingerprint scanner, a Super AMOLED display with 2,048X1,536 pixels, a 2.1 MP front camera and an 8 MP image snapper on the back. 

While the WiFi only Galaxy Tab S2 can be acquired via Amazon, the 4G LTE versions will be sold by large carriers that offer such connectivity - T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Sprint. The WiFi Tab S2 8.0 starts at $399 USD while its larger sibling retails for $100 USD more. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Nook has the same specs and features as the regular version, but comes with free ebooks and magazines, $5 USD starter credit for the Nook store, and a few other Nook-centric freebies.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
