Sprint will be the first carrier to offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab S. The 10.5-inch slate, known for its lightweight figure and incredibly colorful super-HD screen, will go on sale starting September 12 at Sprint stores and online.

The tablet retails for $650, or you can opt for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $27 instead. Adding it to your family plan will only set you back $10 a month, however Sprint is currently promoting its Family Share Pack, which offers 22GB of shared data (usually only 20GB, but they're currently adding a 2GB bonus) as well as unlimited talk and text for only $100 per month through 2015.

Sprint recently shook up its pricing plans by adding a $60 unlimited data option for individuals, however no word on whether you can include a 4G LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S onto that deal. We've reached out to Sprint for clarification and will update when we hear back.

Check out the CNET review of the Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 -- heralded as the best movie watching slate available -- and the 8.4-inch model. No word on if the smaller sibling will also land at Sprint, but a LTE capable model is expected.
