In a Monday announcement, bigwig US wireless carrier AT&T made a disclosure about its forthcoming offerings, and said that it will start selling two new Samsung devices - the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the ATIV Smart PC - from Friday, November 9, at its US retail stores.

According to the details shared by AT&T about the two forthcoming Samsung devices, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be available for $500; whereas the ATIV Smart PC will cost $800.
