Samsung has confirmed the US pricing and release date for the Galaxy Tab S3, the latest addition to its tablet lineup. The 9.7-inch device arrives in stores on March 24. It is bundled with a pressure-sensitive S Pen stylus and retails for US$599.99.

Starting tomorrow (March 17th), the tablet may be pre-ordered through Samsung, Best Buy or Amazon. Black and silver color variants will be available.

Like other high-end tablets, including the iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Pro 4, the Tab S3 has an optional keyboard accessory that helps it double as a laptop. The keyboard cover sells for $130 and will also be available on the 24th.
