T-Mobile‘s customers who subscribe to the company’s @Work business plan and have recently bought either the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus are still eligible to receive a free Samsung Desktop Experience (DeX) station, according to the official promo website of the South Korean consumer electronics manufacturer. While existing owners of the Galaxy S8-series handsets can still take advantage of the offer, the promo itself has ended on May 10, Samsung said, adding that anyone who purchased either device until that date will be notified about their free mobile accessory as long as they have registered their purchase. Doing so can be done by following the source link beneath this writing and Samsung will require you to provide a proof of purchase while registering the handset. Eligible customers can only redeem their gifts until May 31, though the docks themselves may take several weeks to ship, depending on their availability and shipping address.
The Samsung DeX station is a mobile accessory meant to serve as the latest phone-to-PC solution, i.e. a device that provides users with the option of docking their Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus and connecting it to an external monitor, as well as standard computer peripherals. The solution itself isn’t revolutionary but is aimed at non-demanding users who don’t use their desktops and laptops for much more than Internet browsing and document editing. The accessory is regularly priced at $149.99 in the United States, meaning Samsung’s offer for T-Mobile @Work subscribers is likely worth applying for.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus were officially released in late April, following months of anticipation and rumors. The latest pair of Android-powered flagships created by Samsung is currently enjoying an extremely positive response from both tech critics and consumers alike, with initial reports claiming that Samsung already sold more than five million units in less than a month since the Galaxy S8 family hit the market. Some industry watchers predict that the company’s mobile division will post record profits this year due to the new flagships and while it remains to be seen whether that ends up happening, an update on the commercial performance of the Galaxy S8 phones should be available shortly.
