Yesterday, T-Mobile announced its new Tablet Freedom initiative. 2nd of three new phases in the Un-carrier movement. With the last of the three due to land on Monday, Tablet Freedom and the new $40 Simple Starter plan will be going live from tomorrow, April 12th.
Tablet Freedom combined a discount of tablets down to Wi-Fi only pricing, and offering up to 1.2GB of free data each month until the end of the year. We’ve been sent a pricing sheet that’s been sent around retail staff to be printed out and used in stores to encourage customers to take up the offer.
As you can see, both the iPad Air and iPad mini will be available for $499 and $399 respectively, while the Tab 2 10.1 will set you back $349, Nexus 7 and Tab 3 are $279 and $199 respectively. As for down payments, the table shows examples between $14-$35 and monthly EIP payments ranging from just over $8 to just under $21 depending on which tablet you choose. As mentioned yesterday, you can also get $20 off the 3GB and 5GB mobile internet plans.
