It’s back to school season and T-Mobile’s got some deals to celebrate, even if you’re not actually heading back to school.
First up, T-Mobile’s “Get a Tablet on Us” offer is back. This time around it’s the Alcatel OneTouch PIXI 7 that’s being given away. All that you have to do is pay the sales tax and attach it to any qualifying tablet data plan. Here are the specs of the PIXI 7, which T-Mo says is its best-selling tablet:
- 7-inch 1024×600 display
- 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor
- 2-megapixel rear, 0.3-megapixel front cameras
- 8GB of storage (4GB available to the user)
- microSD slot that supports cards up to 32GB
- 1GB of RAM
- LTE bands 2, 4, and 12
- 3240mAh battery
- Android 5.0 Lollipop
Obviously the PIXI 7 isn’t going to melt your face off with raw performance, but it could make for a nice little tablet to throw in your bag and keep you connected while you’re out and about. That’s especially true when you’re just paying sales tax for the tablet itself.
T-Mobile’s “Get a Tablet on Us” promo will be available to existing customers on August 14, and it’ll launch to everyone on August 19.
T-Mobile also notes that it’s still offering its Simple Choice family plan with four lines that each get 10GB of data for $120 per month. That deal will run through September 8. There’s also the iPhone deal that’ll get you the iPhone 6 now for $0 down and $15 per month, then a free upgrade to the next iPhone so long as you upgrade before the end of the year. Finally, businesses who switch to T-Mobile before September 30 and sign up for a 5GB data plan can get a $350 service credit per line.
T-Mo is turning into T-Mo’ Deals, and right now is a good time for that to be happening since kids are going back to school and parents are equipping them with everything they’ll need, including tablets and cell phone service.
