Apple outs T-Mobile's tablet news: gives iPad data plan pricing
T-Mobile has teased an announcement coming tomorrow via Twitter, and the early buzz has been that the announcement will have something to do with tablets. Of course, T-Mobile apparently didn't square away with Apple that it was trying to hold on to some mystery around the event, because Apple's website has kind of spoiled the surprise by giving out the iPad data plan pricing on the carrier.

Apple outs T-Mobile's tablet news: gives iPad data plan pricing
T-Mobile CEO John Legere confirmed that the carrier would be offering the iPad, and this marks a first for T-Mobile. The carrier has sold tablets before, but only a couple have been mobile data enabled; and, of course T-Mobile has never sold the iPad directly before. According to Apple's website, an iPad on T-Mobile will get 200MB of data for free. By comparison AT&T charges $14.99 for 250MB of data, and neither Sprint nor Verizon offer plans under 1GB. 

However, we expect that the big news tomorrow will be that the other plans will get price drops for T-Mobile. Currently, Apple has the 2.5GB plan listed at $30 and the 4GB plan at $40, but the carrier's newest deals for mobile data with Hotspot offer 2.5GB for $20 and 4GB for $30. Given that the prices listed by Apple are relatively on par with the competition, it seems likely that T-Mobile will be dropping those prices.

As much as I love t-Mobile, those rates are nothing new or surprising or even all that great. It's standard practice for their other devices.

Actually T-Mobile offers some things way better than other carriers. I'm on the simple choice plan with unlimited minutes, texts, and data. My phone runs 3G, so 4G doesn't apply to me.

My last plan was with AT&T for mobile share 1GB at $40 plus $45 per smartphone. They charged me every month $150 for two smartphones for unlimited mins,texts, but only 1GB data shared between the two devices.

Now I have 4 devices on T-Mobile with plan described above, and I pay around $130 ish.

Basically, AT&Twas(and still is) raping people with prices. They can smd, but I ain't stupid. Plus T-Mobile coverage is good where I live and not like it use to be.

How about unlimited 4G LTE for $40-$50, that would devastate Sprint, ATT and Verizons tablet sales.

Well whether or not Michael didn't get his facts straight, it doesn't really matter since it's Sprint after all.
