25MB of data.. Is that some kind of joke? I think the 2GB data package isn't bad for $15 but then again, Sprint's network is sketchy. Not a bad tablet in general.

Why would I want to add a tablet to my account when I'm going to be getting a phablet (Note 3) which can do more than just the tablet?

yes, but $20 more gets the better Galaxy Tab 3 anyway (which is only a dual core, but is at a higher clock, also has an Adreno 305 vs this 203, and has LTE and 3G instead of just 3G. Specs are otherwise similar)

Doesn't seem like a bad tablet by the specs for the price, but when I actually saw one, I changed my mind. The screen has a narrow viewing angle, so if you're not looking at it dead on, it fades out.
