Comcast's Xfinity Mobile starts selling iPads and Apple Watch
Xfinity Mobile, Comcast's wireless carrier that operates as an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) on Verizon's network, has decided to expand its offering two years after launch. Besides phones, Xfinity Mobile will sell tablets and smartwatches starting this week.

At the moment, the carrier will only offer customers various iPad models and Apple Watch Series 4, Engadget reports. The iPads have already been listed on Xfinity's website, but the Apple Watch will be available from June 28.

These devices cost the same as they do elsewhere, so you won't be scoring any deals if you're not an Xfinity subscriber, in which case you'll be able to get a tablet or smartwatch for $10 per month (added to the plan).

The iPads and Apple Watch are available in participating Xfinity retail stores only, which means you can't buy them online. For the time being, the carrier offers four different LTE-enabled iPad models: iPad 9.7-inch (6th generation), iPad Air 10.5-inch, iPad mini 7.9-inch, and iPad Pro 10.5-inch.

Qualcomm: in order to use our chips, you have to sign a licensing deal, pay for the chip and we get a percentage of the sale. Apple: we don't want to pay that we feel.its unfair and greedy. *****Days later***** Apple: Comcast, since you sell.our phones through Xfinity, in order to get selling them you must also sell the iPad and the Watch. Comcast: This is BS. Why do we. Apple saying one thing and doing something totally different. What frikkin hypocrites.

You're wrong! You need to read this article. According to this article, Apple demand Comcast also sell iPad and Watch through its MVNO.https://www.phonearena.com/news/Apple-Comcast-Charter-iPad-discounts-subsidies_id116885 Learn to be a tech fan vs a fanboy. I know what I was talking about. Quote from article "Apple is now demanding they sell iPadsand other fruity paraphernalia if they want to be selling iPhones as well." Understand now?!
