Instead of buying a burger, you can spend $1 to buy the AT&T Trek 2 HD tablet

Sure, you can spend that last dollar in your wallet for a greasy burger that has the consistency of a hockey puck. Or, you could buy the AT&T Trek 2 HD Tablet. With a signed two-year pact, you can buy the unit for that same buck you were going to use at Mickey D's. Or, you can use an equipment installment plan and purchase the tablet for $150 spread out over 20 months (paying $7.50 a month).

The Trek 2 HD comes with an 8-inch screen carrying a resolution of 800 x 1280. Driving the slab is an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional storage. The device has a 5MP camera in back and another 5MP snapper in front; the 4600mAh battery provides up to 10.5 hours of use. The Quick Charge feature means that your tablet doesn't spend too much time on the sidelines, plugged into a wall outlet. A Type-C port is on board. The Trek 2 HD also allows you to stream your favorite television programming from DIRECTV. That is, assuming you are a DIRECTV subscriber of course.

The tablet will be available from AT&T starting on August 5th. To see more information on the Trek 2 HD, click on the video at the top of this story.

Instead of buying a burger today, Okay! No problem. Instead of buying burger for two years, No sorry. Click bait!

Or instead of buying less than a dozen burgers at Five Guys or Shake Shack, use that money to get a better tablet at full price but contract free.

I'm glad my burger doesn't come with an installment plan.

Again, buying a janky GSM flip phone unlocked from Aliexpress is less shady than these contract deals.

DIRECTV sucks! I'd rather sacrifice a bit of quality and use Primewire (free) and Hulu ($8), most of the shows these days aren't very good anyways.

Burger is better than any android tablet.
