Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 becomes part of the Cricket family starting tomorrow, December 16
Starving to see more tablet action, prepaid wireless carrier Cricket announced stellar news that should appease a whole range of customers in taking the leap and moving into a quality tablet.

Unlike some of the versions we’ve seen with most of the postpaid carriers, Cricket Wireless is being blessed with none other than the typical 16GB Wi-Fi only version of the popular Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 – as opposed to being some kind of cellular connected one. Still, it shouldn’t detract anyone from thinking about picking it up, seeing it’s priced competitively at $500 with no contract signing at all.

Obviously, there’s always going to be some sort of promotion to kick things off in the right direction, and rightfully so, that’s what potential customers will be seeing when it launches this Friday (December 16th) in all channels. Specifically, Cricket will be offering a $595 bundle deal that includes the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 with the carrier’s own Crosswave mobile broadband hotspot – plus, one month of service.

In the end, it’s nice to see that prepaid carriers are also willing to take the plunge and start bringing aboard tablets to their lineup – let’s just hope that we continue to see this trend with other prepaid carriers as well.

Um, you can get the galaxy tab wifi anywhere...who cares if cricket has it. And the crosswave, though very cool, cricket is not true unlimited, they throttle hard! With no tier data option because of their claim of unlimited. Don't do it!
