Looking for an Android tablet that won't leave a gaping hole in your wallet? On Friday, Sprint announced that it is offering the ZTE Optik 2 for just $29.99.

A 32GB capacity microSD slot allows you to add storage. The slate has a pair of snappers with a 5MP camera on back and a 2MP camera up front. The 4000mAh cell keeps the lights on, and Android 4.1.2 is pre-installed.

You can hook up your new ZTE Optik 2 with one of Sprint's Tablet Connection plans which includes a limited time offer giving you 2GB of data for $15 a month. Other monthly options include 25MB of data for $5, 100MB for $10, 3GB of data for $34.99 and 6GB of data for $49.99. For you data fiends, you can obtain 12GB of data a month for $79.99.

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.
