Sprint to soon give away a free tablet with each new smartphone purchase?
ZTE Optik, a device that has been under $100 in price since its launch. The tablet has a 7 inch screen with resolution of 1280 x 800 and pixel density of 218ppi. A dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 is under the hood while 1GB of RAM is on board and 16GB of native storage is included. That can be expanded with the use of the 32GB capacity microSD slot on the tablet. There is a 5MP camera on back that captures video, and a 2MP camera in front for self-portraits and video chat. A 4,000mAh battery keeps the lights on while Android Honeycomb 3.2 is installed. The ZTE Optik has 3G connectivity.
This seems like it could be a great deal for the back to school crowd and the dates that the promotion runs seems to confirm this. The free tablet is yours with a smartphone purchase at Sprint from August 12th through September 30th. And with Sprint cutting the price on the Apple iPhone 4S to $149.99, and offering free activation as well, getting a tablet at zero cost is more than the icing on the cake. It's the rainbow sprinkles on the icing on the cake.
