T-Mobile announces "Operation Tablet Freedom"
T-Mobile's new tablet plan offers 1GB of free data for tablets owned by T-Mobile's customers with a calling plan. That is added to the 200MB of free tablet data offered by the carrier to all tablets, bringing the total amount of free data to 1.2GB for T-Mobile's voice subscribers. In addition, T-Mobile will now sell LTE enabled tablets for the same price as the Wi-Fi only version of the same device. That means that a 16GB LTE enabled Apple iPad Air would cost $499 at T-Mobile, instead of $629. You can also trade in your Wi-Fi only tablet to buy one with LTE connectivity, for nothing down. Lastly, if you are stuck in a contract with a carrier, you can split for T-Mobile and with a trade-in, the carrier will pay your ETF.
With the Samsung Galaxy S5 launching tomorrow, Legere writes in his blog that the next initiative will be announced on Monday. He plans on tweeting out hints over the weekend. We will keep a close eye on what Legere has to say to see if we can figure out what T-Mobile will be announcing on Monday.
