If you’re a T-Mobile customer who wants a new tablet, now is a great time to take the plunge. T-Mobile recently announced a new program called “Operation Tablet Freedom,” which lets existing voice customers add a tablet to their plan at no extra cost. In addition to the 200 MB of free data T-Mobile already gives tablet customers each month, “Operation Tablet Freedom” adds an extra gigabyte of free data every month through the end of the year, which will save you $10 per month. Not enough of a hook? T-Mobile says you can buy any tablet for no money down, and all cellular tablets will be the same price as their Wi-Fi counterpart. That means a 16 gig iPad Air with LTE will cost $499, rather than the normal $629 sticker price you’d pay anywhere else. You can also trade in your old Wi-Fi only tablet to T-Mobile to save even more money. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to buy a shiny new tablet, now’s as good a time as ever.
