A few days ago, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 was expected to be heading for T-Mobile and sure enough, here it is. The launch hasn’t got an official press release yet, but the tablet is available for ordering online. We’re yet to tell you the best part – it can be picked up for $0 upfront.
Of course, the $0 is coupled with a $13 monthly fee for the hardware for a period of two years. So if you add that up, the device cost amounts to $312. The main features of the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 include a 1.7GHz dual core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, Android 4.2, 3MP and 1.3MP cameras and a 7-inch 1024 x 600p touchscreen.
As TmoNews points out, the Google Nexus 7 at $15 per month on a customer contract of two years sounds like a much better deal even if the total price sums up to $360. The tablet has a quad core 1.5GHz chipset, 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM, Android 4.3, 5MP and 1.2MP cameras and a 7-inch 1920 x 1200p display.
Not hellbent on Android, but shopping for a T-Mobile tablet? The carrier also sells Apple’s iPad Air and iPad mini Retina. The 16GB version of the latter can be grabbed for free on a $22.08 monthly plan stretching over two years. The 9-inch iOS tablet arrives with a $99.99 upfront cost and $22.08 monthly for two years.
Here’s the T-Mobile link you want to hit if the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 looks good to you. It connects to Wi-Fi and is 4G LTE-capable too.
