EE Introduces Their First Android Tablets – Galaxy Note 10.1 & Google Nexus 7

December 14, 2012 - Written By Kody Frazier

EE, or Everything Everywhere, is a 4G mobile network provider in the UK, which until now has not offered a single Android tablet. A press release from today shows that will no longer be the case, as the company is now adding the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Google Nexus 7 to their lineup. These contract subsidized Android tablets will be available as part of packages available to consumers in retail stores and online.

The UK provider is a little steep on the pricing, and not everyone is a fan of the 2-year contracts, but the expansion of lineup is nice to see for those looking for 4G devices in the UK. EE already carries a lineup of Apple devices, and their new Android competitors should hit the shelves this upcoming weekend.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 packages are:

  4GEE 8GB 4GEE 5GB 4GEE 3GB
Samsung Galaxy  Note 10.1 LTE (one off fee) £99.99 £199.99 £249.99
Monthly plan (24 months) £35.99pm £30.99pm £25.99pm
Wi-fi hotspot access Included Included Included

The Google Nexus 7 packages are:

  4GEE 8GB 4GEE 5GB 4GEE 3GB
Nexus 7 & Huawei mobile wifi (one off fee) £29.99 £29.99 £49.99
Monthly plan (24 months) £35.99pm £30.99pm £25.99pm
Wi-fi hotspot access Included Included Included

Paul Jevons, Director of Products and Devices, EE, said:

“We’re pleased to be announcing our first Android tablets on the EE brand just in time for Christmas.  With these new devices, we’re extending the possibilities of what 4G has to offer to an even wider range of users, so they can work or play with greater freedom than ever before.”
