T-Mobile today announced a new tablet for its lineup, in the Alcatel A30 TABLET. This is a pretty low-end tablet, with a full retail price of $125. It'll be available for $5 down and $5/month or $125 full retail price on May 12th. The Alcatel A30 TABLET can be added to your existing T-Mobile ONE plan for just $20/month and you get unlimited data for your new tablet. Of course, don't forget that if you use less than 2GB of data per month on that line, you are eligible for Kickback, which gets you a $10 credit each month, making the cost even lower. Not to mention, taxes and fees are included, so there's no need to worry about how much the tablet will cost you, it'll be a flat $25 ($20 for connectivity and $5 for the actual tablet) per month.
The Alcatel A30 TABLET is a great tablet to pick up for those that are looking for a device to use for watching movies and TV shows. T-Mobile has not announced many of its specifications, but we do know that it has 5-megapixel cameras on the front and back of the device. And given its price tag, it's likely pretty low-end as far as the other specs go. The Alcatel A30 TABLET becomes the cheapest tablet available at T-Mobile – unless you look at their certified refurbished models.
Tablets haven't been selling as well as many companies had hoped, in recent years, but wireless carriers are still pushing them. Often times looking to add lower-priced tablets and ones that they can basically give away when someone buys a new flagship smartphone. Since it allows them to add more lines, but also bring in a bit more money each month in terms of service. The Alcatel A30 TABLET foots that bill pretty well, and it'll likely be one of their more popular tablets, even though they do have the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 as well as Apple's iPad lineup, both of which are selling incredibly well for T-Mobile already. Tomorrow you'll be able to get the Alcatel A30 TABLET for just $5 down or $125 outright in store and online.
