T-Mobile G-Slate price drops to $399.99 with contract (after $200 mail-in rebate)
This certainly seems like it’s the day of price cuts. Following in the footsteps of the HTC Droid Incredible 2, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, and HTC HD7S that all had prices cut one way or the other, it’s now tablet time. T-Mobile’s G-Slate, to be more specific. This is the tablet also known as the LG Optimus Pad, and it’s got some fancy 3D built right in.
When it launched, the G-Slate was going for a (quite expensive) $529.99 with a new two-year T-Mobile data contract (after a $100 mail-in rebate). Today, there’s some good news, and some bad news concerning T-Mobile’s pricing of this tablet.
The good news is that you’ll end up paying just $399.99 for the tablet, which is clearly a more decent price level. However, the two-year data contract is still required. And the biggest caveat is that you reach the $399.99 price after a $200 mail-in rebate.
That’s not your average mail-in rebate level, granted. T-Mobile does seem to be pushing things a bit here. Wouldn’t it be awesome if all carriers followed Sprint in simply getting rid of mail-in rebates altogether? Ah, utopia.
Anyway, if you’re interested in purchasing a T-Mobile G-Slate, head on over to the magenta carrier’s website now and place your order.
