Eyeing yourself a new smartphone and plan on handing your monies over to Sprint? If so, then there’s an upcoming promo just for you. Starting August 12th, Big S is handing out free tablets with any smartphone purchase! That means you could grab a spiffy new Galaxy S III or an iPhone 4S or heck even some of the lower end el cheapo phones.
The tablet in question, yes there is only one offered, is the ZTE Optik which you can check out here. It’s a pretty decent slate with a 1.2 GHZ dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM under that 7″ screen. Granted it is on Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) and most likely won’t get an official (hint,hint) update to Ice Cream Sandwich but thems the breaks sometimes. The tablet usually runs $99 on contract ($350 out an out) so free is a pretty tempting price point. Unknown right now is if anyone taking Sprint up on their offer will have to sign up for a data plan for their freebie, my gut says they’ll have to.
Any geeks feeling the urge to grab some new shiny devices at Sprint? Let us know after the jumpy jump!
