Starting August 12th and going all the way through September 30th, Sprint will be giving out free tablets with any smartphone purchase. Any phone you buy, even free phones, will still net you a free ZTE Optik tablet.
The ZTE Optik is actually a somewhat impressive piece of hardware. Powered by a 1.2 GHz dual core Snapdragon S3 (MSM8660) processor with 1GB of RAM, this tablet has a 7″ 1280×800 screen and 16GB of built in memory. Pretty impressive for a free tablet, even though it’s still on Honeycomb. Knowing ZTE and this tablets popularity, don’t expect ICS.
Wait for the 12th, then grab a new Sprint phone for a free tablet. It’s unknown whether you’d have to sign up for a tablet data plan with it (logically, that’s a huge yes). If you think it’s worth it for a decent tablet to use for web browsing, then why not? What do you think? Is $350 off a tablet a good deal?
