AT&T Brings LTE Jetstream Tablet In For Astonishingly High Price
That's monumentally expensive. In reality, most consumers won't pay attention to the cutting-edge CPU nor the LTE radio. They'll take one look at the price, and move on. AT&T also sells Apple's 3G iPad, which is far, far less expensive and is sold without a 2-year chain to AT&T. How do you convince people to buy Android tablets over the default iPad? Not by charging hundreds more.
On September 4, the tablet will be available exclusively to AT&T customers online and in company-owned retail stores, and AT&T postpaid tablet customers now have a new $35, 3 GB monthly data plan option with a two-year contract. Customers who do not choose a long-term commitment may still select one of two existing monthly billing options:
- Postpaid: $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB. Customers on the 2 GB plan who exceed their monthly data allotment will be charged $10 per 1 GB of overage. Charges will appear on customers’ monthly wireless statements.
- Prepaid: $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB. Customers on the 2 GB plan who exceed their monthly data allotment may choose to purchase an additional 2 GB for $25. Charges will appear on customers’ credit card statements.
