Two Android-powered tablets join the iPad 4G on EE.
This day last week, UK carrier Everything Everywhere announced that it finally had the iPad 4G in stock. Now, one week later, the company is adding another 4G tablet to its portfolio. The company today announced the launch of the Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE. Of course, it doesn't come free. Pricing for the tablet on a two year contract will see customers paying between £100 and £250 for the tablet, depending on the plan they choose. A 3GB per month data plan will set you back £25.99 each month along with an up front payment of £249.99. Upping that allowance to 5GB per month will mean a £30.99 monthly contract and a one-time payment of £199.99. The top level plan, which offers 8GB of data per month, costs £35.99 each month and will require an up-front payment of £99.99.
In addition to the Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE, EE is also getting the the Nexus 7 in stock. The company will bundle it with the Huawei E589 dongle, meaning anyone buying it will also be signing a contract. Again, you're looking at a two-year sentence commitment, with monthly plans ranging from £26, £31, and £36 (3GB, 5GB and 8GB, respectively). Pricing for the device is either a one-time payment of £50 for those on the 3GB plan or a one-time payment of £30 for anyone on the 5GB or 8GB plans.
"We're pleased to be announcing our first Android tablets on the EE brand just in time for Christmas," said Paul Jevons, Director of Products and Devices, EE. "With these new devices, we’re extending the possibilities of what 4G has to offer to an even wider range of users, so they can work or play with greater freedom than ever before."
EE is the UK's first 4G network and launched back in October.
