T-Mobile tablets at Walmart start low-end connected push

There’s little doubt that Walmart is the place where the least expensive electronics thrive. T-Mobile USA knows this, and Walmart is more than prepared to take on T-Mobile’s “Un-leash” initiative with a couple of lower-end tablets. Both devices being reveal this week are amongst the first cellular-connected tablets available at the outlet.

The first of two tablets headed to Walmart is the Trio AXS 3G Quad Core. This tablet will be outed starting this week at a cool $179 USD, delivering Android with a 7.85-inch display, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, and 16GB on-device storage.


The other tablet being delivered today is the HP Slate 7 HD. This is another Android-enabled tablet with a Marvell dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 16GB internal storage, and a 7-inch 1280 x 800 display. This device also comes with Beats Audio through its headphones jack.

The HP tablet will come in June for $229 USD. Both tablets are being sold for their prices off-contract, while Walmart customers will have “exclusive” access to T-Mobile high-speed data passes. This includes $35 USD for 3.5GB of high-speed data or $50 for 5GB of high-speed data.
