They say phone contracts are dead -- so how about a tablet contract instead?
That's the catch with AT&T's new Trek 2 HD tablet. You can walk out the door with the tablet for 99 cents beginning August 5, but you'll need to sign a 2-year service agreement or pay $7.50 a month (for a total commitment of $180, not including data service).
The 8-inch Android tablet is the successor to 2015's Trek HD, and has everything you'd expect in a middle-of-the-road budget tablet. Before you sign up, though, compare it to something like the $250 Asus ZenPad Z8 (which also offers 4G LTE, sans contract), as well as our other favorite budget slates.
The Trek 2 HD's full specs are as follows:
- 8.0-inch HD Display
- Stereo speakers with Dolby audio
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow Software
- 5-megapixel rear camera
- 5-megapixel front camera
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5GHz octa-core processor
- 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for expansion
- 4,600mAh battery
