The company sent out a promo code to customers who signed up recently, but it’s leaked into the wilds of the internet. Here’s how it works. You call T-Mobile to order the tablet and use the promo code GSLATE100. That knocks the price down to $429.99.
Here’s the catch: You need to have an existing T-Mobile voice plan or sign up for a new one. You’ll also need to sign a contract for a 2-year data plan for the tablet. The promo offer is good through April 27th — assuming T-Mobile doesn’t decide to end the deal early now that it’s leaked to the public.
If you want a month-to-month contract or don’t need the mobile broadband at all, the T-Mobile G-Slate will set you back $729.99.
The tablet features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, Google Android 3.0, and front and rear cameras including two 5MP cameras on the back for recording 3D video.
