Verizon and Google charge about $350 for a contract-free Google Nexus 7 tablet with 32GB of storage, 4G LTE, and support for Verizon’s network. But if you sign up for a 2-year service plan with Verizon, you can get one for $50 up front.
Sure, that locks you into a contract that won’t expire until Google releases another tablet or two. But if you don’t plan to upgrade in the next few years and plan to pay for service anyway, it’s not the worst deal for an on-contract tablet I’ve ever seen.
