Which Would You Prefer to See on Sprint’s LTE, iPad or Nexus Tablet?

Posted In Featured, Polls - By Mark Hearn On Saturday, March 17th, 2012 11:04am PST With 10 Comments

Throughout the great smartphone boom, Sprint has managed to crank out some decent handsets. But when it comes to recent tablet boom, many are saying that they’ve missed their mark. After inking an agreement with Apple, many believed that Sprint’s dry run to the tablet well would come to an end and that they would eventually release a network connected iPad. But here we are one day removed from Apple’s third-gen iPad’s retail release and the only iOS devices on Sprint’s roster are two smartphones.

It appeared that Sprint received the Rudolph the red nosed reindeer treatment due to a missing LTE network. However, shortly after Apple’s announcement a major retailer’s inventory had an interesting listing and the speculation sparks began to fly. While things were busy getting electric on the iPad rumor front, whispers of Apple’s crosstown rival cutting its teeth in the tablet game started to gain momentum.

The going word is that Google will be hooking up with ASUS to finally bring a long awaited tablet to their Nexus product line. Though details remain sketchy about this unofficial slate, multiple sources have corroborated that this device will have a 7-inch display,  competitive price point (possibly $150) and maybe a Snapdragon chip running the show.

Taking these pairs of what ifs into consideration, we’d like to know which tablet you would like to see paired with Sprint’s brand new LTE. Of course there’s no certainty that either device will find its way to Sprint’s lineup, but it’s not too far fetched to imagine them trying to partner up with one of these two colossal companies in hopes of finding the secret sauce for selling a successful network connected tablet. Be sure to cast your vote and let us know which tablet you’d like see cruising Sprint’s LTE.

His love affair with the Now Network started with the release of the Treo 600 back in 2004 and has been going strong ever since. Highly opinionated and somewhat eccentric he shares his ramblings about his network of choice here at SprintFeed.

  • Felix619

    i wouldnt get an iphone, instead a android phone, with that said, ill perfer to grab iPad, have a lil something of everything, ;)

  • Oversight68

    Neither. I have zero interest in buying a tablet that requires an additional data plan. If I were to buy a tablet, I would take a Wi-Fi iteration of the Nexus tablet.

    If the $150 price point is true on the Nexus tablet would it be free on contact with the subsidy?

    same here too.ANDROID is the shiznit!!!!PERIOD!!!!

  • Cocoman135

    Probably the Wi-Fi only model the one with radios in it would be about twice the price (150ish dollars more than the base (Like with the ipad (cellular models cost 129 more than the no cellular))) so you would probably endup paying $100ish to .99¢ if sprint decided to subsidy you
    the WiFi model will always be cheaper.
    it would be awsome if sprint gave a subsidy on the tablet for only a 6mo contract

  • Cocoman135

    yea but what if the tablet for 150 had the OPTION to pop in a sim or send sprint its meid and could connect if you wated to? cost around 200-250 for one with cellular radios? no contracts. would you not but then? so when sprint did come out with their LTE where you live THEN start paying for data?
    Jus Sayin Whole Lot Cheaper Than Cellular iPad

    Neither! I want an Asus PadPhone!

    iPad. I personally would prefer owning a nexus tablet but I see no need to use 3G/4G with it. wifi is fine. plus iPads will bring in more customers. more customers=more money for LTE rollouts and maybe a Metro PCS purchase.
