    Sad part is that post says nothing. Stay tuned could mean next week or next year. What a cop out.

    I have asked repeatedly about the alleged tablet. Here's the consistent answers.
    This year, maybe.
    Made by VeiwSonic, like the gtab at office depot. I mention the ANyData one in the article above and I get blank stares.
    It will be wi-fi only. They think they can bundle it with the wifi hotspot and sell them that way. There are no plans for a 3G tablet.

    I recommend not holding your breath.

    Yeah, I don't really believe everything that is said on Cricket's Facebook. They said an update is coming to the Huawei Ascend. We haven't seen that yet.

    I'm glad you've asked about it. According to one of the PC Mag articles it was supposed to be bundled with the hotspot like you mentioned, and then there was supposed to be one with built-in 3G. I wonder what happened to that.

    Why is information released if it's not certain that it is going to happen? I don't think Cricket should get people excited over things that might not happen. And, let's say Cricket didn't say anything, how did PC Mag get the information then?

    Thanks!

    Rumors get started in all kinds of places, even tech mags. People aren't supposed to talk about new stuff but we're all human right?
    I agree with you though. I wish they'd shut up and quit teasing us. Tell us when it's real.

    I wonder if I could buy one of those cheap tablets from
    mcbub.com - Cheap Deals, Buy wholesale Electronics, Buy Cheap Wholesale Products From China


    and plug in the Huawei USB to get Internet.

    Then again, I'm not paying another $50/month bill just for a new toy.

    I wouldn't pay that for a tablet. Especially after I saw some good ones online for less than $150.

    I agree with you there. Tablets are really coming down in price! It won't be too long until you can go into walmart and get a tablet for $150
