At the beginning of the month, T-Mobile announced its Uncarrier 3.0 initiative, expanding on its bold, industry-changing uncarrier strategy by adding unlimited global roaming to its existing plans. Now it looks that T-Mobile has a bit more in store for us and is ready to reveal the rest of their plans tomorrow, October 23rd.
According to T-Mobile’s official press release, part two of “Uncarrier 3.0” is about unleashing your tablet in a “disruptive Un-carrier way” (T-Mobile’s words). What exactly does that mean? While we can’t say for sure, we can take some guesses.
First, it’s possible that T-Mobile is getting ready to change up its existing tablet data plans which currently start at 500MB for $20 a month and max out at $70 for 10.5GB. This could mean they are lowering the prices or even offering unlimited data for one low price.
Some other possibilities include adding tablets to the JUMP program, or perhaps adding some form of tablet trade-in program like they already offer with phones. As crazy as it sounds, perhaps T-Mobile might even include something like X amount of months of free mobile data with a T-Mobile tablet purchase (just a thought).
Whatever it is, we imagine it will be big. It’s also very likely it will be a combination of several new announcements that together equal an industry-changing approach to tablets.
If you’re interested in attending the conference, you can – as it will be online and live via Twitter! The event will take place at 9AM PT and John Legere and Mike Sievert will even answer your questions live. You can send your questions to @Tmobile with the hashtag #unleashthetablet, or you can text them by sending them to 313131 and typing TMUSQA.
So what do you think T-Mobile has up its sleeves? Have you been impressed by T-Mobile’s uncarrier phases so far or not?
