    Verizon No Longer Subsidizing Android Tablet Prices

    Verizon has stopped selling Android tablets at subsidized prices, and now only offers them at full retail pricing. Previously Verizon would offer subsidized prices when signing a data plan contract, but with the new share everything plans rolling out, Verizon is selling their tablets at full retail. With the new data plans, you can add a tablet to your shared plan without having to sign a new contract for that device. Keep in mind there is still a monthly line access fee. Although the policy change will cost consumers more upfront, in the long run, only having the monthly line access fee rather than a separate full data plan is cheaper. Let us know what you think in the forums.

    About time at least some of these subsidies end. They're only a subterfuge that costs more money to the consumer.

    Good job Verizon.
    If we all agree on it, it must be true.[citation needed​]
