    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.
