Take the iPhone 5 with your contract and get a Samsung Galaxy tab 3 for FREE!

Which Galaxy Tab 3?

One would think, selling an iPhone 5, and buying a brand new one would be better?

Why would you trade in a phone for a tablet? The phone has a contract so I assume the owner was using it for calls too.

I'm an iPhone user but I chose a Nexus 7 for my tablet. I like having both iOS and Android at my fingertips. They each have different strengths and weaknesses.

Wait, I thought it meant if you get an iPhone 5 on contract with them, you get the tablet for free. Not that you trade the former for the latter. ??

Oh, you're probably right, which makes it make sense. As an iPhone user I have an iPad but I also have a Nexus 7 which is also good. I'd happily take a free tablet. I drink Coke but I'll always accept a free Pepsi.

Well, certainly helps Samsung with their share numbers as far as how many people have their devices (when they are just given away for free to those who buy iPhones). ;)

I know of at least one bank that will give you a free Samsung Galaxy Tab when you open certain type of account, and a rival bank that gives an iPad Mini.

It would make lots of people happy. Not everyone is stuck using only Apple products.

Well he's obviously pandering to audience, isn't he? But seriously, I think it would literally make dozens of people happy. Dozens.
