FreedomPop now offering $89 own-brand tablet, more devices coming soon

FreedomPop Liberty

FreedomPop, the carrier known for offering free monthly voice and data plans, is now selling its own line of devices, starting with an $89 Wi-Fi only tablet. The FreedomPop Liberty is a 7-inch Android tablet with a 1.2GHz Cortex A9 processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB storage, 4-megapixel camera, 2400mAh battery and a microSD card slot to expand storage. It’s thick, chunky and definitely budget, but the FreedomPop Liberty is still a 7-inch tablet for $89. A 4G LTE model, dubbed the FreedomPop Frenzy, is coming next month for $99.

FreedomPop has also said that it plans to offer its own $89 4G LTE Android smartphone in the near future, though no further details were given on that. While these devices are clearly low-end, that’s the market that FreedomPop is targeting with its free voice and data plans. For $89, a customer could get a smartphone with a free amount of service and save a tremendous amount of money. It’s an unorthodox approach, but one that might just work.

    1.5 ghz Quad Core processor
    1 GB RAM
    HD Screen
    8 GB Storage
    Choose from 5 different colors
    All for $99.

    Just add a custom rom for stock Android and you are ready to go.

      Nope…. Your information isn’t entirely accurate.

      Amazon’s new Fire HD tablet does NOT have an actual HD screen.. the resolution is only 1280×800, which is like the minimum.

      Also, you FAILED to mention that the Amazon tablet is also smaller, at only 6″. That’s only like 1/2 an inch larger than my Note 2 Phone…

      The last thing you “forgot” to mention is… that $99 price is ONLY for the model that comes with mandatory ads that you can’t get rid of. If you choose to have the Ad-Free version of that tablet, the price will increase to $114.
