Target and T-Mobile have joined forces in the Brightspot program that will bring the carrier's mobile plans right into the heart of the retailer's mobile departments. The exact details of this arrangement are still unknown, but Target has released enough information to give us an idea of how it will look like.
T-Mobile began rolling out their “UnCarrier” approach to mobile, part of that plan was unsubsidized devices. In moving their company stores away from subsidized plans, they let the third party stores continue to offer devices with contracts. WalMart, Target, Costco -- all offering subsidized devices when T-Mobile didn’t.
Kindle products will now be in less brick-and-mortar stores starting today. In a move that would oust retail competitors like Amazon from their stores, Wal-mart has stopped selling all Amazon Kindle ereaders and tablets. No longer will you be able to try out Amazon's offerings of slates at one of the largest retail stores in the US.
Target $299 offering, a deal is a deal and worth a quick note right. If you've been debating a new Android Honeycomb tablet and had your eye on the low priced Acer, now would be a good time to snatch one up.
review here. The Thrill 4G was supposed to launch on August 7th over at RadioShack and was even advertized by AT&T for $99 coming early August.
fatwallet and Target is offering the Acer Iconia A500 Android Honeycomb tablet for just $399 and it comes with a free $100 gift card. So while it's not technically $299 you save $100 because you then get to go on a little Target shopping spree with that gift card. I'd be heading to the graphic T-shirt isle right away myself.
The Shack had offered up its deals for the Evo 3D smartphone that will launch on the 24th of the month. Target Mobile has now come out with its own offer for the Evo 3D and it may be better than the deal at The Shack for some users. Target does note that the Evo 3D is coming to select Target Mobile locations. I'm not sure why it wouldn't put the smartphone in all stores that sell mobiles. Pre-orders can be made at those select mobile locations starting today.
