Not really a mobile handset question but I cannot find a more appropriate section to post this in.
I'm contemplating getting a new tablet and am debating whether or not to get one with a sim card slot.
I've often thought having direct access to mobile data might be worthwhile/convenient. The more I have thought about it I have started to wonder that the sim card option may be unnecessary in my case. My reasoning is as follows;
- I don't need access to mobile data on my current tablet all that often.
- I can tether from my phone.
- A second data plan will cost extra even if it is just a data share type option, that money would be better spent on a better plan for my phone.
How may Geekzoners use a tablet with a sim card and are there any compelling reasons to have a tablet with a sim card?
I know the cost difference between a tablet with and without a sim slot isn't all that great, even if I never used the sim slot, but the money saved would buy a good case/keyboard.
