    At my local metro store and see this advertisement. The guy tells me that they are coming in soon and will be running on the same plans as the phones. Has anyone else seen this? I cant really find to much about this particular tablet i went to the website but its not very helpful. They do have a spec sheet but its part of a photo album and goes by to quickly.

  2. No doubt this is a franchise store and not a corporate one. No way Metro is going to "officially" support that thing, the store is probably just pushing it as a 4G device that happens to have the right bands to work on T-Mo/Metro.
    Anyway it looks like one of the dime-a-dozen generic cheap Chinese tablets that are out there, I'll take a wild guess and say it probably doesn't even have the real Play store on it because these often don't. Very high chances that it's a POS and I'd stay far away.

    I just Googled "Cybertec Saturn" and it returned zero results. As Fox said, it's almost certainly a cheap generic tablet.

    yeah this was the only information i could find.

    Tablets | Cybertec / Cybercell

    It just seems odd to me that they would say they are going to be using the same plans as the phones. Wouldn't they have to get some kind of permission from Tmobile to use the tablets on the network. I mean I could see a person or two using a work around but for a store to be doing it seems strange to me.
     
  5. No doubt the tablet is just as crappy as the website.
    You don't want this, trust us.

    Looks like a bootlegged IPad imitation. Don't buy it.

    Either way might be nice if you could bring an att or T-Mobile tablet And be able to use the $40 plan on it.

    There was somebody on here (maybe a different forum) that already had a tablet up and running on Metro. Well, that was what was posted at least.
