Vodafone adds contract-free tablet plans


Vodafone's adopting its decoupled mobile phone system to the way it offers tablets to consumers.

It's a busy week at Vodafone Australia HQ it seems. Fresh off dropping 24-month Vodafone NBN plans, it's also announced that it's "simplifying" its tablet plans along the same lines as its current mobile phone deals.

Vodafone differs from its carrier network competitors by quite explicitly separating out the contract for your handset from your Vodafone postpaid plan, and allowing consumers to pay off the handset over 12, 24 or 36 months. You've still got to maintain a Vodafone postpaid mobile plan over that time or cancel and pay out the remainder of the handset cost in the next payment.

The same rules apply to its suite of tablet offerings, which are paired with Vodafone's mobile broadband SIM-only plans at a range of price points. There's also a wide swathe of tablets on offer, from the decidedly premium Apple iPad Pro 10.5 or Samsung Galaxy Book 12.0 4G to the more affordable but lower-scale Alcatel PLUS 12 or Huawei MediaPad T3.

The cost of the associated SIM-only plan would bump up the total price over your chosen contract term relative to the outright price of each tablet, but naturally you're getting a mobile data allowance to go along with it, ranging from 3GB up to 90GB per month.
