Beginning of greater tablet support

Free voice, texting, and data service provider FreedomPop is extending its plans to tablets, starting with the Apple iPad mini and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, according to an announcement. In the case of Minis, subscribers will be given mic-equipped Apple headphones and a special app, allowing them to make calls through FreedomPop's VoIP platform. Each person will have a unique phone number, and associated features such as voicemail and the ability to port that number to a different device or carrier.

As with its phone plans, tablet owners will have access to 500MB of 4G data, 200 voice minutes, and 500 texts. Subscribers can either bring their own tablet or buy one from FreedomPop; the Galaxy Tab 3 is $199, and a refurbished, cellular-equipped, non-Retina Mini is $319. Apple normally sells the same hardware for $429.

FreedomPop's service operates over the Sprint network. As for Apple, it says it is "engaging" with the company.
