    I ask the same question as Shawn. Since I purchased my Tablet 3 8.0, before
    July & naturally nothing was included re. a wifi source, so how can I get in on the deal?. This Boingo offer, will cost (how much) after one year?

    /// At this point, I use my Verizon Jet Pack for a portable internet wifi. This freebee however — sure would be nice!

    Point for Samsung!

    Products need add-ons like this to differentiate themselves in the market beyond specsheets. The 100gb of google drive really sold me on my chromebook.
