Gifts for the last minute shoppers

For those of you who waited until today before venturing out to finish or start your holiday shopping, stop by your local AT&T store for some ideas and purchases. Besides having some good deals on tablets and phones, AT&T will have some accessories to help the tech-enthused and average smartphone user.

If you are looking for a tablet and a phone, customers can receive a free 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, or Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The free tablet requires a two-year agreement or AT&T Next installment agreement.

Customers can also receive a minimum of $100 on a promotion card when they trade in any eligible smartphone and buy a new smartphone with AT&T Next. The card can be used to purchase a connected tablet, accessory, or even make a payment on your wireless service bill.

Shop locally for holiday technology

If you are still looking for that technology gift for someone close, there are still many devices out there worth considering. Whether you are considering a tablet, Bluetooth audio device, battery backup, or online service, there are still opportunities to find products in stores. With Christmas coming on Tuesday, you will have the weekend to hunt for your devices locally.

The iPad mini is a very worthy device for those looking to read, play games, and browse the web on a tablet. The iPad mini feels fairly snappy. Simple games such as Angry Birds or Tiny Wings did not miss a beat. Each app loaded as quickly as you would expect form an iPad. Browsing the web was just as fluid as on an iPhone or previous iPads. Using the multi-touch gestures to swipe through apps and close them felt comfortable and quick. The iPad mini can be found at numerous retail locations besides the Apple Store.
