AT&T expects tablets, including the new iPad Mini, to contribute big in Q4, as smartphones dominate in Q3, and 4G LTE build-outs continue to expand.
AT&T believes tablets will boost its fourth quarter as it looks ahead to the Apple iPad Mini, along with new Windows and Amazon devices.
"We anticipate a higher number of net adds from tablets in the fourth quarter," AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega said on the operator's third-quarter earnings call Wednesday.
"We'll have a full lineup of tablets," the CEO said, later referencing support for Apple and Android devices, as well Windows 8, AsusTek Computer, and Samsung tablets, and exclusive launches of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 4G LTE.
