No answers here, but a suggestion. I doubt you're going to get any real deals from them on a tablet, as a tablet would only add $10 to the cost of your shared plan if I remember right (I didn't go to the site to check just now, I'm going from memory, and could be wrong), so they're not going to recoup a whole lot... I could be wrong, but that's just my thought on the subject. I'd watch for a deal on amazon or at Fry's or Tiger Direct - someplace like those. Use the tethering in your phone instead of adding the cost and battery drain of a LTE radio to your tablet, and the cost of adding it to your plan.
Just a thought.
I think that is the best I can do, tether or creat a hot spot from the cell phone. It looks like AT&T has 4G locked up on Windows 8 for the time being. The Samsung Pro ATIV Smart PC is currently back order everywhere so it is wait and see.
There is also another option if you must be connected to your wireless. Purchase a USB modem for your tablet. VZN has 4 listed on the site, all 4G. It is $10 per month for access. If you decide to go this route, make sure the tablet you purchase has a USB port.
I have ordered a Win8 tablet, and just plan to use my Trophy as a hot spot. Unless I decide I need to connect faster (the Trophy is 3G).
Until Verizon and Microsoft strike a deal, you get a cheap Android Tablet on Ebay,
and wifi off the Android Tablet with your Windows 8 tablet until then.
That is what I do, It still looks like for the next decade, we will not be able to dump our Windows
computers. LOL. The new Samsung Windows Tablet looks pretty good today at Office Depot.
I have the Samsung Android 7" i800 which works pretty well too.
Next suggestion is to get SplashTop app for your android tablet and devices.
I am using this which basically turns your Android Tablet into a Windows computer.
This is sweet. I love it. You can run any microsoft right there on your android phone and tablet.
Why not just use a Surface RT? I've been using it tethered to my Thunderbolt and it works wonderfully for everything I need it to do (Hulu, Netflx, website surfing, games, work, etc).
Not sure when or if Verizon will ever offer a W8 device, but
don't wait for them. You can find several tablets with GOBI that will allow you
to setup broadband with Verizon. The Fujitsu Q550 for example.
