Currently supported tablets include the Nexus 7, Nexus 9, id Air 2, id mini 4, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S. In a roundabout way, this marks the first support for ‘s MVNO carrier experiment on an Apple device. added that the data-only SIMs may also work with with devices that aren’t on the list. So, if your tablet is cellular-enabled, you’re already a oject Fi customer, you can order a data-only SIM card for free try it out for yourself. The same works for any other smartphone that isn’t a Nexus device, though you won’t be able to make calls texts on the cellular network.
