T-Mobile confirmed today that it will officially start accepting preorders for Apple’s new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 tomorrow. The announcement follows preorders through Apple, AT&T and others kicking off late last week and an announcement from Sprint yesterday that it will begin selling the devices this week.

The device through T-Mobile, unlike iPads sold direct from Apple retailers, will of course be available through T-Mobile’s financing options for Simple Choice plan customers starting at $0 down for both tablets.

$0 down with monthly payments (approx. $26 for iPad Air 2 and $22 for iPad mini 3) is for the 16GB entry level models, while the 64GB model will be available for $99 down and the 128GB models for $199 down.

For qualified customers with a Simple Choice plan from T-Mobile, the iPad Air 2 (16GB) will be available for $0 down, with 24 monthly payments of $26.24 per month; the iPad mini 3 (16GB) will be available for $0 down, with 24 monthly payments of $22.08 per month.

Of course you’ll have to add the tablet to a Simple Choice plan, which will run you $10 a month and get you up to 5GB of data depending on your plan.

Preorders kick off tomorrow but T-Mobile said the tablets will be available to purchase in stores and online within a week. Apple is expected to start shipping initial preorders this week.
