Sim carded tablet help please

Fella at work has a Samsung tablet(I think it's a tablet)that does everything my phone does,the layout is exactly the same.I am a complete computer idiot and can't find the tablet on line.Went to curry's and explained it but they just gave me blank looks

So anyone please help me/tell me which tablet(hopefully Samsung)that I can stick a sim card in and use data roaming.Wifi is no good,it must take a sim card for the data roaming.
Maybe it was a massive Samsung phone and not a tablet,i really have no idea and can't ask the fella as he is no longer on site.

Any pointers would be a help.

I know the Sony tablets used to have this option but they are way expensive.

Here's a budget deal half price for a Fire with two sim slots.

Samsung's latest 3G/4G tablet range linked below. You may still be able to get one of the older Galaxy Tab 3G still for a lot less although unlikely to be new?

Nice deal on a Lenovo 10 inch 4G tablet with free speaker below . Use code: PAYDAY20 to get it to £119

Possibly more useful with a mobile than a tablet but it means use can have two working sims so one can be for work and one can be your personal sim so you can switch between the two. More relevant for the tablets is when abroad you can put a second data sim in bought locally so that you can surf at local rates if you don't have any roaming agreement in that country with your own sim.

Which brings me nicely to my next question,Which pay as you go SIM is the best out there.Only need it for data/roaming and will be used in Europe as well as here.
Any suggestions

For a tablet you will be looking for a preloaded data sim rather than a standard PAYG sim that you can pick up in shops. Rather than pay per usage which works out expensive you have a set amount of data for a fixed price. You can top up after it runs out but it is cheaper to just buy another one as you don't have any of the hassle of new sim new number if you are just using it for data.

'Three' do a range of data only sims with 12Gb at around £30 and 24Gb at £40ish although Amazon occasionally knocks a tenner of those prices in flash deals. The beauty of those Three sims is that they last 1 year and 2 years respectively once activated where as others often have 30-90 day expiry periods.

He wants to use it abroad. He'd be fine with that in Europe, may have issues from November though.

I would make sure your devise is unlocked and buy a local sim when you get to where you are going, or buy a mifi box, and link with wifi to it.

12Gb covered me fine away for four weeks in January but you just have to watch the usage with data hungry apps like YouTube. If you do need to video chat or down load big files just find a McDonalds or Shopping centre that does free wifi and use theirs. I don't believe there any restrictions with Three that says you can't just buy two prepaid sims and use the second one to restart the clock once the first one is spent if you need to have more?

Just posted this on the Three thread. Assume you can use in a tablet?:

Three currently have a 24 month SIM only contract, with unlimited data, minutes, texts, and allows tethering, plus their usual Go Roam service (which is excellent) for £20 a month, reduced to £10 a month for the first 6 months.
