Default send/receive free text messages using a android tablet not connected to wi-fi

I initially wanted to buy the scratch wireless "motorola photon Q" (shown in link below) which is a type of android phone, primarily for its benefit of allowing free text messaging (sending/receiving) while not connected to wi-fi. However, I had a change of heart, while considering that I really didn't want to pay $269 for the phone, plus knowing that I may not always be connected to wi-fi. Seeing as how I already own an android tablet, is there a way to send/receive free text messages when wi-fi isn't available from a tablet? Does it have to contain 3G or 4G capabilities?

Unless you can find an iMessage like alternative for Android, it will have to have some type of radio signal. iMessage works off of Apple's servers and not your carrier's but it still has to have wifi to transmit.
