French manufacturer Alcatel announced its first Windows-based tablet, the Alcatel Plus 10, an Atom-powered hybrid Tablet PC with 4G connectivity.
Alcatel presented its first Tablet PC at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcellona, Spain. The French smartphone manufacturer brings to the fair the new Alcatel Plus 10, that will be available in June.
Based on a Intel Atom x5-Z8350 “Cherry Trail” processor, the new 10-inch device is a small hybrid with pretty common specifications: alongside the Atom CPU there will be 2 GB of DDR3L RAM and a 32 GB eMMC; the fixed-angle IPS screen comes with a passive-capacitive digitizer and it is docked in a keyboard similar to the one offered with the Lenovo Miix 3.
The keyboard is the main feature of this small device, since it is pretty particular: inside of it there is a secondary battery but also a 4G/LTE modem/router that can served as WiFi hotspot for up to 15 users.
