AT&T announces first self-branded tablet
AT&T has announced it is releasing its own tablet the Trek HD, which Verizon has been doing for a few years now with the Ellipses 7 and Ellipses 8. The Trek HD is meant to offer consumers premium features but at a more affordable price. With an 8 inch screen and a weight of 12 ounces, this tablet seems like a good option portability for those looking for portability. It also comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop already installed, meaning it will release with the most current version of the operating system.
Other features of the tablet include a 4060mAh Lithium Ion battery allowing for up to 8 hours of battery life, a 1.6 GHz Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, and a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and 2 megapixel front-facing camera. The storage that comes with the Trek HD is 16 GB, but users can also install up to a 32 GB microSD for storage expansion.
The Trek HD will release on Tuesday May 12th in on AT&T's own website and in AT&T stores nationwide on May 15th. Meant to be affordable, the price of the tablet is $49.99 with a two year agreement or $10 a month for 20 months with the AT&T Tablet Installment plan, and can be added to any Mobile Share plan for only $10 per month. The AT&T Trek HD seems like a good way for consumers to access to the newest Android OS without having to pay for an exceedingly expensive tablet or smartphone.
