T-Mobile adds the Alcatel 3T 8 budget slate to the portfolio
T-Mobile customers looking for an affordable Android slate for media streaming — and maybe some games for the kids as well — can grab the US$150 Alcatel 3T 8, but some might want to go with the other payment choice that involves US$6 down and 24 monthly payments of US$6 each.
The Alcatel 3T 8 runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and has rather modest specs and features: an unspecified 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of memory, an unknown amount of internal storage — probably 16 GB, support for fast streaming via T-Mobile's 600 MHz Extended Range LTE, 5 MP cameras on both sides, as well as a 4,080 mAh battery that can provide up to 8.5 hours of streaming over WiFi and 7 hours on 4G LTE.
In addition to the above, we should also mention the Eye Care mode that reduces the amount of blue light generated by the display and can help protect your kid's eyes. However, this slate does not feature a rugged design so you might not want this one for young children who often drop gadgets by mistake or just to test their resistance to impact.
