TCL has announced an inexpensive 2-in-1 convertible Windows tablet called the Plus 12. Unique for a budget Windows tablet, the Plus 12 includes an LTE modem in its keyboard, as well as a fingerprint sensor.

The "Mobile" part of Mobile World Congress doesn't just mean phones—Windows PCs can be mobile as well, as Chinese device maker TCL shows with it's LTE-enabled 2-in-1 convertible Windows Tablet, the Alcatel Plus 12.

The Alcatel Plus 12 won't be giving Microsoft's Surface line a run with its specs, but instead it's very much about giving the user enough power for daily tasks on the go while remaining very affordable. The Plus 12 sports a 12.6-inch FHD display, backed up by a Celeron N3350 Apollo Lake CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a paltry 32GB eMMC storage. It does have an a microSD slot (and even comes with a 32GB card) to augment that storage capacity, thankfully.

Where the Plus 12 is a bit unique is in regard to its keyboard base, which is where you will find the Qualcomm LTE radio and a bit more juice. The main tablet has a 6900mAh battery embedded, but the keyboard also has its own 2580mAh cell to help power the LTE radio. Other extras not usually seen in an inexpensive 2-in-1 are the Plus 12's fingerprint scanner.

Pricing and availability are not yet available, but it is expected to target the low end of the market.
