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.

I am a university Lecturer and researcher in English writing, but I like to keep myself busy. Between weightlifting, MMA, and SCUBA diving, one of my life-long interests has always been computers. I used Macs until about 17 years ago when I switched to PCs because of an interest in games, but I'm still interested in top quality laptops that push the design envelope.
