MWC 2017 | TCL releases 2-in-1 Windows tablet with 4G LTE
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.
