MWC won’t officially open till Monday but manufacturers have begun announcing new products tonight. Alcatel has announced two new tablets – the Alcatel 1T 7 and Alcatel 1T 10. As you can tell from their names, the new tablets comes in 7” and 10” variants and come pre-loaded with contents for kids.
The 7” variant of the Alcatel 1T has a 1024 x 600 display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage. A MicroSD card slot is also available for adding extra storage. The 10” variant has a 1280 x 800 resolution, also 1GB of RAM but storage has been doubled to 16GB.
MediaTek’s MT8321 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz is the chipset powering both variants of the device. There are 2MP rear cameras (without flash) on both variants but the 7” variant has a VGA front camera and the 10” variant has a 2MP front camera. Don’t expect any of them to take stellar pictures.
The 7” Alcatel 1T packs a 2580mAh battery which is said to offer up to 7 hours of use while the 10” model has a larger 4000mAh battery with 8 hours of screen-on time. Surprisingly, both variants run Android 8.1 Oreo.
The tablets come with what Alcatel calls Eye Care mode for reducing blue light. There are also pre-installed kids games, camera app, and a parental control panel for setting usage limits
Alcatel will sell the 1T for €70 and €100 depending on the screen size. Alcatel is also offering an optional Bluetooth keyboard for the 10” variant. They will be available in Premium Black and Bluish Black and will launch in the second quarter in Asia, Latin America and Europe.
