Alcatel unveils the PLUS 10: the multimedia consumer's Windows 10 laptop-tablet hybrid
Alcatel has introduced a brand-new 2-in-1 laptop-tablet hybrid — the PLUS 10. The device runs on Windows 10 and offers flexibility in a small package, thanks to its multiple ports and detachable keyboard.
Powered by a 1.92 GHz, quad-core Intel Atom Z8350 processor and 2 GB of RAM, the PLUS 10 is aimed at the moderate consumer that needs a portable device for light work (text, spreadsheets), casual gaming, or multimedia consumption. The device has a 32 GB storage, which can be further expanded via a microSD card of up to 64 GB. The tablet half also has a 5,830 mAh battery inside it. Its cameras, should you need them, are quite modest, the main snapper having a 5 MP sensor and the front one – a 2 MP one. Movie-watchers will be happy to know it offers front-firing stereo speakers.
The tablet, by itself, only offers Wi-Fi connectivity. However, the keyboard has a 4G modem and can act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 15 devices, in case you need to set up a makeshift office with your team anywhere. It also houses an extra 2,580 mAh cell, which brings the PLUS 10's total battery capacity to 8,410 mAh – enough for 8 hours of work time, according to Alcatel.
In terms of connectors, the tablet and keyboard combined offer a Type-A USB port, two micro USB ports, an external display port, and, of course, a headphone jack.
Alcatel PLUS 10 will launch in Europe in June, 2016. There is no word on pricing or availability in other markets at this moment.
