AT&T announces its own self-branded Android tablet, the Trek HD
AT&T is preparing to launch its own tablet, the Trek HD, on May 12. It’s the companies first self-branded tablet, running Android 5.0 Lollipop.
This tablet is quite surprising, as the Trek HD came out of nowhere. There hasn’t been a peep or even a rumor of its arrival beforehand. Either way, the AT&T Trek HD will be available to purchase online come May 12, and stores nationwide on May 15.
While certainly not the most impressive tablet you’ll ever see, it is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, clocked at 1.6GHz. It features a 4060mAh battery, 16GB of internal storage, and a expandable memory option of up to 32GB, which isn’t a very attractive amount for the power user. It has a 5-megapixel shooter strapped to the back, and a 2-megapixel solution on the front.
AT&T is very excited to offer the device for $49.99 on a new two-year contract. Another option is to get the device on an installment plan for an additional $10 per month. AT&T knew you’d be excited to sign-up for a new contract on a device boasting 2013 specs. In that case, you mine as well get an older tablet that probably is a lot better in terms of quality for the same price–$10 per month and available on AT&T.
What do you think of AT&T’s sudden foray into the tablet market? Let us know in the comments.
