Alcatel Announce the Alcatel Plus 10 – A new 2 in 1 connected Windows 10 device

Just prior to MWC fully kicking off, Alcatel have made a couple of announcements. Firstly, they’ve changed their name. Alcatel Onetouch is no more, and they’re now just going to be called “Alcatel”. They’ve also revealed a new logo, which apparently “reflects the engagement of the brand with millennials and Gen Z”. Uh-huh…

By renaming themselves they will “democratize innovation that makes sense to consumers”. OK then.

Secondly they’ve announced a new 2 in 1 style device running Windows 10 – the Alcatel Plus 10.

Alcatel Plus 10

The Plus 10 is Alcatel’s first Windows 10 powered 2-in-1 device and features the following specification:

  • A 10.1” HD IPS display running at a resolution of 1280 x 800 with 10 point multi-touch
  • A Quad Core Intel CPU running at 1.92 GHz
  • Intel Cherry Trail T3 Z8350 Chipset
  • 5Mp & 2Mp cameras
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32 GB Storage with support for upto 64 GB additional Storage
  • Standard USB, micro USB and micro HDMI ports
  • 5830 mAh Battery in the Tablet &  2580mAh Battery in the Keyboard
  • LTE Keyboard

The keyboard includes  an interesting feature in that it can act as a WiFi hotspot for up to 15 users using the built-in LTE / 4G connection.

The lightweight 2 in 1 market is quite interesting at the moment so it will be interesting to see how the Alcatel Plus 10 compares to other devices such as the recently reviewed Linx 1010. Price will be key although that keyboard does sound interesting.

We will hopefully have a hands-on test at MWC later in the week. You’ll be able to buy this in Europe from June.
