We are seeing several affordable smartphones at this year’s MWC, but will this price shift hit tablets as well? The competition in the tablet segment isn’t as heated as with phones, bit nevertheless, Alcatel is announcing the PIXI 7, an ultra-low cost Wi-Fi only Android tablet that will retail for just $110.
Of course, you won’t get all of the bells and whistles of a high end tablet. The PIXI 7 has a 7-inch 960×540 (qHD) TFT display, a MediaTek 8117 chipset with a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and 512MB (for EMEA) or 1GB (for LATAM) of RAM memory. It has 4GB of internal storage capacity, which can be expanded up to 32GB with an external SD card.
It also has a pair of 0.3MP cameras, and a 2840mAh battery that’s good for up to four hours of browsing. It actually runs Android 4.4 KitKat though, which is a nice surprise. The tablet also has an IR port and Miracast support, which makes the it a good smart remote control and media streaming device. The Alcatel One Touch PIXI 7 will have some optional accessories in various colors and will be available in July in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
