Alcatel 3T 8 delivers a lightweight, high-performing and family-friendly tablet
As demand grows for tablets that are compatible with keyboards and family use, TCL Communication is providing a tablet that can pull double duty with Alcatel 3T 8. A versatile lightweight device, it can be paired with a Bluetooth keyboard for professional use or a child-friendly bumper case for time with family. Alcatel 3T 8 is one of the most affordable tablets on the market while offering the latest features including slim design, 4G LTE connection, a powerful battery and Family Care functions. It also comes outfitted with Android™ Oreo™ (Go edition) for a faster and more efficient tablet with built-in optimization. Alcatel 3T 8 will be available in select markets beginning this month starting at €119 EUR/$138 USD.
According to market research reports, while demand for keyboard-pairable tablets has grown and tablet usage by children ages 8 and under has tripled, people who value affordability have found themselves with fewer options for tablets that address their needs available. “The need for an all-around tablet that can bridge the work-life divide while remaining in reach of everyone is clear,” said Stefan Streit, General Manager of Global Marketing at TCL Communication. “Alcatel 3T 8 takes in-demand features and puts them into a premium tablet that’s accessible to all.”
Slim Transportable Design
Designed for portability and a comfortable hold, Alcatel 3T 8 is perfectly sized for staying on the go at a lightweight 279 grams and a super slim 8.2 mm. Offered in a premium matte finishing with Metallic Black and Suede Blue colors, the tablet makes users look refined wherever they are.
Staying connected is important, whether a user is trying to email coworkers an update or stream a movie for their toddler while grocery shopping. Alcatel 3T 8’s 4G LTE connection and long-lasting 4080mAh battery ensures effortless browsing and cord-free all-day energy.
Alcatel 3T 8 can easily accompany the family on anything from after-school activities, a family vacation or weekend errands. Its Family Care functions provide comprehensive support. Kids Mode gives guardians the control to set app accessibility and usage time in a simple ad-free interface. Eye Care relieves eye strain by reducing blue light, lessening its impact on family member’s sight and sleep patterns. To further protect against drops, water and dust, users can accessorize with Alcatel’s bumper case that’s comfortable for the youngest users with child-size grips and easy-to-hold material.
Android™ Oreo™ (Go edition) Makes for a Smooth and Efficient Experience
A lightweight tablet deserves a light operating system. Alcatel 3T 8 is one of the first tablets in the market to be powered by Android™ Oreo™ (Go edition), which is optimized to help affordable tablets run Android faster, more efficiently and safer. Android™ Oreo™ (Go edition) is the ideal platform for those who want to enjoy a powerful Android experience at an affordable price.
Alcatel 3T 8 with Android™ Oreo™ (Go edition) features a set of popular Google apps that run quickly and smoothly, including Google Go, Google Maps Go, Gmail Go and more. As part of the platform, users will enjoy access to YouTube Go, which lets users download videos and view them offline when data isn’t available. The Google Play Store will also suggest third-party apps tailor-made for Go edition devices, including Facebook Lite, Skype Lite and more.
Android™ Oreo™ (Go edition) is designed to give users two times the available storage out of the box, freeing up space for users to do a lot more with the built-in 12.7GB storage on Alcatel 3T 8.
