On Monday, AT&T unveiled its first branded tablet and its first tablet to run Android Lollipop: the AT&T Trek HD.
Available online from May 12th and in stores from May 15th, the AT&T tablet features an 8 inch display with a 1,280 x 800 resolution and is powered by a 1.6 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. The Trek HD features two cameras - a 5 megapixel rear camera with auto focus and a 2 megapixel front-facing shooter - as well as a 4060 mAh Lithium Ion battery for up to 8 hours of use on a single charge. The tablet packs 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of in-built storage which is expandable up to 32 GB via microSD. The AT&T Trek HD features a Multi-User setting for multiple accounts and has a starting price of $49.99 with a two-year agreement or $10 per month for 20 months with the AT&T Tablet Installment plan. The Trek HD can be added to any new or existing Mobile Share Value plan for $10 per month.
"The Trek HD is a big step forward for AT&T in terms of developing affordable products with premium features," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of Device Marketing and Developer Services at AT&T. "Not only is this our first AT&T branded tablet, it's the first tablet in our entire portfolio with Lollipop already installed, so when you buy the Trek HD you're getting the most advanced Android operating system at a great value - on the network with the nation's strongest 4G LTE signal."
