*UPDATE* POP 7 LTE Tablet from Alcatel - Available at Bell, Virgin and Telus

While the launch on September 30th focused on the IDOL 4, Alcatel also had another interesting piece of hardware that hit the shelves at Bell & Virgin. The POP 7 LTE is a 7-inch tablet that aims to cover a piece of the market that was left a bit empty. ** You can now get your hands on this tablet at Telus **

I haven't the pleasure of playing with the Tablet as much I would have liked to, however, I'll be going over the specification and will talk about it.

*** This is the Snapdragon 210 from Qualcomm.

Stylishly designed and value packed, the Alcatel POP™7 LTE tablet is the perfect amount of entertainment , so you can take the fun with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy a better viewing experience, with a spacious 7-inch display and narrow border that allows you to maximise the touchscreen, with more visibility for reading, watching videos, and playing games.

Smooth corners and a thin profile on the POP 7 LTE allow for comfortable portability to carry wherever you go.

Spend less time running for the charger and more time getting things done thanks to a robust 3240mAh battery.

Stream media with ease, upload or download content quickly, and message friends and family with LTE data speeds.

  • Big, Compact Display - 7-inch display in a light, compact design for the perfect amount of on-the-go entertainment 
  • A Battery that Works Smart – The 3240mAh battery supported by Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s Doze and App Standby saves your battery life for what you need most
  • Dependable Cameras – 5MP main and 2MP front camera for clear photos and video chatting
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow – Improved user experience and new additions like Google Now on Tap, multiple users and case by case app permissions

But what is it going to cost you? If you want it outright, it's going to cost you $149,99. You can opt to get it by doing monthly instalment of $6.25 over a 2-year period. This is definitely a budget tablet, it's not going to be for the high-end of the gamers.

Interested? Head on over to Bell or Virgin. For the purpose of this article, I'll provide the Bell URL.
