att trek hd

AT&T today announced their very first own-branded Android tablet. It’s called the AT&T Trek HD, a 4G LTE tablet with an 8-inch HD display. It’s positioned as an affordable option for those who require a tablet but don’t have the funds for something on the high-end. Here’s a quick highlight of some of the other specs you’ll care about:

  • Camera: 5 megapixel auto focus rear facing camera and 2 megapixel front facing camera
  • Operating System: Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Processor: 1.6 GHz Quad-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon 400
  • Battery: 4060 mAh Lithium Ion battery for up to 8 hours3 of power
  • Storage: 16 GB (microSD up to 32 GB sold separately)
  • Weight: 12 ounces

The tablet is just $50 on-contract, or $10 per month for 20 months if you grab it through AT&T’s tablet installment program. That figures to be about $200 if you were to buy this thing with no commitments.

Not a bad deal, though for $200 we’d just as soon use something like the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with your AT&T phone’s hotspot feature. The tablet will be available tomorrow online, and will head to store shelves starting May 15th.

To add to that news, AT&T has announced that folks on their $45 and $60 GoPhone plans will now get Rollover Data at no extra cost. Rollover Data works as Rollover Minutes did years ago — the data you don’t use is available for you to use next month. It’s not quite as good as T-Mobile’s Data Stash as the rollover data expires after 1 month, but at no added cost it’s better than nothing.
