Looks like the carrier branded tablet idea isn’t a dead one yet. AT&T announced this morning that they will be launching a new 7-inch tablet dubbed the Trek HD. The tablet carries a 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, a 4060 mAh battery, 16GB internal storage with expandable micro SD support, a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front facing camera. It does launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
â€œThe Trek HD is a big step forward for AT&T in terms of developing affordable products with premium features. Not only is this our first AT&T branded tablet, itâ€™s the first tablet in our entire portfolio with Lollipop already installed, so when you buy the Trek HD youâ€™re getting the most advanced Android operating system at a great value â€“ on the network with the nationâ€™s strongest 4G LTE signal.â€ â€“ Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Device Marketing and Developer Services, AT&T Mobility.
