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.

Price wise users are looking at $49.99 on a two-year contract or $10 per-month on the 20 month tablet Next agreement. As with any tablet, you can toss it on to your Mobile Share Plan for $10 a month. The tablet officially goes live at AT&T on May 12th. Be on the look out for it online and in retail locations.

“The 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, 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.” – Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Device Marketing and Developer Services, AT&T Mobility.

    While this tablet didn’t make a huge impact on the market, I was a partial fan of this idea. Having it sold by the carrier like AT&T means that it can have LTE while still being a fairly cheap tablet. I wouldn’t mind seeing more of these.
