Normally you would hear Alcatel announcing smartphones, but at this year’s Mobile World Congress, the company is announcing a one a kind Windows 10 detachable PC–PLUS 12.
The Alcatel Plus 12, offers blazing fast 4G/Wi-Fi connectivity for a complete mobile office experience. It features a modern, sleek metal design and a crisp 12-inch full HD display great for creating documents, spreadsheets and presentations with colleagues or while on the go.
As a leading device manufacturer for connected tablets, we are convinced that productive devices will be more and more connected to cellular networks. Alcatel has developed the PLUS range, a series of high-performing connected Windows 10 2-in-1s with 4G LTE inside, so you’ll always be connected and productive wherever you go. PLUS 12 is the latest addition to the PLUS family. With a larger screen, it delivers a great user experience. It’s also super lightweight and looks fantastic,” said Vittorio Di Mauro, Senior-Vice President at Alcatel. “With the PLUS 12, Alcatel has created the perfect office on the go.
For high-quality Skype calls, it has a 5MP front camera, loud dual speakers, and a digital microphone.
What’s more, PLUS 12’s innovative detachable 4G LTE keyboard serves as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 15 devices.
“2 in 1 devices continue to offer tremendous versatility while on-the-go, offering flexibility to people move between different modes to view, create and engage with their device,” said Weng Kuan Tan, Intel Corporate Vice President and General Manager Client Computing Group, China. “The PLUS 12, which is built on Intel Turnkey Solution, also takes advantage of the new Intel® Celeron N3350, which brings great performance to a mobile device at great value.”
It also supports Windows 10 innovation like Windows Hello fingerprint recognition for fast and secure password-free sign-in and the new Windows Ink digital note taking feature. And of course, your most personal digital assistant, Cortana is there for you to help you find things, complete tasks, set reminders and work more productively.
On the connectivity front, PLUS 12 has multiple ports including USB-C, USB-A, micro-HDMI and audio jack.
So, what makes the PLUS 12 stand out from the crowd, it is the weight. PLUS 12 is one of the lightest 12-inch 2-in-1s on the market, weighing in at just 990 grams, making it very convenient to carry.
