Alcatel A30 Tablet arriving at T-Mobile on May 12 with 8-inch display, Android Nougat


T-Mobile has been home to several Alcatel devices in the past, and tomorrow one more will be hitting T-Mo’s shelves.

The Alcatel A30 Tablet is launching at T-Mobile on May 12 at a price of $5 down and $5 per month for 24 months, or $125 total. In exchange for your hard-earned dollars, you’ll get an Android 7.1 Nougat tablet with an 8-inch 1280×800 display as well as 5-megapixel cameras on its front and rear.

Inside the Alcatel A30 Tablet is a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, a microSD slot, and a 4060mAh battery. 4G LTE connectivity is included, too.

Alcatel is also touting the A30 Tablet’s CloserTV and IR blaster. These two features combine to pair with your TV or set-top box so that you can change the channel with your tablet, and there’s also a commercial skipping feature that’ll change your channel during commercial breaks.

We’ve seen a few different affordable Alcatel tablets launch at T-Mobile in recent years, like the Pop 7 LTE and Pixi 7, and the A30 Tablet is the latest in that line of products. It’s not the most high-end device around, but it does have Nougat, built-in LTE, and a $125 price tag, so it’s an option for anyone in the market for a budget tablet.

    Hmmm, this might work as my in-car infotainment system. I wonder if I can mount it horizontally and split-screen Waze and Google Play Music.

      with a snapdragon 210 it might just crash trying to split screen

      • Bryan Pizzuti

        Considering I don’t need it to run ANYTHING else, it might be able to handle it. We’re talking no mail, no FB, no messenger, no calendar, I’ll strip it down to the barest necessities. For $125, it’s cheap enough to give it a try.

          Might want to consider spending a bit more for the LG 8 tablet. It uses the 615 or 617 SOC if I recall. I have it and it is a very usable device. It also got upgraded to nougat about 3 months ago, and has been receiving the monthly security patches with very little delays.

          You might also be able to get it as a freebie, as I did during the black/magenta Friday promo.

          Thanks for the tip, I just found a used one for under $100 :)

    Make this, or the 7″er, a phablet… with removable battery + NFC… and I’ll jump on it, overlooking the remaining missing / inferior specs.

    • Chris Drudge

      The Nexus 7 2013 has nearly the same specs and while it doesn’t have a trivially simple battery removal process, it’s not hard to replace it should the battery performance degrades over time. I rather have a 4 year old Google Nexus 7 tablet than a brand new tablet with those 4 year old specs even if it costs $125.

      • riverhorse

        I agree. Half a decade later specs haven’t really improved.
        Still hoping for some kinda successor, even if @ different line.

    I’m not sure about adult use but I’ve had both the pop7 and pixi7 for my children and they are good devices. Educational apps. Netflix,Hulu and tango all work well on them…I might “upgrade” them lol give them an extra inch

    • Prode

      I wouldn’t buy that crap for my own mom.

      • neice

        What does buying it for an old lady have to do with buying it for children? You wouldn’t buy her a hot wheels car or American girl doll either (I’m guessing) but those are also good buys for children! So once again your point

        • Prode

          Not sure you know what I mean. I am saying that the tablet is crap and I wouldn’t want give that kind of junk to my own mom. Not sure what hot wheel cars and American girl dolls have to do with it.

        • neice

          The correlation between the children’s toys and this tablet are obvious,to most! They are all good buys for children, what you would or wouldn’t purchase for your mother isn’t relevant to my original comment and neither is your opinion of the quality of this tablet. I won’t respond to anymore troll like comments from you so if you like corresponding with yourself feel free to do so!
