Alcatel Onetouch Pop 7 tablet arrives at MetroPCS

MetroPCS users have gotten a new prepaid tablet option, with T-Mobile announcing that the budget-range Alcatel Onetouch Pop 7 slate has arrived at its prepaid stores. This brings a prepaid option for those who want a tablet with a data plan sans contract, and is a direct jab at competing services, with T-Mobile’s John Legere saying, “We are blazing trails again – this time with tablets for the prepaid market through MetroPCS. Want a tablet from Boost or Cricket? They’ve got nothing.”

There’s nothing terribly notable about the Onetouch Pop 7, except perhaps its price tag: $149 USD outright. This is joined by tablet plans for current customers through MetroPCS that range from $10 to $30 per month (1GB to 5GB up to 4G speeds). It seems plans for those who aren’t already subscribers will be $5 higher per month.

The tablet features a 7-inch display with a resolution of 600 x 1024 pixels. There’s a Mediatek MT8312 dual-core 1.3GHz processor under the hood alongside 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage (expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card). Other features are just as basic, including Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Mali 400 graphics.

Users will get a 2-megapixel rear camera, Bluetooth 4.0, support for vibration alerts, a 3240mAh battery, and more. The tablet was first announced back in January of this year, and can be picked up now at any MetroPCS stores that have it in stock.
