Because of Apple's tight grip on everything, there are a few things that iPads can never be or do. They can never cost below $200 brand new, and they can never have IR blasters. Coincidentally, both of those happen to be the two key features of the Alcatel A30 TABLET. An Android slate, it can be whatever Alcatel wants, limited only by the capabilities of its hardware, which isn't much, to be honest. And Alcatel wants it to be your entertainment device, be it on the tablet's screen or on a bigger screen.
