Alcatel PLUS 12 Windows 2-in-1 puts LTE in the keyboard

Windows 10 tablets, be it detachable 2-in-1s or convertibles are becoming more common that it’s getting harder to stand out from the crowd. You can try to compete in specs or price but, chances are, you won’t be alone for long. Just like with the LED-covered A5 LED, Alcatel might have an ace up its sleeve with the PLUS 12 Windows 10 tablet. It is one of the few of its kind that comes with 4G LTE support but there’s a catch. That LTE connection doesn’t come from the tablet itself but from the detachable keyboard.

DJI M200 is no toy, built for professional use

It seems that drones have come almost full circle. Originally created more for industrial and military purposes, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or drones as they are more popularly called, have become a hobbyist product that came in all sizes and prices. With that market almost saturated, drone makers like DJI have turned their attention to even bigger customers. The DJI Matrice 200, or M200, line of drones isn’t something you’ll be able to play with, even if you can afford it. This drone is all work and no fun, targeted at companies and industrial customers, but has a bigger potential to improve the lives of its users significantly.

Alcatel A5 LED covered smartphone leads MWC 2017 march

It isn’t surprising to see some manufacturers reveal more than one device at the MWC 2017. In fact, Sony just unveiled four. Alcatel doesn’t have as much nor as expensive, but at least one of them is just as flamboyant. Alcatel might claim that the U5 is the most affordable 5-inch 4G phone or that the A3 is the is the most affordable 5-inch HD phone, but it is the Alcatel A5 LED that will definitely draw the crowd, or the stares, because of its psychedelic rear.

ZTE Blade V8 Mini and Lite offer more choices for everyone

ZTE Blade V8 Mini and Lite offer more choices for everyone

Just last month, ZTE launched its popular Blade brand in the US with the Blade V8 Pro. The point of the brand was to offer some semblance of premium features at a not so premium price. At MWC 2017, the Chinese OEM is unveiling two “offshoots” of the Blade V8 line, the Blade V8 Mini and the Blade V8 Lite. Unlike the more or less generic Blade V8 Pro, these two focus their energies, not to mention their specs, on specific user groups that may have needs that another group may not want.

An extremely odd combination of elements has been presented this week with the Sony Xperia XA1.

With a 24mm wide-angle F2.0 lens and a high-quality body to it, this smartphone comes with a surprisingly inexpensive price tag at $300 USD.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be revealed on March 29

Samsung broke with tradition at Mobile World Congress today, bucking the trend set in previous years and failing to reveal its new flagship smartphone: in this case, the Galaxy S8.

Instead, Samsung took the wraps off two tablets.
