Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 7 lands in UK as super-saver tablet

Pixi 7

Alcatel OneTouch has finally launched its Pixi 7 tablet on UK soil after unveiling the budget slate back at MWC in February.

There’s no confusion here – Alcatel OneTouch has binned off any semblance of spec formidability for a wallet-coddling price tag of just £69.99.

So what does that near-invisible price tag get you? You’re looking at a 7-inch 960 x 540 QHD display slapped onto a 285-gram ‘compact and light’ chassis.

“Alcatel OneTouch today launches the Pixi 7 to the UK market, a 7-inch WiFi tablet which offers affordability without compromising quality,” says the firm.

Inside you’ll find a triple-core 1.2GHz processor, a 2840mAh battery that’s good for 4 hours of browsing time, and built-in WiFi connectivity.

Snapping potential comes courtesy of two decidedly meagre cameras, both measuring up at 0.3-megapixels front and back.

All this is utilised by an Android 4.4 KitKat operating system that will give willing users access to all the latest goodies Google’s Play Store has to offer.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Pixi 7 comes with an integrated infrared port, which means you can use your tablet as a universal remote control via your TV.

The specs are assuredly underwhelming, but that’s no surprise considering the price point.

The Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 7 is available nationwide from Three stores starting today, and lands in a singular colour option - ‘bluish black’.

Interesting, but TBH at this price point id also be taking a close look at the new raft of sub £80 Windows 8 tablets like the Linx 7 for £79.99

Screen and CPU are much better, plus if you stick with Metro itsa great experience on a tablet with full web browsing, easy 1080p video playback ,and although with less apps than Android the ones that are there are pretty good. Plus, although I wouldnt recommend it for often use, its got a full windows desktop under the hood for times when you just HAVE to use some legacy software. Quite an impressive package for just £10 more than this
