Alcatel adds 10-inch tablet to Pixi 3 lineup

The 10-inch tablet has no price, but we're going to take a wild guess and say it'll be pretty cheap.

Alcatel's Pixi 3 line of tablets is getting a big brother. Joining the 7- and 8-inch models, the 10-inch Pixi 3 will come in 3G and Wi-Fi-only variants, but availability and pricing have yet to be revealed.

The Alcatel tablet runs on Android's Lollipop operating system and, like the 8-inch Pixi 3 model, it has a 1,280x800-pixel resolution IPS screen. Inside, it's powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that's expandable up to 64GB. It also features Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS capabilities.

At 9.5mm thick and constructed out of shiny plastic, it's obvious that the largest Pixi 3 isn't trying to be an au courant sleek and slim high-end tablet. The smaller models in the Pixi 3 lineup offer equally underwhelming specs and are cheaply priced, suggesting that the 10-inch model will also have a low price. Considering that Alcatel's affordable devices are geared toward emerging markets, it makes sense.
