Eagle from EE - budget Android tablet

EE launches budget 4G Android tablet

UK mobile company EE is continuing with its strategy of rolling out low-cost 4G Android devices. Headlining the latest batch of products is a tablet the company hopes will prove attractive enough to entice new customers to its super-fast network.

The EE Eagle offers up some decent specs. It is an LTE Android tablet with an 8-inch 1280 x 800 display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and a 5-megapixel rear camera.

The new device costs £199 on pay-as-you-go and is also available on contract. Plans start from £15 per month, plus a one-off fee of £49.

Although there are not any tablets currently on sale in the UK that are directly comparable to the EE Eagle, the LTE version of the Nexus 7 – which includes 32GB internal storage – is priced at £299 on Google Play.

Prior to announcing the Eagle tablet, EE launched its Kestrel smartphone. The budget Android device sells for £99 on pay-as-you-go.
