AT&T launches its first own-brand tablet, the Trek HD with 4G LTE support

AT&T is releasing a new Android tablet tomorrow, but it’s the first one to actually bear the carrier’s brand. The AT&T Trek HD is going to become available online on May 12, and in stores nationwide on May 15.

It’s an 8-incher with “HD” screen resolution (we’re guessing that means 1,280×800), a 5 MP rear camera, a 2 MP selfie shooter, and 16GB of expandable internal storage.

The chipset chosen is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400, in this iteration coming with a 1.6 GHz quad-core CPU. A 4,060 mAh battery keeps things running, and the software employed by the AT&T Trek HD is Android 5.0 Lollipop, with Google Now Launcher preinstalled.

The tablet is priced at $49.99 with a new two-year contract, or $10 per month for 20 months if you use AT&T’s tablet installment plan.
