Alcatel OneTouch Pixi Tablet
The Alcatel OneTouch Pixi tablet is a budget device with the following specifications:
- 7" 1024x600 screen
- 4000 mAh battery
- Quad-Core 1.1 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 210 processor

- Support for the following LTE bands: 25, 26, 41
The plan being included with the tablet is a one month free trial of FreedomPop's premium 2GB semi-annual plan. It comes with monthly allotments of:
- 2GB of data
- Unlimited Talk
- Unlimited Text
After the free month trial, customers can either elect to cancel the plan or pay $71.94 for 6 months of service. This works out to an average cost of $11.99/month.
Unless subscribed to the phone premier plan described below, data speeds are thought to top out at about 5 Mbps.
A one month free trial of FreedomPop's Phone Premier semi-annual plan is also included in the offer. FreedomPop's Phone Premier plan is priced at $26.94 every 6 months which works out to an average monthly cost of $4.49.
The semi-annual phone premier plan includes:
- Visual Voicemail
- Data Rollover - Rollover your unused data and bank up to 20 GB for use anytime
- Premium Voice
- MMS Texting
- Data Compression - Get up to 2x your data with compression technology
- Usage Alerts - Prevent pay as you go charges before going over data limits with usage alerts
- Private Internet - Ensure your internet, voice calls & texts are secure and encrypted
- Hotspot - Connect up to 8 devices anywhere you go
- Ad Blocker
- Data Saver - Control your data usage with data throttle
- Speed Boost - Enjoy lightening fast internet speed, without any restrictions
- FreedomPop Sponsor Ads Free Messaging - Avoid banner ads in your messaging app
If you do decide you want both of FreedomPop's paid add on services, their combined costs will run you $98.88 every 6 months which works out to an average cost of $16.48/month.
This latest offer from FreedomPop comes with a lot of unnecessary features for a 7" tablet. For instance, does it really need to come with premium voice, mms messaging and visual voicemail? Unfortunately, you don't have a choice if you want to get this deal to use the tablet for tethering/mobile hotspot purposes.
As far as LTE connected tablets go, it certainly is priced as a bargain.
