T-Mobile announced a new wave of Back-to-School deals also including a free Android tablet just added to the Un-carrier portfolio, the Alcatel JOY TAB KIDS 2. More importantly, both new and existing customers can use the Get Android tablet for free either in stores or online, although adding an eligible tablet line is required Alcatel JOY TAB KIDS 2 can also be purchased without adding a new line by simply paying the retail price of $170. The specs are decent for a sub-$200 tablet, but the fact that it comes with Android 10 is a big deal breaker.
In addition, the tablet has an 8-inch IFP display (1280 x 800 pixels) with Asahi Glass for extra protection, 5 megapixel main camera and 5 megapixel selfie. Also, The Alcatel JOY TAB KIDS 2 from T-Mobile is powered by a 2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8766B processor, coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory (up to 256GB via microSD).
It offers support for 4G LTE connectivity and a fairly small 4080 mAh battery that is capable of up to 12.5 hours of video playback or up to 28 days of standby time. The tablet comes with Kidomi, a content platform included for 1 year with purchase that allows children to access curated books, games and videos without in-app purchases or ads. As shown in the image above, the tablet comes with an Alcatel TKEE bumper cover in Waterpark Teal color.
