EE's Eagle Own-Branded 8-Inch Tablet Soars Into Stores May 28th

By Gerald Lynch on at

Hot on the heels (or should that be wings?) of EE's first own-brand smartphone, the Kestrel, comes the network's first avian-themed tablet, the Eagle. An 8-inch, Huawei-built tablet, it's looking to take the same affordable route to your gadget shelf that the Kestrel did.

With a quad-core processor, 1280 x 800 screen, 5MP rear camera and a choice of 16GB or 32GB storage sizes (microSD cards are supported), the Android tablet is almost identical to the Huawei MediaPad M1. It's in the pricing though where EE's looking to win customers over, putting the Eagle on sale for £199.99 on a pay as you go deal. If you'd rather get it subsidised on a contract, it'll be offering it up at £49.99 on a £15 a month pay monthly plan too, with 2GB of data, making it one of, if not the most affordable 4G tablet out there.

Pick it up in stores from May 28th. [EE]
