MWC, Barcelona, 22 February, 2016 – Increasing its offering of Windows devices, ALCATEL announced the launch of its PLUS 10 2-in-1 device, running on the latest Windows 10 operating system.

"PLUS 10 is ALCATEL's first 2-in-1 device with Windows 10, and we're very proud of all the functionality we've built into it," said Vittorio Di Mauro, General Manager of Smart Connectivity at ALCATEL. "PLUS 10 goes everywhere I go – the house, the office, even the park! It's a fun product that sparks a lot of conversation (and jealousy)."

"We are excited to welcome ALCATEL to the Windows ecosystem and add their innovative LTE 2-in-1 tablet to our Windows device portfolio. The PLUS 10's unique features, combined with Windows 10, provide the optimal balance between productivity and entertainment from wherever you go," said Peter Han, Vice President, Worldwide OEM Marketing, Microsoft Corp.

3 Modes, 1 Irresistible Price:

Mobile office: With its compatible 4G/Wi-Fi-connected keyboard, PLUS 10 offers a complete mobile desktop experience. It can be used in laptop mode to type documents or create spreadsheets, and in dock mode to display presentations or slides. With its multiple ports — rare to see in this device category — PLUS 10 further shows its hard-working sensibility, by enabling connections to a hard drive, mouse, USB key, secondary screen and more.

In addition, PLUS 10 has a default memory of 32 GB that can be ramped up with an external SD card for extra space for holding pictures, videos etc.

Entertainment center: PLUS 10 can be used in dock mode to view videos or movies. To top it off, the dual front speakers, with immersive 3D sound, coupled with the high-resolution (1280 x 800) IPS screen technology, make film watching and gaming an extra pleasure.

Travel companion: Exceptionally convenient to carry, PLUS 10 is compact and 40 percent lighter than an average laptop. When used in tablet mode, without the keyboard, it is even more portable and is an ideal companion for travel or commutes, to browse the Web, play games or serve as an e-book reader.

Powerful Battery, Wi-Fi Hotspot and Cameras Add Functionality

PLUS 10 is equipped with a double battery. The tablet and 4G LTE keyboard offer a total of 8,410 mAh, which lasts a full 8-hour working or playing day. The unique, connected 4G LTE cat 4 (150Mbps) keyboard works double-time to serve as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 15 users.

To complete PLUS 10's long list of functionalities, it has both a front and rear-facing camera, with front flash which is ideal for video calls.


PLUS 10 will be offered in several different finishes and in an elegant, subdued palette of colors: metallic silver, matte white, matte volcano black and a unique warm gray leather finish, which is silky to the touch.

PLUS 10 will be available for sale in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa in June 2016.

  • Keep em coming! Now for some oem wm devices.
  • What so 2 in 1 about it ?
  • Well, its because both numbers are higher than your IQ. :-P Seriously, its a tablet, with optional keyboard. The very defintion of 2 in 1
  • Nokia bought Alcatel OneTouch, right?
  • Nokia bought Alcatel's network business...just like Microsoft bought Nokia's mobile business...
  • You're right, Alcatel-Lucent. Thanks.
  • Nokia bought Alcatel-Lucent. There is no such thing as Alcatel's network business.
  • Alcatel Lucent is exactly that. No need to be a prick. 
  • Agreed, from Wiki on Alcatel Lucent : "The company focused on fixed, mobile and converged networking hardware" So, pretty much Alcatel, and pretty much a network business :/
  • Nokia bought Alcatel-Lucent. Alcatel Onetouch whatever is separate company not related to Alcatel-Lucent.
  • It was related in the past. TCL bought 50% of alcatel onetouch from alcatel lucent, then they bought alcatel onetouch completely not so long ago (2013 or 2014 not sure exactly when). Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Yes. But not anymore. Nokia bought Alcatel-Lucent in its entirety.
  • Nokia bought the networks arm Alcatel Lucent. Alcatel One touch Mobility brand is owned mostly by TCL of China.
  • Did mwc 2016 start already? I thought 22nd?
  • I hope this will be affordaable
  • Please do us a favor and mention in the headline when devices aren't for the US. Posted via my Nexus 7 2013 using the Windows Central App for Android
  • Why? The US is not the center of the world.
  • Yes please, state right up front what markets it is for. Doesn't help to read throught his when we can't get our hands on one.
  • But it is the most important for Microsoft and for windows central both of which are headquartered and focused on the U.S. Microsoft is primarily geared towards the U.S.  whether you like it or not. 
  • Alright, I'm doing it... When in India?
  • You got that wrong... "wen in India?"
  • Yuck, no USB-C. Another device firmly rooted in the ancient past.
  • The text of press release part of this article is barely visible in dark theme in the new preview Windows Central app because the background of the part is pretty bright.
  • Microsoft should set minimum 64gb for hard drive since the OS itself uses a huge chunk of space. I could not install OneDrive and some few program, that's not good.
  • Sorry, but Alcatel hasn't announced anything, TCL did- They have the rights to use the name for their products, but that doesn't make them a company called Alcatel. A product name can't announce anything. Or did you ever hear of Lumia announcing the 650? :P
