This isn't the first time we've witnessed a manufacturer make a slate with smartphone capabilities, but in the brave new world of Windows 10 Mobile plucky underdog Alcatel is testing the waters again with the OneTouch Pixi 3 (8).
The fact it sports the same naming regime as the firm's smartphone lines makes it clear there's a swing towards the handset business, but Alcatel is selling the Pixi 3 (8) as a Windows tablet first a foremost.
What you do get is a quad-core processor, 4G connectivity (including the ability to make and receive calls), an 8-inch display and three colour options; white, gold and black.
There's no word on pricing yet, although we're expecting it to sport a relatively budget price tag going by the specs and build. The Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 3 (8) will be available in Europe and Latin America from April 2016.
