ALCATEL ONETOUCH HERO 8: 8-inch tablet offers octa-core performance and multi-pole connectivity

Bring your living room with you: the HERO 8 tablet is perfect for gaming, downloading and watching movies, browsing the Web and more — at superfast speeds. And its compatibility with accepted industry standards ensures limitless connectivity.

IFA, Berlin, SEPTEMBER 4 – ALCATEL ONETOUCH introduces the HERO 8 tablet, the newest tablet to join the HERO family.

At 7.3mm thin and weighing just 310 grams, the HERO 8 is one of the slimmest and lightest tablets on the market. Its stylish aluminium body is topped by a wide, comfortable 8-inch screen.

HERO 8’s elegant appearance is matched by its performance

The superfast octa-core processor enables smooth music and video streaming; download apps and movies in the blink of an eye.

A high-performance, multi-use tablet for the whole family

The borderless 8-inch display offers full lamination, eliminating reflection, which makes it the perfect medium to watch movies and videos, for gaming and for browsing the Web. Families will also find that it is ideally adapted to social TV, reading magazines and newspapers, and for taking on trips.

Multi-pole connectivity for multiple uses

Besides being light on its feet, HERO 8 is a Miracast-certified device that allows users to transmit video or audio files on the tablet directly to a TV or monitor — wirelessly and without a router. The tablet can also become a universal remote control, with the TV Mate feature. Its connectivity allows it to be the centre of the connected home.

The connectivity of voice-call-enabled HERO 8 extends to Bluetooth phones, headphones and speakers. In fact, HERO 8 is compatible with any 4G, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth-connected device.

A smart ecosystem built to users’ needs

As befitting an ALCATEL ONETOUCH mobile device, the HERO 8 comes with a wide range of innovative accessories. The pin interface allows it to connect to, for example the MagicFlip LED, which includes an LED notification to alert users to incoming e-mails or alerts even when the cover is closed.

With the highly compact Sidekick 2 companion device, users can rule the airwaves remotely, controlling TV, music and more. Sidekick 2 also acts as an extension to the tablet, allowing users to access messages, contact lists and more.

With these features, accessories and companion devices, ALCATEL ONETOUCH ensures a truly versatile experience through connectivity to multiple screens. Everyone can invent their own customised HERO 8 and connect to their perfect experience.

The HERO 8 will be available on the market in September 2014.
