New Windows 10 devices revealed at Mobile World Congress

A series of new Windows 10 devices have been unveiled at the Mobile World Congress.

ALCATEL, Lenovo and HP have all been showcasing their latest offering at the event in Barcelona, Spain.

The ALCATEL PLUS 10 is a 10-inch, 2-in-1 device powered by the 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. “The Windows 10 operating system and quad-core Intel processor make it a powerful tool for productivity on the go.”

Thanks to Continuum, users can seamlessly transition between tablet and laptop modes with the PLUS 10. The device can also be docked to provide a desktop experience.

The PLUS 10 comes with 4G/Wi-Fi connectivity out-of-the-box, and can serve as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 15 devices.

The ALCATEL PLUS 10 device will be available in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa from June 2016.

Lenovo has unveiled three new Windows 10 devices – the new YOGA 710 and 510 PCs, and the ideapad MIIX 310 2-in-1 detachable tablet.
