EE extends the Harrier family with new 4G Harrier tab

EE, the UK’s most advanced digital communications company, today unveiled a new addition to the Harrier family – the Harrier Tab. It is the latest device from EE’s own brand product range and offers features and specifications traditionally associated with a higher price point.

 

Available for consumers and businesses from EE stores, EE telesales and via the EE online shop today, the Harrier Tab features the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system.  CAT 4 enabled, the tablet ensures users are able to access EE’s Double Speed 4G network, offering real world download speeds of up to 60Mbps (with theoretical maximum download speeds of 150Mbps) for the ultimate in connectivity and performance.

 

With a similar style to the Harrier and Harrier Mini smartphones launched earlier this year, the Harrier Tab features a powerful Octa-core 1.5GHz 64Bit Qualcomm processor. It also boasts an 8-inch Full HD display that’s perfect for enjoying crisp, clear videos and images captured on the device’s 8MP rear-facing, or 2MP front-facing, cameras.

 

The Harrier Tab comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory, with additional storage space available via a Micro SD card.  The tablet is designed to serve as a true multimedia hub, whether you’re sitting on the sofa at home or riding the bus to work. And at just 310g it is ultra-light weight without compromising on battery life, also incorporating a large 4,650mAh battery. The result is a highly powerful and portable device that is always on hand when users need to connect.

 

Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices, EE said: “Like its smaller siblings, we’ve made sure the Harrier Tab features an impressive spec at an easily affordable price point for consumers and businesses alike. When paired with our superfast 4G network, it really does offer one of the best tablet experiences on the market and is the ideal device for work, study or downtime.”

 

The Harrier Tab is available on a range pay monthly price plans starting from £16 per month, and is free on a £18 per month 24 month plan which comes with a massive 10GB of monthly data plus access to EE’s exclusive Double Speed 4G. The Harrier Tab is also available for just £199.99 on pay as you go, as well as a range of dedicated price plans for small and large businesses.
