EE has launched an entry-level tablet to its range called “The Jay from EE”, that offers decent spec for a budget price. It is an affordable 4G tablet that employs a design which will be familiar to many, and actually exceeds the expectations one would have for a pillory with a £119.99 price tag.
The EE Jay looks a little like an iPad with a home key in a same position at the bottom of the screen and a metal design – this is the most premium looking tablet EE has ever created.
The Jay’s biggest selling point though is its 4G connectivity, which is ideal for outside use during the upcoming summer. It is available to buy from EE shops and the network is throwing in a sweetner deal. Anyone that buys it before 26 May on a 4GEE Extra plan will receive a three-month entertainment pass on Sky’s Now TV player.
The silver and white Jay is fronted by a 7.85-inch, 1,024 x 768 display, with a 5-megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front-facing camera rounding out the rest of the visible features. Inside you are looking at a 1GHz quad-core MediaTek processor running Android 5.1 Lollipop, 1 gigabyte of RAM and 16 gigabyte of internal storage (expandable with microSD cards up to 32 gigabyte) and a 3,600mAh battery. And of course you get a 4G radio alongside WiFi 802.11b/g/n support, this being an EE tablet and all.
The Jay from EE will be available from 11th of May on a range of pay monthly price plans starting from £16 per month, it based on a 24 month plan and an upfront cost of £29.99. Existing customers pay nothing up-front and receive a further ten percent discount on the monthly cost.
