The Eagle 4G tablet is one of the range of branded 4G devices that has recently been launched by EE, and it is being described as the UK’s most affordable 4G tablet. Its slim lightweight design combined with superfast 4G connectivity make it ideal for streaming content on the move.
The Eagle is a new affordable CAT-4 enabled Android tablet from EE, and the network suggests that it has the specifications and features associated other more expensive 4G tablets. It has a high quality silver metal casing and is easily portable due to its low weight and slim design. At eight inches it is slightly bigger than many of the tablets it will be directly competing with such as the iPad mini. Although it is branded as an EE device, the tablet is essentially a Huawei MediaPad M1.
