Something told us that when EE unveiled an own-brand 4G smartphone, a similarly-equipped tablet wouldn't be too far behind. The UK's biggest operator today confirmed it's launching a new 8-inch Android slate, it's called the Eagle and it'll set you back £199 on a pay-as-you-go tariff or £49.99 if you sign up to a £15 pay monthly plan. For that, you'll get a 1280 x 800 display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage and a 5-megapixel rear camera. That puts it on a level footing with Tesco's £119 Hudl, a tablet that has already enjoyed over half a million UK sales. The Eagle has an ace up its sleeve, though, offering built-in LTE connectivity that takes advantage of EE's double speed 4G network to deliver download speeds of up to 60Mbps. While it may lack the power and speedy updates that the LTE-capable Nexus 7 enjoys, EE's budget slate costs £100 less than Google's top-end tablet.
