AT&T's first self-branded tablet is built for the budget crowd

Hey, Verizon: you're not the only US carrier that can play the in-house tablet game. AT&T has unveiled the Trek HD, the network's first self-branded slate. The 8-inch Android design isn't exactly flagship-class, but it might hit the spot if you want LTE data on the cheap. You're getting a modest 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, 16GB of expandable storage and an 8-hour battery. It does ship with Lollipop out of the box, though, and the price is certainly right -- you're looking at $50 on contract, or $200 over a 20-month installment plan. If all you want is a way to check Facebook when you're on vacation, you'll probably be fine.
