AT&T today announced that it’s going to start selling a new tablet soon. This isn’t a tablet that AT&T is just going to carry for some other OEM. It’s the carriers own-brand tablet. Carriers in the United States have been shifting their attention to own-brand devices recently, with Verizon launching its Ellipsis tablets and T-Mobile coming out with its REVVL smartphone. AT&T has now announced its Primetime tablet.

As the name suggests, this tablet is aimed at those who want to consume media content on the go. It also takes advantage of AT&T’s ownership of DirecTV. The Primetime tablet has a TV mode which provides easy access to video apps like DirecTV and DirecTV Now with one swipe, a subscription is still required to access those video services, though.

As far as the hardware specifications go, the AT&T Primetime tablet has a 10.1 inch 1920×1200 pixel resolution LCD display, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with 2GB of RAM, 32GB storage, Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and a 9,020mAh battery.

AT&T will start selling the Primetime tablet from August 25th for $10 per month on a 20 month term. Customers will also have the option to purchase it on a 2 year contract for $29.99.

LTE connectivity is supported and AT&T customers will be able to add the tablet to their existing plans for an additional $20 per month.
