The detachable 4G LTE keyboard can serve as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 15 devices.
Alcatel said the Plus 12 is one of the lightest 12-inch 2-in-1s on the market, weighing in at 990 grams, and features a brushed-metal front casing.
"We are convinced that productive devices will be more and more connected to cellular networks," said Vittorio Di Mauro, senior vice president at Alcatel. The device supports the Windows Hello fingerprint recognition in Windows 10, and the Windows Ink note and annotation feature.
Also at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the company showed off a smartphone with an interactive LED-covered backplate, the A5 LED. The LEDs can be used to display different patterns for incoming calls, messages, alarms, and social media alerts, or light shows that move with music
