Alcatel Announces Three Android Tablets

Alcatel has announced three new small tablets for the U.S. market, which will all be powered by Google's Android platform.

The company unveiled the One Touch Evo7 HD, One Touch Tab7 HD and its Tab8 HD during CES 2013. The One Touch Evo7 HD, for one, is a 7-inch tablet that will be available in WiFi, 3G and 4G variants; the two latter versions will offer a removable SIM card module.

It also sports a 1,280x800-pixel IPS screen, a microSD slot and a Micro-USB port. It's powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core CPU with a quad-core GPU and will ship with Android 4.2. Also included is a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, accompanied by a VGA front-facing camera.

Other specs include 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage and Bluetooth 4.0 support. The Wi-Fi model will be available for $179, while the 3G and 4G variants that ship with removable storage will be priced at $249 and $349, respectively.

The second tablet is another 7-inch device with a 1,280x800-pixel screen. The One Touch Tab7 HD is lighter and slightly thinner than the Evo7 HD and features the same specifications, apart from sporting 8 GB of storage and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, as well as Bluetooth 2.0 compatibility. The One Touch Tab7 HD will be available in just a Wi-Fi version and will be priced at $149.

Rounding off the trio of tablets is Alcatel's 8-inch tablet, the Tab8 HD. Aside from the downgraded 1,024x768-pixel resolution, the device sports identical specifications to the Tab7 HD. It'll be available for $179 upon launch.

All three of the aforementioned tablets will release sometime during 2013's third quarter, which is between April 1 to June 30.

    They are Most Known for they Affordable Android Powered Smartphones. Not the best, but, defintly a good choice for the ones that can't afford something like Galaxy S3. i personally liked their OT-990, that i still use. I decided to pick it up instead of a galaxy, so i could use the rest of the money on my PC, and the phone is pretty good. Although powered by GingerBread. They Bring High End Features to the user that can't afford premium Prices.

    I had an Alcatel phone once (10 years ago!). It worked fine, no issues ... and I liked the fact that it was special at the time.
