Consumer Electronics Show was a great opportunity to share more details on devices even if they have been talked about quite a lot, or to announce upgraded versions of the said devices. Alcatel definitely made good use of its chances and presented the Evo 7 and Evo 7 HD Android tablets. The unique selling point is the ability to buy the tablets with removable mobile data modules.
Alcatel One Touch Evo 7 Tablets – Overview
The Evo 7 HD, as the name suggests, has a 7-inch touch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It is powered by a dual-core 1.6GHz processor paired with 1 GB of RAM, and 4 GB of internal storage. Should this not be enough, you will be able to expand the storage capacity thanks to microSD card slot.
The tablet has a 3 megapixel rear-facing camera, VGA front-facing camera, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This model costs $179, but you can opt to pay out $249 for a model with a removable 3G module, or $349 for a 4G module.
The more modest version, Evo 7, has the same screen size but only a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution. The device is driven by a single-core 1 GHz processor with 1 GB of RAM, and it runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The Evo 7 is equipped only with a front-facing camera and the optional module for it is 3G only.
The Evo HD is due to arrive in the US in May, but still there is no word on the expected launch date or pricing for the Evo 7.
