You may have noticed we haven’t heard much from Alcatel in the tablet area so far, but then you may ask what is CES for? Today the company officially announced it is going to release a new line of Android products, with two 7-inchers on the stake.
The first, out of the duo machines, is the 7-inch Evo 7 tablet that is claimed to include a single-core 1GHz processor, under the lid, alongside a front-facing VGA camera, an Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) for the OS, 1GB RAM and 4GB of integrated storage. Other than that, the French corp has also tossed in a microSD slot, paired with a Bluetooth 2.1 technology and WiFi support. In addition, you’re getting the option to add a mobile data HSPA+ 21 module, but that will cost you just a little more (prices are yet to be determined).
The second device, the Evo 7 HD, features an upgraded line of specs. While display remains at 7-inch, the screen resolution was updated to 1,280 x 800, and camera wise, you get two instead of one, a 3-megapixel rear camera and a VGA shooter up front. Furthermore, it packs 4GB of internal memory, microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB), a dual-core 1.6GHz CPU, and Android Jelly Bean for the OS. Of course, there’s a 802.11 b/g/n WiFi on board, together with a Bluetooth 4.0. Finally, you can either choose between the optional 3G module setup that will run you $249, or the 4G module that will set you back $349.
