Alcatel has announced its second 7-inch Android tablet, named One Touch Evo 7. The manufacturer describes its latest creation as a 'modular' tablet; its appearance can be personalized by coloured frames. The standard WiFi functionality can be expanded with 3G by use of a separate module.
As mentioned, the One Touch Evo 7 is a 7-inch tablet, which runs on Android 'ice Cream Sandwich' 4.0.3. Alcatel has yet to mention a resolution, but its earlier One Touch T20, which had an equally-sized screen, was based on a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution. The tablet is powered by a 1 GHz processor, although the exact details are unknown. Alcatel reports that the CPU performs exceptionally well in multimedia applications.
The tablet has 1 GB of memory and an unspecified amount of internal storage, which can be expanded by means of a microSD card. A front-facing camera is present for video conferencing. As these specifications don't seem extraordinary, it appears that Alcatel's modularity is what should set the device apart from its competitors. Part of the case can be replaced to change the tablet to a different colour, in addition to the optional 3G module.
Alcatel has not yet revealed a release date and pricing information, but does mention several accessories, including flip covers and protectors. The new Evo 7 is intended for the entry-level segment of the market, which makes it likely that it will be priced accordingly.
