Alcatel has been riding on its most impressive smartphone showing in its history, but the company also has a tablet it wants to show off ahead of its launch. Alcatel has introduced the One Touch Evo7, a modular tablet that can be as connected as you want it to be.
A base WiFi model can be purchased for one easy price, and should you decide to want 3G and 4G capabilities later on Alcatel has made it easy to purchase an expansion module to add the radios. The company makes it sound as if users will be able to make this change themselves, noting that you can add or remove the module anytime you want to.
We’re getting a 7 inch device that houses a 1.6Ghz dual-core chipset with quad-core graphics, and it’ll run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (and we would hope that can be upgraded to the latest and greatest at some point down the line). The tablet is only 10mm thin and weighs just 12.35 ounces, so you’ll have no problem touting it around as an everyday, on-the-go device.
As you’d expect, the One Touch Evo7 will be compatible with a number of accessories. “Integrated” flip covers, interchangeable colored frames and more will give you customization options that most tablets don’t. We wouldn’t expect to go much further than the second quarter without seeing this thing, but as it stands Alcatel is not yet ready to give us a time frame for release.
With that, we’re also left guessing about its price. We assume this won’t cost you an arm and a leg, but we’ll have to see just how nice this tablet is before making any concrete assumptions. You can learn more about it by reading on for full press details.
