Hands on with the Alcatel One Touch Tab 7 HD, Tab 8 HD, and EVO 7 HD Tablets [Video]

Alcatel announced an update to its line of tablets yesterday, effectively bringing fresh hardware across the spectrum. The Tab7HD features a 7-inch WXGA 1280 x 800 IPS display powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The larger Tab8HD sports the same specs as the smaller Tab7HD, although with a larger 8-inch display.

The One Touch Evo 7 HD utilizes the same internals as the other devices, though it comes with the option to purchase an additional mobile data module which Alcatel is claiming to be the first of its kind. With the additional HSPA+ module, the device is slated to be available for $249 at launch. There will also be a 4G LTE version in the future for $349.

Alcatel updating Evo line of tablets

Earlier today we reported on Alcatel’s new products being shown at CES 2013. These included some high end smartphones, some new tablet devices, and some lower end smartphones. New products are not the only thing Alcatel is announcing today. They are also releasing some details about some upgrades to their existing line of Alcatel One Touch Evo tablets. The One Touch Evo 7 HD is very similar to the One Touch Tab 7 HD with both devices sporting 7-inch WXGA 1280 x 800 screens backed by 1GB RAM, a 1.6GHz cpu and running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Even the base price is the same at $179. However, the One Touch Evo 7 HD has the option to add a mobile data module. Two versions are available – 3G for $249 and 4G for $349.

Moving down a bit, mirroring the One Touch Tab 7 is the One Touch Evo 7. This 7-inch 1024 x 600 screen device carries 1GB of RAM, a single-core 1GHz cpu and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The mobile data option is not as impressive either with only an HSPA+21 module and Bluetooth 2.1. Pricing has not been announced for this model.
