Android Central @ CES

Not content with releasing 5 smartphones so far this week, Alcatel is also today announcing the launch of a new tablet with cellular data capabilities. The One Touch Evo7 HD is a 7-inch tablet, that can be upgraded to 3G/4G via a removable data module that can be installed or removed to each users desires. 

Spec wise, the Evo7 HD will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean over the top of a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with a quad-core GPU. It's pretty thin and light, coming in at just 10mm thick and weighing 12.35oz. There's a push on individualizing your tablet too with a full set of accessories coming to market with the tablet, such as flip covers, pouches, and colored frames to change the appearance of the tablet. Sadly we're not treated to any information regarding on board storage at this time, and while the specs we do know aren't going to set the world alight, the Evo7 HD could be a solid budget offering at the right price. 

As with their smartphones, Alcatel will be showing off the One Touch Evo7 HD at this weeks CES 2013 event in Las Vegas. The full press release can be found after the break.

Sounds cool but I think they stole that name. Evo, I mean really,come on. THats like a kick in the balls for htc.

crxssi says:

I think the term "Evo" in relation to cell phones is completely owned by Sprint. If I were Sprint, I would sue them...

(I don't like lawsuits and such, but this is a perfect example of a PROPER thing to sue over).

MarkSeven says:

I agree with crowrb29.. Evo? Really? Come up with ur own name Alcatel..

kinster02 says:

They did, its the Evo 7 not the Evo.

movielover76 says:

No they didn't, the Evo 7 sounds like a Sprint / HTC tablet version of their popular Evo line.
It sounds like a new iteration of the Evo line.

MarkSeven says:

Are u serious? So just 'cuz they added the screen size to the name it makes it okay right? Dork.

DWR_31 says:

jblank says:

Are Alcatel devices good quality? I admit, I'm thinking of dumping my iPod 2 in favor of an Android tablet and these do look quite cool, just concerned about quality.

movielover76 says:

EVO7 really, don't be lame and take HTC / Sprint's name.
I'd be surprised if someone at HTC / Sprint doesn't challenge this name.

Bruh-Man says:

It's a foul play no doubt, but HTC says: "Lawsuit??... h'aint nobody got time fuddat!!"

MarkSeven says:
