However, it is equipped with slightly more powerful chipset – a MediaTek MT6577 – which features a dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU and a PowerVR SGX531 GPU.

Alcatel One Touch T10 Tab
Last but not least in the list, the Alcatel One Touch T10 tab. The 7-inch Android tablet is powered by a Rockchip RK2198 chipset which features a single-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU and Vivante GC800 GPU. With a display resolution of 800×480, it is also equipped with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, 0.3-megapixels front-facing camera and 3000mAH.
The tablet doesn’t come with any 3G connectivity though, so users need to depend on its Wi-Fi connectivity alone for any data-related activity on the tablet. All in all, one can consider the Alcatel One Touch T10 Tab as a no-frills budget tablet especially with its price tag of RM 499.
