If you followed our coverage of CES 2013 last week, you might have realized that Alcatel One Touch had a huge outing at the event by unveiling plenty of devices in the form of smartphones and tablets. Among new products that the brand unveiled over there is the one shown above – the Alcatel One Touch Evo 7 tablet.
In terms of hardware, the Alcatel One Touch Evo 7 is almost an exact copy of Alcatel One Touch T10 Tab which has been available in our market since last November. Just like the T10, the Evo 7 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is equipped with a Rockchip RK2198 chipset which features a single-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU and Vivante GC800 GPU. It also comes together with 1GB RAM, 4GB of internal storage and 0.3-megapixels front-facing camera.
That being said, there are couple of difference that separate both the Evo 7 and T10 Tab. Click on the Read More link below to find out.
First and foremost is Evo 7’s display. Despite sharing the same 7-inch form factor, Evo 7’s maximum display resolution is higher at 1024×600. Furthermore, Evo 7 is also equipped with higher capacity battery at 4160mAh as compared to T10 Tab’s 3000mAh. Of course, the biggest difference between both tablets is Evo 7’s removable HSPA+ module which gives the tablet its cellular connectivity while T10 Tab is limited to Wi-Fi network alone.

Even though there’s a warning on the module that advised users to switch off Evo 7 before removing the module, we learned that the module can be swapped in and out without the need to restart the tablet.

The new Alcatel One Touch Evo 7 tablet is scheduled to be released in Malaysia next month with a price tag of RM 799 inclusive of the HSPA+ card module and exchangeable back outline.
