Alcatel Evo 8HD unveiled: sleek aluminum tablet
The Evo 8HD is by no means cream of the crop - it shoots for affordable and stylish instead. The aluminum body is merely 9mm thick, and the tablet features an HD display, a dual-core 1.6GHz chip and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
It has 1GB of RAM, and internal storage is only 4GB, but you can expand via microSD cards of up to 64 gigs. The Evo 8HD also sports a 3-megapixel rear camera, 2MP front camera, and a 4160mAh battery.
Alcatel touts the Evo 8HD to be a modular tablet, and in this case this means that you can swap its cellular modules and upgrade it to either 3G or 4G LTE radios. It’s offered with plenty of accessories like a ‘magic’ flip cover that informs you about incoming messages with an LED light. Then there’s a docking station, or a simpler magnetic flip cover.
Alcatel has not yet announced pricing and release date for the Evo 8HD, but our guess is for affordable device.
