The Alcatel One Touch Evo 8HD is an 8 inch tablet with a 1024 x 768 pixel display, Rockchip dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. In other words it’d be nothing to write home about… if it weren’t for a few intriguing accessories designed to work with the low-end tablet.
There’s a “Magic” flip cover, for instance, which has LED lights to display notifications even when the screen is covered. You can also use the tablet with the Alcatel One Touch Home V100, a stick that you can plug into your TV’s HDMI port to wirelessly stream content from the tablet to your television.
Alcatel describes the tablet as a modular device thanks to its support for these and other accessories which can extend its capabilities. There are also less unusual accessories including a docking station/stand and a magnetic flip-cover.
The Alcatel One Touch Evo 8HD features a Rockchip RK3066 dual-core processor, an IPS display, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software, and a microSD card slot. It has a 3MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and a 4160mAh battery. The tablet measures 8.7″ x 6″ x 0.35″ and weighs 14.6 ounces.
It has built-in support for 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth, and you can also add 3G HSPA+ or 4G LTE connectivity to the tablet with a removable module.
