This is Eric Franklin.
I'm at CES 2014, and today I'm taking a first look at the Alcatel One Touch Pop 7 and Pop 8. These are two Android 4.2 tablets.
However, Alcatel says they will upgrade it to 4.4 after release.
The 7-inch has a 1024x600 resolution screen.
However, it's not IPS so don't
expect wide-viewing angles.
The 8-inch has a 1280x800 resolution screen but does include IPS so expect better viewing angles on this one.
Each tablet includes micro SD storage expansion slots, which is great because they only include 4 gigabytes of storage on board.
Each will be available in both 3G and LTE versions.
Alcatel says that the 7-inch will come in at below $200 and the 8-inch below $300.
Look for them both sometime in 2014.
