The Android tablet arena is currently fraught with a number of vendors, each of which is offering a whole lot of Android tablet models. However, the place is less crowded when it comes to mini tablets which is predominantly occupied by the success of Amazon’s Kindle Fire lineup and Google’s rather recent Nexus 7.
However, both Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 are fairly impressive offerings in the mini-tablet arena. Alcatel isn’t a very well-known name in the world of tablets. Yet, the company is taking the risk of launching the OneTouch T10 tablet which is a 7-inch slate with a humble 800 x 480 display.
The hardware specifications of the tablet are also quite unimpressive. It packs a 1 GHz single-core Rockchip processor together with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage space with the ability to expand the storage through microSD. The tablet will be running Android Ice Cream Sandwich which doesn’t lend it any edge in a tablet market where new offerings are coming increasingly equipped with Jelly Bean.
The company hasn’t revealed the exact details regarding the release or the pricing of the new tablet. However, it is expected that the price tag will be pegged somewhere around $170. Do you think the low price-point may make it a success in the tablet market?
