Alcatel OneTouch Tab 8 HD is a bit outdated Android tablet released back in 2013, packed with an exceptional Dual-Core CPU running at 1600 megahertz, a comfortable 7" multi-touch screen, and two cameras, a 2 MP back-facing camera and a 0.3 megapixels front facing camera.

Alcatel decided to equip this device with a high performance 1600 megahertz Dual-Core CPU, bundled in the Rockchip RK3066 chip and only 1 GB RAM memory which is a bit poor comparing with its impressive CPU. To handle graphic calculations, this tablet also has a 266 megahertz ARM Mali-400 MP4 graphics processing unit. The Alcatel OneTouch Tab 8 HD counts with an interesting 8 GB internal memory and an external memory slot, which allows the user to install a couple hundred games and applications without any trouble.

It seems like Alcatel didn't care so much about the weight in this 15.87 ounces tablet. This tablet has an inspired design, with a thickness of just 0.37 inches.

Alcatel packed this tablet with a good level 7" screen, and a 768 x 1024 resolution, which makes everything look nice. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

The Alcatel OneTouch Tab 8 HD is equipped with two cameras, a 2 mega-pixels back camera and a 0.3 megapixels front-facing camera.

The Alcatel OneTouch Tab 8 HD packs a high capacity 4150 mAh Li-Ion non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the Alcatel OneTouch Tab 8 HD with an incredibly long battery life. An issue to evaluate is that the Alcatel OneTouch Tab 8 HD's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it starts to lose its charge, even though with this big battery you will probably discard this device before it happens.

This tablet doesn't use a SIM card, because it doesn't work with GSM connections.

The Alcatel OneTouch Tab 8 HD also includes Bluetooth (2.0), and Accelerometer.

Alcatel sells the Alcatel OneTouch Tab 8 HD for $ 249, which is quite a high price for comparing with similar tablets.
