The Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7 is a budget-oriented, 7-inch slate that aims to bring decent performance and extended connectivity at an accessible price. The tab is supposed to be the thinnest and lightest of its kind, and also packs a dual-core CPU, 1GB RAM, and a pair of cameras.
Display-wise, the OneTouch Pop 7 doesn't have much to show off. The 7-inch TFT panel has a resolution of 1024x600 pixels with pixel density coming in at 170ppi. This means that small objects – like icons – do not look sharp, but blurry, and fine text (e.g. in the browser, when zoomed out) cannot be read comfortably, so you have to zoom in. Even 1080p videos look slightly pixelated from normal viewing distance.
It is very lighweight, weighing at only 0.62 pounds, but it’s way too thick at 0.35. But those that got a sneak peek at CES reported that it was comfortable to hold, and that is all that really matters in the end.
Granted, a $150 tablet isn't necessarily going to wow you with the hardware, but it's a 7-inch tablet with 1024x600 resolution, 4 GB storage (with microSD slot), 1 GB RAM, and a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor, so it should get you by if you're looking for a basic, not too expensive tablet for on-the-go work or play.
