Alcatel isn't the biggest name in tablets, but its $179 One Touch Tab 8 was certainly compelling enough to catch our eye at CES. The Android Jelly Bean-powered tablet features an 8-inch 1024 x 768 IPS display and sports a 1.6-GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor and 1GB of RAM. Onboard storage is limited to 8GB, but there's also a microSD card slot.
If you're looking for a tablet that will shoot sharp images, the Tab 8's 2-megapixel rear-facing and VGA front-facing cameras will leave you wanting. But if you're in the market for a relatively inexpensive Android device with a decent amount of processing power, the Tab 8 should be worth a look.
