The Alcatel One Touch Hero is a pretty special smartphone. It has a 6 inch full HD display with an E-ink cover you can use to read books without draining the phone’s battery. The phone has a 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU with 2 GB of RAM, and a 13MP rear camera. The E-ink cover attaches to the device using a docking pin on the side of the device. The final version of the cover will magnetically clip to the back.
The E-ink cover supports the built-in e-reader apps at this time but things could change in the future. The idea is pretty solid but we would like to test the final version before making a judgment on it.[via / video]
