This Christmas, Walgreen’s will offer an Android tablet on their website. Walgreen’s is going to offer their tablet for just $99 (marked down from the $129.99 original price).
The tablet being offered is named the Maylong M-150.
The Maylong tablet runs the aging Android 1.6 OS and is assumed to not come with access to Google Marketplace. The display on the Maylong tablet is a 7-inch (800 x 480) resistive touchscreen TFT LCD display (comes with a Stylus). The 7-inch tablet is powered by a ARM9(VM8505+) CPU and comes with just 256MB of DDR system memory.
The Maylong M-150 tablet for storage comes with a SD card slot. Other things featured on the budget android tablet includes USB, RJ45, built-in speaker (1W) and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g connectivity. The tablet weights only 12oz., is 0.3″ thin and is supplied a 1500MA Li-Polymer battery (no word on the battery life).
As a lower end android tablet the specs are impressive considering the $99.00 price tag. I wouldn’t mind getting one of these under the tree instead of that itchy sweater. This would be a great starter device for those who want a tablet and don’t want a $399.99 commitment with a contract as with the Galaxy Tab. So keep a look out on Walgreen’s online, these are sure to go fast.
Here is the Walgreen’s Link go check back often. They are currently out of stock, they are expected to have more in the future. They wouldn’t sell out before Christmas.
