Kmart Offering Sylvania 7-inch Tablet at $180

Yes folks, there’s yet another Android tablet coming. This one is interesting in that it appears to be a Galaxy Tab knock-off. Although the hardware isn’t exactly low-end stuff, the $180 price is enough to garner second looks.  Created by Sylvania, this 7-inch tablet comes out of left field and joins the equally (un)impressive Augen tablet.

Behold the hardware:

  • Android 2.1
  • 7-inch 800 x 480 screen
  • Six hours of battery life
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 2GB Flash memory
  • Front facing camera
  • MicroSD card slot
  • 802.11b/g
  • WiFi
  • Two Mini-USB Sockets
  • HDMI-output

We still don’t know two crucial things: the processor- and the touchscreen type. And that are things you really want to know, a slow processor with a resistive screen is quite of a drawback, right? Market access isn’t promised, but since it’s possible to enable Market-access with a simple .apk install, it technically doesn’t really matter. It’s nice to have it pre-installed though. By the way, how do you like that iPad home screen knock-off?  How many products can you imitate at one time?

It’s cheap, who cares?
