Here’s a principle that Android users and fans can apply to both software and hardware: Android is all about diversity and the freedom of choice. But while the top-end race gets all the attention, there is a sector that has become increasingly interesting to watch, as the aforementioned race gets more intense: the ultra low-cost Android tablet market.
So, we’ve set to answer a seemingly crazy question. How far will $100-$125 get you when it comes to purchasing an Android tablet?
Not much if you’re planning to impress your buddy, owner of a new iPad. But if you’re willing to acknowledge that you do get what you pay for, you’ll find that basic web browsing and multimedia rendering are just a couple of tasks that all the following tablets are able to perform with ease. So let’s not waste any more time and take a quick look at the Android tablets you can buy for around $100-$125. Just don’t expect any mind-blowing specs!
While there are other tablets out there in the $100-$125 price range, they are all almost the same when it comes to the specs. If you’re seriously planning to get a ultra low cost Android tablet, than your choices ultimately boil down to choosing the OS (Gingerbread vs ICS), the amount of internal storage, and 3G dongle support. As expected, all tablets in this price range have a 7-inch screen running at 800 by 480 and feature a 1GHz single-core processor alongside 512MB of RAM. Just make sure you read a few customer reviews before ordering one!
