Maylong 7-inch M-150 Universe Tablet


Thanks goes out to GottaBeMobile for bringing this to our attention.

Over at Walgreens, they’ve got a new 7-inch tablet on sale for the measley price of $99.99 (original price of $129.99) plus shipping (unless you buy it at the store).

Since the iPad, it was only a matter of time till more and more companies came out with stuff like this.  I’m happy to see that places are willing to reduce the price of things, but at what cost.

I’ve asked the company what their requirements are for people who would like to review their products (in order to get a device to review) and am waiting on word back from them.  If I do get a piece for review, I’ll be doing a full blown down and dirty review of it and put it to the test.

My biggest worry is the 800 x 480 screen resolution.  That’s going to be a bit harsh on a 7-inch tablet screen. Also it’s a resistive touch panel instead of reactive, so…just saying.

We’ll see what kind of a response  I get from Maylong. I know they currently have a line of  GPS units and it appears as though they’re doing quite well with those.  let’s just hope they are able to bring an even more affordable tablet to the dinner table.
