Tablets are released left and right these days. Most of them you don’t hear about as they trickle out from mainland China and other parts of the technologically obscure world. Others are released in nationally and globally known stores. Such is the case with Maylong’s 7-inch M-150 tablet being sold at Walgreens for $99.


For the price, you can’t expect much in the way of specs. Still, they don’t look too bad for anyone who needs a quick and dirty Android-based solution on a 7-inch screen. Take a look:


  • Google Android™ Operating System

No word on which version of Android, but there looks to be light customization judging from the product picture. It’s currently sold out, but it looks like they’ll be expecting new shipments within a week. (Don’t call your local Walgreens looking for one because you won’t ever find it.) Elonex is also getting their cheap tablet into the mainstream as Toys ‘R’ Us will be carrying their 7-inch and 10-inch models this holiday season for £89.99 and £149.99, respectively.


Says Mike Coogan, marketing director for TRU:

“This is yet another new, exciting and innovative product that we are confident to bring to our sales floor. It is important that Toys ‘R’ Us inspire this young and inspirational market offering the best affordable products on the marketplace”

This one looks a bit more promising than Walgreens’ offering, too. It comes packed with an ARM11 1GHz processor, a 2GB SSD, a 2GB microSD card, Android 2.1, and other standard bells and whistles you’d expect. The biggest thing, though, is that it will come with the Android market so you shouldn’t have any problem expanding the experience after you walk out of the store. Would you guys pick any of these up?
