When you think about giving someone an Android tablet as a gift, you might automatically assume you’ll have to spend hundreds of dollars to find what you need. While those hundred dollar tablets are certainly worth their skin, some people just might not have that kind of dough to throw around, especially if they have half a dozen people to take care of as far as gifts go this holiday season.
Datawind recently announced plans to bring one such tablet to the United States, with the London-based firm bringing a full-featured tablet for just $38. It’ll be named the UbiState C7, a 7-inch 480 x 800 Android 4.0 tablet with a 1GHz single-core processor and just 4GB of internal storage. Not a looker by any stretch of the imagination, but if you want to enable friends and family with cheap and easy access to the internet, this is probably the way to go.
Don’t want to wait? Good news — you won’t have to! Big Lots is already doing Datawind one better by selling this 4.3-inch “tablet” for just $30. We’d consider it more of a personal media player at this size. The Trio Stealth Lite apparently comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 1.2GHz processor, 4GB of internal storage, a rear-facing camera, and more. You’ll have to head to your local Big Lots store if you want in on it, but that might be a small price to pay if all you’re looking for is a cheap device for basic needs.
