When you think of low-priced Android powered tablets one thought comes to mind as an immediate success: Amazon Kindle Fire. Now, Samsung is on board and they have created a 7 inch version of the Galaxy Tab that will go on sale for $249. However, with this low price point will users pay in the end for a device that will become quickly outdated? See specs below:
- 7″ capacitive touchscreen
- Dual-core 1 GHz processor
- Android 4.0
- 8 GB on-board storage
Hopefully this device will cause a stir in the low-end tablet market, the Kindle Fire is an excellent alternative to the iPad but Amazon has almost over-processed their custom version of Android. Samsung has kept the important features of Android 4.0 present by not over-skinning and this may be a key selling point.
Bottom line: Android tablets are getting better and with specs at this price point; who can resist? Although the processor is just 1 GHz except Ice-Cream Sandwich to run smoothly.
