They also have a 10" version for $129. Here.


And a 8" version for $89. Here.


All of them have Go0gle Play Store.

What kills this for me at least is the wireless is only B/G and NOT N.

I am looking for a cheap tablet (this was perfect otherwise) to leave connected to my TV and stream movies and TV shows from TV Portal App. B/G only would not work that good.

Otherwise a decent little tablet for the price.

Does anyone know of a tablet with HDMI out and an Ethernet input? Even if I need a dock for the Ethernet.

What makes you say that?!? the specs say Built-in WIFI IEEE802.11B/G/N

I believe the 8" version will have the b/g/n wifi card. Its got a 1GB memory and 8GB storage. For $90, a far better tablet on a budget.

With 1GB at least you have the possibility of going to Jelly Bean. With 512KB you're pretty much locked in to ICS.

Lordie...hasn't it been proven these budget tablets are anything but?

Given your support is about as good as something used, why not just buy a refurbished kindle fire or Nexus 7? Both can be had for between 100-125 with little effort.

Does anyone know if it has play store ?

That's what they say in the description. They have sold more than 3000 of the 7" ones. I guess its safe to assume there is google play.

Download Games or Productivity Tools using Google Play (included). Thanks to the range of document, slideshow and spreadsheet editors available to download on the S700, your tablet can be your mobile work station; you may never need your laptop ever again. With the integrated microSD card reader you can transfer files easily or even plug in a USB flash drive in the USB host slot / via the USB host cable.

You do realize that B is 11mbits, and G is 54mbits?

With that being said, do you further realize that your internet connection is likely 10mbits or less? And that streaming HD content sucks down around 6mbits?

That looks good as I am in the market for a very cheap tab but I need bluetooth and unfortunately this appears to be lacking that feature.

I'm interested in an inexpensive tablet to give to my ailing father in law. He does not have (nor does he want) wifi so I need 3g or 4g connectivity. It's really just so that he can email his daughters in other cities over the next 6 mos to year. I'd also get him a data account with a cellular provider. On that point, is there any such thing as a tablet with cell phone capability? His hearing is poor so would probably want the ability to plug in a headset. Thanks.

I have an Acer a200 and a cheapie Polaroid 7 incher. Looking at the two, the Acer is obviously higher build quality, etc. The thing is the "expensive" tablet chokes on HD video. The cheap tablet plays everything. Depends on what you're using it for.

//Acer is much better with other stuff.
//Neither is my primary tablet.
