In all the iPad Mini hoopla today, it was easy to miss that another (slightly less rumored) tablet was released. If $499 for an iPad is too rich for your blood, and you’re hankering for an HD tablet with a large screen, it looks like the non-mainstream brand Android tablet makers are catching up. Enter the Tab-X 9.7 from.
On paper, the specs sound pretty decent:
Wireless and Bluetooth
Battery and Power
Input and Output
The real cherry on top of these specs is the price, starting at $239! Granted, this could end up being the technological descendent of the knockoff tablets that were sold with resistive touchscreens and poor components for $99 at your local Walgreens…but it is certainly intriguing looking, and a cheap way to keep a toe in the Android market without settling for a 7″ screen (or rooting an eBook tablet like the Fire or the NOOK HD).
If you see one in the wild, or know the brand, let us know what it’s like in the comments!
