Monster has officially announced a pair of Android tablets. The models will include the 7-inch M7 and the 10.1-inch M10, though as of today only the smaller of the two will be available for purchase. These tablets will be exclusive to Walmart. Specifically, for online sales by way of Walmart.com. The M7 is priced at $149 and available in a wide-variety of colors.
The Monster M7 will have a non-skid surface and the colors will include Candy Blueberry, Candy Tangerine Orange, Candy Grape Purple, Candy Apple Red, Candy Lime Green, Cotton Candy Pink, Frost White and Midnight Black. Those familiar with the Monster line of N-Tune headphones may recognize these colors as they will be matching. Despite having matching color schemes though, the headphones will not be included with purchase of a tablet.
Aside from the colors, the Monster M7 tablet will have features to include 16GB of storage along with a microSD card slot, 1GB of RAM and a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. The tablet will have a display resolution of 1280 x 800 and also feature a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, 2 megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, mini-HDMI and a battery life of up to 8 hours by way of the 4000 mAh battery.
In addition to connecting the M7 color lineup with the N-Tune headphones, Monster is using this tablet as another way to control the (sold separately) power modules. These will be controlled with the Monster Center Power Control app and they are basically smart plugs that allow the user to remotely control and automate some of their electronics.
Otherwise, the tablet will be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and come with full access to the expected Google apps including the Play Store.
That all being said, while Monster has also announced the M10, the details are light. At this time they have said the M10 tablet will be available in the fall and that the price and specs will be announced at a later time.
