My Tablet 7 by Xtec for $150 running new Ice Cream Sandwich

April 19, 2012
27

With a list of impressive specification, the Xtec may be putting the hot Kindle fire on notice. It come with features that mix it in with the established tablets but comes in at a price less than that which has made the kindle the seller that it is. With an on board storage of 16 GB and a forward facing camera it has already improved upon the Kindle.

Providing a HDMI output and having an expandable Micro SD slot makes this little wonder truly flexible when it comes to using it for more than reading books. This is what makes it a decent device and should provide an impressive competitor to the budget tablet market - so you can have the ability to watch your movies on apps like Netflix as well as being able to rock out to your music on Pandora.

The real attractiveness to this budget tablet is the amount of processing power that you get for your money. Coming in with a 1.5Ghz processor, as well as having 1GB of RAM, it should be more than capable of keeping up with the demands of today's high-tech consumer daily tablet usage. So if it lives up to its expectations based on its average list of specs, it should be on most people's list to check out.

    I’m going to get me one and test it out. I prefer this over the Kindle Fire.

      You really should order 2 or more. You could give them as gifts. Just give them the receipt of your purchase. It  will give them countless hours of entertainment.

    Include a tegra 3 processor, and it could be a awesome nexus tablet. :-)

      • Riley Castine

        No you can’t.  You make your order and 2 weeks later, it still doesn’t show up.  What a crock!

  • AFIELDSNE

    I WAS RIPPED OFF BY THIS COMPANY. I NEVER RECEIVED IT AND THERE IS NO PHONE NUMBER OR ADDRESS LISTED FOR THIS COMPANY.

    • Riley Castine

      Yeah, same deal for me.  I had to dispute the payment with PayPal.  They had until today to respond.  So far, the only thing I have seen is that my order on their website shows as reversed and I got the same email lopan got on 4-30-2012.  Still no tablet.

      The heck with these guys, they are just scammers.

  • lopan

    I received an email two days ago saying they should be shipping my tablet within 48 hours and they apologized about the backlog delays, BTW I found there address online if you still need it.

    This is the email i received three days ago… I ordered the product on April 17th. I’m truly beginning to think it’s a scam. Also the comment section of their site is moderated by the webmaster,  and there are only 4 comments… they won’t post mine.

    Anyone who reads this, Wait before ordering this tablet. I fear this company may have a short shelf life.

  • lopan

    I emailed them again this weekend, waiting now on a reply, if I hear nothing back from them i’m going to report them to the BBB, not a lot we can do other than warn people to wait on ordering from them.

  • lopan

    oh by the way I just noticed on their returns page they list a number 
    718-438-5019 to contact them, going to give it a try now, will report back.

  • lopan

    Pfff  voicemail. Left them a message.

    I just phoned the number, i believe the guy has no idea his number is assigned to go daddy. After a lot of searching, i have discovered XTEX is not mentioned as a real company anywhere, at least nothing even referencing this company exist before april 13th 2012.

    Also, the only reference to XTEX is from online reviews. the google map search of any addresses linked to this company also bring up pictures on street view of residential housing or empty lots.

    XTEX IS A SCAM, I suggest anyone who has placed an order with this fraudulent company report it immediately. If i find anything further, i will post in this thread.

    I filed a complaint with the BBB today and also contacted Paypal to try and get ba refund.

  • Tomschwartzrealtor

    Do not buy from this company

    These
    people and this company are ABSOLUTE CROOKS. I paid them on 4-18 for a
    My Tablet plus 32 micro card and they promised shipment in 7 – 10 days ,
    or April 25-29. It never shipped, when I complained they told me it
    would be another 48 hours.

    Now it is 2 weeks later and they do not
    respond to my emails or forms I filled out on their website.

    DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE PRODUCT AND WILL
    NEVER HEAR FROM THEM.

    NOTICE THEIR WEBSITE CONTAINS NO PHONE NUMBERS!

    MY TABLET IS A SCAM OUTFIT DESIGNED TO STEAL PEOPLE’S MONEY – IT IS
    NOT A REAL PRODUCT AND THEY CAN’T PROVE THEY HAVE SHIPPED ANYTHING.

    AVOID THIS COMPANY AND THEIR PRODUCTS LIKE THE PLAGUE. THEY ARE
    DISHONEST AND NON-COMMUNICATIVE. THEY WILL BE GOING DOWN LEGALLY AND
    FINANCIALLY SHORTLY WHEN THE AUTHORITIES CATCH UP WITH THEM.

    I will be contacting Android tomorrow to see what they have to say about this company and what licensing arrangement, if any, they have with Android.

    If this company really is a scam we need to take them down now.

    I just received another email. Now Xtex is using a different email service…


    XTEX via gator148.hostgator.com to me Dear Customer,It seems that the product you purchased “MY TABLET 7” has been backlogged by the manufacturer and willShip on Monday May 14th 2012 to you the customer.  I do understand if you decide to cancel your order whichwill be refunded promptly, but hope you do not since this is an exceptional unit at this price point andknow you will be very pleased when you finally receive it. Thanks,XTEX Sales”As you can see the Email is via Hostgator.comThis just keeps getting more ridiculous, anyone who has ordered, make sure to save all emails. I’m sending as much as i can to Paypal to get this fixed. 

  • LoPaN

    I got that same email today abd requested a refund, not that they will give me one but I hope Paypal will fix this issue for me.

  • Tomschwartzrealtor

    They never did ship mine but promised a refund within 1-2 days. It has been 3 days and i still have not received my refund. 

  • unhappycustomer

    I requested my money back…and emailed them a bunch of times, just got my money back from Paypal…this must be a scam…rotten assholes !

  • liveandlearn

    I really liked the tablet for the two weeks it worked, even though screen responsiveness wasn’t great. When the tablet died, I went to their website to start the process for a return. The website no longer exists and the phone number just goes to voicemail or is “busy” all day and night. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of dealing with an unknown company and am now paying the price. $149 is cheap but not if you are essentially throwing your money away. I filed a complaint with NYC Better Business Bureau but I’m not sure that will help get my money back.
