Asus has unveiled a new tablet that is aiming at people who are shopping for an entry-level tablet on a budget. The new tablet is called the MeMo Pad 10 ME103K and it has a 10-inch screen with a native resolution of 1280 x 800.
First things first, you don’t usually name an entry level anything “Platinum”, but apparently there’s no rule against that – so here is ARCHOS, known purveyor of Android devices for the masses, with two new phones aimed at people who might be buying and using smartphones for the first time. The ARCHOS 45c Platinum and the 50b platinum are the newest devices out of the French electronics device company. Let’s see what they’re like.
Qualcomm has announced its latest processor that falls into its Snapdragon 200 family of chips. The latest offering is called the Snapdragon 210 and the big feature that it brings to the mix is support for integrated multimode 3G/4G LTE and LTE Dual SIM capability for entry-level smartphones.
The smartphone wars are getting to be such that no one manufacturer is able to control one market segment without any competition. We need not reiterate this fact in the entry level to mid-tier segments of the market, where the competition is fierce. With that, LG looks to bag some part of the segment by putting out the LG L60 smartphone, a Kitkat phone for this segment.
We’ve seen Samsung update their budget product line with upgraded devices running Android 4.4 Kitkat recently, and one of the first few markets that we’ve seen those migrate to is India, where the Galaxy Star 2 Plus has apparently landed. It is a small budget phone with modest specs, but notably, with Kitkat running the show.
Hisense may have just unveiled a more or less decent entry-level Sero 8 tablet last month, but it seems the company is too much in love with its Sero 7 series to completely bury it in the past. Introducing the Hisene Sero 7+, the third or fourth sibling that looks a lot like last year's Sero 7 LT except for a change of heart.
More than a month after Lenovospilled the beans on the price of its upcoming budget tablets, the manufacturer has now made those available for purchase. Make no mistake, these are not your top of the line Android tablets, but they might just be the ones you need if you're on the hunt for something basic and cheap.
HP just loves its affordable mobile devices. After outing a series of Chromebooks, the company is back to its Android tablet line, this time with another 7-inch HP 7 Plus slab that will probably keep your wallet happier than your eyes or fingers.
Over at Germany, LG has rather silently released the latest member of its L Series III family. The LG L35, like its siblings, sports entry-level hardware but tries to make up for it with some rather interesting software tricks.
It seems that UK carrier Three is on a roll in pushing out budget tablets just to get its network into as many hands and homes as possible. This time is it outing a very low spec Gemini D7 tablet for a very low price, as long as you purchase it with a portable MiFi.
