Hisense Bringing Low-Cost Android Tablets To Walmart Starting Today

Wondering if tablets have officially become a mainstream commodity? Well, here's your answer: they're flooding Walmart. While iPads and select Android tablets have been around on Walmart shelves for a bit, you know these things are getting popular once a brand like Hisense gets approved. It's spectacularly diffcult to convince Walmart to give you shelf space, and somehow, Hisense has managed to do just that. Hisense today entered the tablet marketplace with the Sero 7 Series. The Hisense Sero 7 PRO ($149) and the Sero 7 LT ($99) are available in Walmart stores and on Walmart.com starting today, and at those low price points, might just make it into a lot of carts through impulse buys.


Hisense Sero 7 PRO is a 7-inch 1280 x 800 High Definition touch screen powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core processor and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Other features include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of on-board memory, a 2MP front camera, 5MP rear camera, mini-HDMI, an SD slot, USB port, and a 10-hour battery. It's also Bluetooth-enabled. The $99 sibling runs Android 4.1 and ships with a 7" (1024x600) display, Wi-Fi, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of internal memory.

This may be just a quick editing/writing thing, but the $99 model has WiFi. and the $149 model does not?

Must check Hisense's site.

Per http://androidcommunity.com/hisense-sero-7-pro-with-tegra-3-android-4-2-takes-on-googles-nexus-7-20130519/ , yes the Pro has WiFi. I am tempted.

Question is what's the reliability of these tablets? Will they break down in just a couple of months of abuse from kids? Looks to be a good bargain though, especially since the specs on the PRO are quite close to the Nexus 7
