Last year, an Australian company released Dreambook ePad A10, a Windows Tablet PC. This year, another cheap tablet pc is up for sale by the same company but with an Android OS. Who says you have to shell $600 for a decent dual-core Android tablet PC? Pioneer Computers of Australia is launching a sub-$200 Android 2.2 tablet with their latest Pioneer DreamBook ePad 7 Pro! For only $199, you get a dual-core 1.2GHz ARM processor and 256MB of RAM.
The DreamBook ePad 7 Pro has very good technical specs. It sports the same 7-inch screen size found on the best-selling but far more expensive Samsung Galaxy Tab. It has a multi-touch LCD screen that maxes out at 480 x 800 resolution. The cheap price has drawbacks. The DreamBook ePad 7 Pro only has a tiny 2GB internal storage but that could easily be expanded by the included microSD slot that can handle up to 32GB cards.
There’s an optional GPS feature but Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity are already built-in. The DreamBook ePad 7 also supports G-sensor and Haptic feedback controls. The 0.3-megapixel camera is nothing to crow about but at least its already integrated unlike the more expensive Apple iPad which has no camera at all.
Again, this tablet is a good value for your money. Pioneer Computers deserves praise for bringing out what’s probably the world’s cheapest dual-core Android tablet. The DreamBook ePad 7 Pro is affordable and has all the necessary features you will need in a tablet computer.
