Online electronics store Geekatronics looks set to release a new 7-inch Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0 OS) tablet for $99, putting it in a direct competition with Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7.
The firm’s own-brand Dragon tablet offers a 7-inch capacitive display (800 x 480 resolution), is based on Android 4.0 and has the Allwinner A10 processor. The tablet also comes with 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and supports WiFi connectivity.
Geekatronics says that the tablet will debut on October 31 along with an array of other new tablets, all of which appear to be under $200.
Customers can now pre-order the Dragon tablet from the Geekatronics website.
The entry-level Android tablet market continues to get more competitive by the day, with Amazon just last month superseding its original $199 Kindle Fire with an ad-supported $159 model.
