If you’re too tight for an Amazon Kindle Fire but fancy an affordable Android tablet, you might want to consider Hisense. The Chinese vendor has discounted its Sero 7 LT and Sero 7 Pro tablets so they start from $79 and $129 respectively.

Both tablets have dropped from $99 and $149 respectively and can be found immediately at Wal-Mart stores. The two Android tablets offer native support for Google Play.

The Sero 7 LT was previously available for $99 and features a 7-inch 1024 x 600 resolution display, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of memory and 4GB of storage, while there are connections for micro USB and micro HDMI.

The device runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The Sero 7 Pro has a 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, double the memory (8GB) and an improved 7-inch 1280 x 800 resolution display.

The Android tablet also runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, sports dual-facing cameras (5MP on the rear, 2MP on the front) and connections for USB 2.0, mini HDMI and a micro SD card slot.

    Hisense has hit a price point that will enable the average income family to purchase a decent tablet computer for their school age children. This nearly puts the entire public library system into the hands of our students. It cost more to print texts books than it does to provide students with computers that are small enough to carry to and from school but can be interfaced with keyboards and monitors. It's priced so that a lost or stolen tablet is not a major monetary hardship.

    I commend Hisense for creating what appears to be a fully functioning device without scrimping on the necessities. Yes, it might be considered low on storage, but it's capacity to interface with the laptop left at home offsets that minor shortcoming.

    The competition is probably the new Nexus 7, but at nearly twice the price, most parents might balk at the thought of trusting a 4th grader to carry it around in a back pack.

    This is exciting news. The future of online education for the masses has never looked better.
