Sale4TheDay is making your entry into the tablet world really, really easy with this super low priced Android tablet from Skytek.
Ok, before all you nerds flay me alive for putting this product on the site just calm down, this isn’t for you. Go away. Ok, good, we’re alone. You are normal people. The people who don’t, unlike myself, see the need to drop almost $700 on a tablet. You are the people who don’t need the bleeding edge. You are the people who want a Skypad Alpha2.
Skytek isn’t really known for making top notch products. They are a low-end manufacturer but they serve a great purpose. A few great purposes, actually. First off, there are people out there who don’t want or need a top of the line tablet. This tablet is fully capable of doing most things you would want to do with a tablet. It is also great for people or situations where it might get damaged.
A great example would be someone who does extreme sports. Rock climbing, mountain miking, skiing. You don’t want to lose your $500 tablet in a snow bank. A $120 tablet isn’t as bad of a loss. This would also make a good starter tablet for a kid, and its price makes it great for low income families. A $120 price tag can be the difference between getting a tablet for Christmas and not getting a tablet at all.
Again, the specs aren’t great but they are good enough, and you can upgrade it to Android 4.0, which is a feat that some of the major manufacturers haven’t even been able to pull off yet. These are the specs out of the box:
- Android 2.3.4 Operating System
- 7″ capacitive touchscreen
- Cortex-TM-A8 1.2GHz processor
- OpenGL 2.0 support and 3D GPU
- 5-point Capacitive-touch Screen
