$100 Android tablet hits Walgreens

Remember the $150 Android tablet that showed up at KMart? How about the $100 netbook at CVS. Well, they’ve got company in the discount store computer space. Meet the $100 Maylong M-150 7 inch Android tablet available exclusively from Walgreens.com.

This little guy is really nothing to write home about, but it is cheap. It has a 7 inch 800 x 480 pixel resistive touschreen display, 802.11b/g WiFi, Ethernet and USB connectivity with a dongle, speakers, a camera, microSD card slot (or T-Flash card slot, as it’s called in this case), 2GB of flash storage, and 256MB of RAM.

The Maylong tablet has a VM8505+ ARM9 processor, which appears to be a 300MHz or 400MHz CPU. Like I said, nothing to write home about.

The tablet doesn’t include access to the Google Android Market, but the product description does suggest that you can “download and install custom Google Android applications,” so it sounds like there might be some sort of third party app store.

The product listing also points out that it comes with a web browser, eBook reader, and apps such as an alarm clock, contact app, and calendar. I know, exciting, right? In fact, the Walgreens web site also suggests using the tablet as a digital photo frame.

The folks at Android Tablet already got their hands on the little Maylong M-150, and they’ve posted an unboxing video which you can check out after the break.
