Kmart Gets $179 Impression 7" Android Tablet
If you want the bleeding edge, you don’t need to read any further, but if you’re looking for an affordable entry model into the world of tablets, take a look at the Impression 7, from Leader International. It doesn’t have the guts of the industry leaders, but the $179.00 price point looks attractive, especially considering that at its core, it can handle just about everything any other tablet can.
The I7 is a 7” tablet that runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo). The screen is capable of 800×480 resolution. The I7 runs on a 1 GHz processor, and has 512 MB of RAM. Storage is handled by 4 GB flash memory, with an SD card slot that supports up to 16 GB SD cards. A 0.3 MP camera and two USB ports round out the extra features.
It’s no iPad or Galaxy Tab, but the I7 and its more expensive cousin, the 10” I10 ($349.00), will feed your need for media consumption in the home. There’s isn’t much in the way of high-end features like HD playback or a dual camera, but if you’re looking for an inexpensive way to get started on tablet computing, you could do a lot worse. As of right now the Impression 7″ and 10″ won’t be hitting retailers till November and one of them just happens to be big box retailer Kmart.
