I'm Scott Stein.
When it comes to tablets in the entrant landscape, it seems like it's more about how little you're willing to pay than whether or not you're going to get one.
Hitting at the bottom of the price landscape is the new Sero 7 LT and Pro from Hisense, new entries in the landscape available exclusively at Walmart at $99 and $149, respectively.
That is pretty darn cheap.
And you are getting different sets of specs than you would expect on the high-end
On the LT, we got a dual-core processor, only 4 gigs of on-board storage but you do get a microSD card slot, HDMI, and your USB connection.
Plus, you get a front-facing camera.
The Pro adds front-, rear-facing cameras, a better NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 8 gigs of storage-- which is still not a lot-- and a bumped-up screen resolution, 1280x800 versus 1024x600 over here.
We're still talking about kinda commodity devices-- very Kindle-like, competitive, with the Nexus
7, and you're dealing with something that's very friendly to tuck in.
The Sero 7 LT is upgradable to Android Jelly Bean 4.1 and the Pro is upgradable to 4.2.
They have pretty similar looks with slightly different back designs.
The sizes are very similar.
It's really about the specs that are packed inside.
Hey, at $99, that's also expensive than most phones.
That's a quick look at the new Hisense Sero 7 tablets available at Walmart.
