$51 Android tablet offers 2160p video
The other day we told you about an Android tablet that costs $50 to make that Indian students are purchasing with a government subsidy for $35. There might be another low priced tablet that beats it as the ESER A10 Android tablet costs just $51. For that price, you're not going to get the latest quad-core processor or a Retina display, but what you do get is a more than serviceable tablet with Android 2.3.4 installed. The 7 inch display offers WVGA resolution, a single-core 1.2GHz BoxChip CPU under the hood, and 4GB of native storage. The latter can be bumped up thanks to the inclusion of a microSD slot.

Other features which you might not expect from a $51 tablet include Wi-Fi, an HDMI out port, and a front-facing camera. For those who want 3G connectivity, a USB dongle is available. The most interesting line on the specs list is the 2160p video that the tablet can decode. Those who have used the tablet say it is responsive and smooth and the screen has the brightness and color saturation you would expect from a more expensive tablet.

Sure, the ESER A10 isn't the most loaded tablet on the market, but for $51 you can't do better.

51 dollars. That is just insane. It reminds me of when HP was selling their touchpad for 100 dollars. Count me in.

Still way more reasonable than buy an Ipad for ebooks / etextbooks
