Now, there have obviously already been tablets to come in at under $100 in the past, but all of them have been pretty terrible. Most of the tablets come from companies that you'd never recognize if you didn't trawl through the bargain bin at Walmart. On that point, Hisense recently dropped its Sero 7 tablet down to just $79. Kraznich didn't specify, but we're hoping that he's talking about tablets from reputable companies dropping below that price barrier.
Kraznich also didn't specify if the tablets would be running Android or Windows RT, but it would certainly be an aggressive move by Windows OEMs to drop a few 7-inch tablets for $99 this holiday season. We're still looking towards those sub-$200 Android laptops that Kraznich talked about before.
