Walgreens offers $99 Android tablet from Maylong
The Walgreens online store now offers a $99 Android tablet, the Maylong M-150. The 7-inch tablet runs Android 1.6, and features Wi-Fi only connectivity.

The tablet, which is a blatant visual imitation of an Apple iPad, is powered by a 400MHz ARM9 processor. It features a 7-inch resistive touchscreen, 256MB of RAM, stereo speakers, and a flash memory slot. The M-150 also has a dongle to allow USB connections.

Physical buttons include a menu/home button on the front, and power and volume switches on the sides. In terms of software, the device includes a full browser, an e-reader app, YouTube, and a media player.

Granted, this is no Samsung Galaxy Tab, but it is a great low-cost alternative for those who just want basic Internet connectivity in a tablet. It also serves as a fun alternative for kids who want a tablet, but wouldn't fully utilize (or properly care for) a more powerful, network-connected device.
