Foxconn iWonder Android tablet to sell for just $100 (in China)
Looking to spend some quality time with Google Android, but don’t feel like plunking down the cash for a smartphone and then shelling out more money each month for a data plan? I already told you about one relatively affordable option this week: The Archos 5 Internet tablet which starts at just $250. But Taiwanese PC maker Foxconn has an Android-powered tablet that cuts that price in half… twice.
The Foxconn iWonder tablet is a $100 tablet that runs Google Android 1.6. It has a 10.1 inch, 800 x 600 pixel resistive touchscreen display and a Marvell processor. You don’t get 3G connectivity with this budget tablet, but you do get WiFi.
The plastic case looks a little Fisher Price, and guarantees that the iWonder tablet isn’t going to take much market share away from Apple’s upcoming iPad which is a bit more refined looking. But it’s hard to ask for more from a $100 tablet.
