Haleron has announced that its iLet HAL 7 inch tablet is now shipping. The iLet HAL features a 600Mhz VIA ARM-based CPU, an 800 x 480 pixel display, 802.1/bg/ WiFi, 2GB of storage, 128MB of RAM, and a SDHC card slot that supports up to 32GB of additional storage.

It looks like the HAL comes in two sizes. You can get a version with a 7 inch display or an 8 inch model that looks strikingly similar to a certain Apple tablet that’s due out soon. The 8 inch version will be available in May. Both the 7 and 8 inch models run Google’s Android operating system and include 2 USB ports, mic, headphone, and Ethernet jacks.

The 8 inch model also appears to have a SIM card slot for an optional 3G modem.

The 7 inch iLet HAL is available for order for $229. You can drop the price to $179 if you order 100 or more units, while an order of 5 or more will bring the price to $199 per tablet.

Update: I should point out that Haleron says the tablet is now shipping. But I’ve never read a single product review of a Haleron product, despite the fact that the company says it has released several netbooks, a smartbook, and now a tablet over the past year or two. I’ve reached out to Haleron several times to see if I can get a demo unit for review, but have yet to receive one. So place orders with caution — and if you have ever purchased a Haleron product, please let us know in the comments. I’m certainly hoping that this is a real product and not just a scam.

  1. Same here – ordered an iLet 7 in march; still waiting. If I had read this article before, I would have saved some money.

    And I should have been more suspicious: in march there was no way to pay via credit card, so you had to pay via moneybookers… man, looking back now this seem very obvious.

    To anyone else: don’t buy!!!

  2. I was going to order one of the tablets but after several emails to them asking what type of shipping they use and no response. I sure wont be ordering sounds like Haleron is a scam.

    1. Most of those link back to a single site, and the evidence is mostly that we
      haven’t seen physical reviews or heard much about the company. I’m still
      waiting for confirmation from someone that Haleron took their money and
      didn’t provide any physical product. It sounds like some of our readers have
      had problems, but since Haleron claims its tablet products only just began
      to ship, that’s not surprising.

      I’m curious to know whether anyone tried to order one of the netbooks
      Haleron was supposedly offering last year.

      But I will be more cautious from now on with Haleron announcements, and I’ll
      make sure to include a disclaimer if and when I do write future posts unless
      someone can show me that Haleron actually has begun to ship products.

  3. I would be very cautious of any company that puts bank transfer information on their website. Too bad, the product doesn’t look bad.

  4. Ordered a Mini Hal, also getting runaround.
    Thanks for reporting to authorities.

  5. I paid for a Haleron iLet 10″ tablet and have not received it. They keep giving me the runaround. This is clearly a scam. I have notified the FBI in the US and recommend strongly that nobody deal with Haleron – this is obviously an elaborate plan to con people out of their money. I hope this post gets forwarded as much as possible on any tech site because I am positive that I have been conned by this company.
