Sears.com is now offering at least 3 inexpensive Android tablets that appear to be based on designs we’ve seen from Chinese electronics makers. Sears isn’t actually offering the tablets in stores, and the web site says they’re actually sold by a third party distributor called Tech Galore. But if you’re in the market for a 7 to 10 inch Android tablet for $130 to $250, it looks like there’s a new shopping option — although I might hold out on placing orders until I’ve seen some customer reviews. Some of the information about these tablets seems a bit… iffy.

Here’s an overview of the tablets Sears is offering:

While Sears lists the first tablet as “Elken,” I’m pretty sure the name should actually be Eken. The APad 10 inch tablet also shows a picture of the German WePad from Neofonie, which isn’t actually shipping yet — and which is expected to cost considerably more than the $250 asking price. The 10 inch APad also shows a $250 price tag when you search for Android tablets, but the actual product page has no information about the price or how to order.

  1. We should all expect that for Black Friday one of the ‘door busters’ on offer from all electronics stores will be a cheap Chinese Android tablet rebadged with a ‘store brand’.

  2. Sears is owned by k-mart, the company that recently had a rum on these cheep tablets. It makes sense that it would seek greater distribution for what amounts to a really nice PMP.
