Remember the $150 Android tablet that showed up at KMart? How about the $100 netbook at CVS. Well, they’ve got company in the discount store computer space. Meet the $100 Maylong M-150 7 inch Android tablet available exclusively from Walgreens.com.

This little guy is really nothing to write home about, but it is cheap. It has a 7 inch 800 x 480 pixel resistive touschreen display, 802.11b/g WiFi, Ethernet and USB connectivity with a dongle, speakers, a camera, microSD card slot (or T-Flash card slot, as it’s called in this case), 2GB of flash storage, and 256MB of RAM.

The Maylong tablet has a VM8505+ ARM9 processor, which appears to be a 300MHz or 400MHz CPU. Like I said, nothing to write home about.

The tablet doesn’t include access to the Google Android Market, but the product description does suggest that you can “download and install custom Google Android applications,” so it sounds like there might be some sort of third party app store.

The product listing also points out that it comes with a web browser, eBook reader, and apps such as an alarm clock, contact app, and calendar. I know, exciting, right? In fact, the Walgreens web site also suggests using the tablet as a digital photo frame.

The folks at Android Tablet already got their hands on the little Maylong M-150, and they’ve posted an unboxing video which you can check out after the break.

  1. …and is sold out. Wonder how it would work as a picture frame–I’ve always wanted my frame to be a bit smarter, show EXIF, etc…

  2. Love the stolen IE trademark and logo too. Microsoft is going to enjoy this as well.

  3. What’s the OS? I think it must be Android 1.6. Well, it’s true that Android 1.6 is a little bit of out-dated, but it still can handle normal
    routine tasks. It’s not so bad. For $100, I know there is an Android 2.0 tablet. https://bit.ly/agwlce

  4. Would have been more interesting to see it working. I wonder if this is similar to the Augen in any way? Again, it’s a cheap Android tablet, not unlike the ones mentioned in the past. Slow CPU is going to make the experience subpar IMO, not to mention the need for the stylus. I’d still like to check one out to satisfy my curiousity, but I don’t expect it to match up to either the iPad or any of the higher-end Android tablets out or coming out.

    Speaking of the CVS smartbook, I checked my local CVS and they didn’t have it. I guess it’s only in select locations. :-/

  5. I love this because it’s a fake. They stole an image of an iPad (notice the trademarked Home button), ruined the aspect ratio so that the frame is not symmetric, and then made up bogus app icons. See the app called “File Browser?” Its icon is actually the icon for Air Sharing, an iOS app by Avatron Software.

    Apple Legal should enjoy this one.

  6. Yes you get what you pay for, but for that kinda of dollars, if it works what more can you ask for? Web, email, games etc are what 95% of users want
