Visual Land makes cheap tablets. You can pick up some models from Walmart or Amazon for as little as $40. Most of them aren’t very good tablets, but even a bad tablet in 2016 is probably a lot better than a $150 model from five or six years ago.
Anyway, it looks like Visual Land has a whole bunch of new tablets on the way, including a few models that help prove that last point: they might not be the best tablets money can buy, but they have some surprising features devices from this low-cost tablet maker.
I spotted a Bluetooth listing from Visual Land with names and a few basic details for 19 different tablets with screen sizes ranging from 9 inches to 13 inches.
Some models run Windows software, while others run Android. And some models are described as quad-core tablets, while others have octa-core chips… because even cheap tablets can have octa-core chips in 2016. Well, I assume they’re going to be cheap tablets. Pricing hasn’t been revealed yet for some models.
Here’s a quick overview:
- Prestige Elite 8: Quad-core Android tablet
- Prestige Elite 9 (ME-9QL and ME-9Q): Quad-core Android tablet
- Prestige Prime 9: Octa-core Android tablet
- Premier 9: 8.9″ Windows tablet
- Premier Prime 9: 8.9″ octa-core Windows tablet
- Prestige Elite 10 (ME-10ES, ME-10QL, ME-10QS, ME-10QD): quad-core Android tablets
- Prestige Elite 10 (ME-10SE): octa-core Android tablet
- Premier 10: Windows tablet
- Prestige Prime 10: Octa-core Android tablet
- Premier 11: Quad-core Android tablet
- Prestige Elite 11: Quad-core Android tablet
- Prestige Prime 11: Octa-core Android tablet
- Premier 13: Windows tablet
- Prestige Elite 13: Quad-core Android tablet
- Prestige Prime 13: Octa-core Android tablet
There are pages for a few of tablets with the same names as those listed above at the Visual Land website, but I suspect some of those listings are for older versions of the tablets. For example, there’s a $300 Windows tablet + keyboard cover called the Premier 10 which features an Intel Atom processors and Windows 8.1 software. But it seems odd to ship a new tablet in 2016 with Windows 8.1.
