The Skytex Primer Pocket is a halfway decent portable media player (if you can deal with a lousy display) and a kind of crappy Android tablet. But you know what else it is? It’s dirt cheap.
The 4.3 inch portable device normally sells for just $89 — and today Groupon is offering the Primer Pocket with Android 2.2 Froyo for just $65. Or you can get its 7 inch cousin, the Skypad Alpha 7 with Android 2.3 Gingerbread for $129.
Unless you’re looking for something that can fit in your pocket, go for the 7 inch model. It has an ARM-based processor which means it can run most Android apps, unlike the Primer Pocket which has a MIPS-based CPU.
