The iPad for Penny Pinching Consumers AKA The Ghetto iPad


Who would have thunk that Walgreens would throw shots at Steve Jobs with a low cost iPad competitor, selling yet another product into the “sub-iPad” space? Well, we introduce you to the Maylong M-150, a 7″ tablet selling on Walgreens.com for $99 through today. It currently holds the crown for the lowest priced iPad competitor.

Here are the specs:

  • 533MHz VIA-designed VM8505+
  • 256MB of RAM
  • Android 1.6

The phrase, “you get what you pay for” comes into play here. Cosby Sweaters reccomends that you save that $99, figure out a way to multiply it by 6 and cop you one of dem Steve Jobs joints.
