|DiGix 7-inch Tablet for $100 at RADIO SHACK|
So I went to get my haircut a week ago and my barber told me there would be a thirty minute wait. I decided to wander around the mall and see if there were an early X-mas specials laying around. I wandered into the LAST place on earth I ever thought I would go in a public mall...RadioShack. As I looked at some of the smartphones, I asked the saleswoman if she had any tablets. She was totally clueless to what a tablet is (who hires these people?). We walked over to the check out counter and I noticed a kindle fire and a few other tablets in the glass display case. Scanning the prices, I noticed there was a tablet for $99. Now, if you know anything about #mr.ford, you know I am very...frugal when it comes to money and technology, but $100 for a 7-inch tablet? I had to see if it was real. I purchased the thing and took it home with me!
I really do a lot of work from my smartphone and latop, so I really wasn't sure if I needed a tablet at all at first. But for a hundred dollars, why not, eh? And compared to the already super low priced Nexus 7 tablet, this was a steal. I'm not big (right now) on storage and all that other technical jargon. Just give me something that does what it says. I was able to download all my free and paid apps via Google Play and they worked fine. There is no dual sided camera, but I'm cool with that. The screen is smooth and the entire tablet fits in my pants' pocket. I will admit that the return to screen button is a little loud when you push it, but other than that this is a KILLER buy for an ESL educator. On a side note, since I have been using my new tablet, I will admit, my phone screen does look a lot smaller now. Check below for all that technical jargon you might want to examine before you buy.
