If you thought that Polaroid were just going to show off a rugged tablet for kids, then you would be mistaken as they are also going to release a couple of serious traditional tablets as well. The Polaroid M7 and M10 tablets will both run on Android Jelly Bean out of the box and as you would have guessed are 7 and 10 inches in size, which you’ll be able to see for yourself in the visual reviews below.
Firstly let’s look at the Polaroid M7 tablet with its 1,280 x 800 display, the first thing you’ll want to know is what powers the tablet, and that answer would be the A9 1.6GHz dual-core processor, which is helped along with the pretty standard 1GB of RAM. You’ll notice from the hands-on video below that the M7 is pretty responsive, but that’s not the best part, it’s the Polaroid M7 price, as it is expected to cost just $129 when released in the spring.
Next up is the Polaroid M10 tablet; now one would assume that the larger sibling would have better performance, so imagine our surprise to hear that it is a little slower. This could have something to do with running the A7 CPU and 1GB of RAM, instead of 2GB of RAM at least and a better performing processor.
Most of the Polaroid M10 tablet specs seem pretty much the same as the smaller M7, it’s just like Polaroid cut a few corners just to try and keep the price down and save power on their larger tablet, which is just $100 more. This means that the Polaroid M10 tablet price will be $229 when released in conjunction with the M7.
It’s clear to see that these are just cheap tablets that will not pose a serous threat to the likes of the iPad, Galaxy Tab 10.1 etc, but Polaroid looks to have their sights set on the Nexus 7 and 10, but the question is, do these tablets have what it takes?
