Many low-end Android tablets have found their way in different conventions in the first half of 2012. However, these under $200 and under $100 tablets often don’t make it to store shelves in the US and in Europe, eventually disappearing from public view with their developers starting again from step one.
There is at least one tablet that might be able to make an appearance Stateside, according to their own company reps. The Matrix One tablet shows a bit of promise, possibly meeting big shot execs standards to make it to retail stores in the country.
Matrix One comes preinstalled with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 which is not bad for a budget tablet. Other specs include a 7-inch 800 x 480 capacitive touchscreen display, 1.5GHz A8 Cortex processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, and a 2 megapixel front facing camera. Connectivity comes in the form of one HDMI port, one full-sized USB port, one mini-USB port, and a micro SD card slot that allows you to add up to 32GB of storage.
The Matrix One won’t probably be able to go against many brand-named tablets on the market but for the price of around a hundred dollars, it can be an affordable slab for those who are on a tight budget. The base price of the Matrix One is $99 while an upgraded version with 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage will cost you $149. Now, the only thing we need to know is whether or not it will be able to penetrate American and European markets.
