The tablet market grows at an amazing rate and this trend is being maintained thanks to cheap tablets and mini tablets, some selling for $50 or even less. Datawind is a Canadian company already selling ultra-cheap tablets in India that decided to enter the US market and announced the availability of three cheap UbiSlate tablets, the cheapest one being the $38 UbiSlate 7Ci.

While none of the technical specs and features of this tablet can be considered more than low-end, Datawind's slate delivers a lot for its price. These are the slate's main specs: 

  • Processor: 1 GHz Cortex-A8
  • Memory/Storage: 512 MB RAM; 4 GB internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 7-inch TFT capacitive
  • Camera: VGA webcam
  • Connectivity: WiFi, micro USB
  • Operating system: Android 4.0.4

The UbiSlate 7Ci only offers WiFi connectivity, but the UbiSlate 7C+ also packs mobile Web capabilities at $80 without Datawind's data plan and $100 with Internet access.

The most powerful tablet unleashed now by the Canadian company into the United States is the UbiSlate 3G7, priced at $130 on its own and $150 with one year of Internet access. Unfortunately, its specs are still low-end, featuring a 1.2 GHz Cortex A8 processor, 512 MB of memory and 4 GB of internal storage.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
