New York-based manufacturer RCA is a common household name in electronics with products ranging from cable adapters to kitchen microwaves. Its latest consumer product is the budget Voyager III tablet as the successor to last year's Voyager II.
The Voyager III will be one of the most affordable Android tablets in the market beating even the Amazon Fire tablets in price point. At just $49 USD, the 7-inch handheld carries respectable hardware on paper. This includes a 1.3 GHz Intel Atom x3 quad-core SoC, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage with MicroSD support up to 128 GB, 2 MP front and rear cameras, and both Bluetooth 4.0 and WLAN connectivity.
A notable drawback will be the sub-720p display resolution of just 1024 x 600 for a PPI of 169. Fortunately, the underlying panel is IPS and not TN for users to use the device comfortably in both landscape and portrait orientations without color degradation.
The Voyager III is now shipping at Walmart.com and we recommend checking out the product page for additional technical details. Outside of the Voyager series, RCA will also launch two 12.2-inch Android 2-in-1 detachables for $250 to $450 USD alongside the 17.3-inch Horizon 17 Android AiO for under $400 USD all later this year.
