Get Your Geek On: Meet the $50 Android Tablet

The world’s cheapest tablet has gone on sale and it’ll set thrifty consumers back just $50.

It’s called the Datawind UbiSlate 7Ci and it’s a basic 7-inch device that was originally launched in India as an affordable way for students to get access to the internet. Now, the slate has been made available for the world market from their website.

While the price is almost too good to be true, the cost reflects the specs of the Android device with a screen that cannot match the sharpness of more premium tablets and relatively sluggish performance. But is does boast a storage that can be expanded by microSD card up to a none-too-shabby 32GB. There’s built-in Wi-Fi too. . .
