XTex My Tablet 7 – feature-rich 7-inch tablet selling for $150


The rumored $150 Google Nexus tablet just found itself a new competitor months before its supposed release. XTex recently announced a 7-inch Android tablet that sells for the same price – My Tablet 7. Not only does it sell $50 cheaper than Kindle Fire, it also packs more specs for usability. And because it is a direct competitor to the upcoming Google Nexus tablet, it runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in its pure form.

Its OS alone is a surprising spec for a cheap tablet. My Tablet 7 runs Android 4.0.3, the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich. UI doesn’t have any skin and gives a pure ICS experience out of the box. And for just $150 it also gets you a 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of internal storage, and 1GB of RAM.

This trio of specs entail several key features on users-end. Having 1GB RAM means it’s a capable mulitasker. It can run several apps at once as well as applications that require a gigabyte of RAM. A single-core 1.5GHz is enough to power graphic-intensive games available for download at Google Play. With 16GB internal storage, it can store a large number of apps, music, and photos among others.

Memory is not limited to 16GB though. XTex My Tablet 7 has an SD card slot for expandable storage. Presence of an HDMI output means you can use it for streaming videos to compatible devices. The extra 2-megapixel front-facing camera is something that will come in handy for taking self-portraits and video chat. All other specs like screen resolution and rear camera were no longer detailed but from what we know, My Tablet 7 offers more features and function than Amazon Kindle and for a cheaper price too.

In spite of great hardware and an affordable price, My Tablet 7 may have a hard time competing in a market. XTex needs to launch an all-out campaign and brand their 7-inch tablet well. If you’re willing to wait a couple of months more, hold on to your $150. Asus is rumored to be working on a similarly Google Nexus tablet running Ice Cream Sandwich. But for those of you in a hurry to get a cheap tablet for everyday use, XTex My Tablet 7 seems to be a viable option.

  1. Don’t be tricked!!!!
    Ok I ordered this Tablet in March and didn’t receive it for 63 days, lets start there. It was supposedly manufactured in Texas, but I really don’t know, unless the company ordered overseas parts and assembled them stateside. The screen is defective, hotspot that will send ripples in a 1-1.5 inch diameter circle even touching the back side. The corners are almost completely unresponsive, as with the sides and top and bottom. That was enough for me, I emailed to replace/return/refund this item and was ignored. After a month of trying I’ve given up. Now I have to laugh, it’s so faulty that I show it off to my friends as my reason to stick with Chinese products. Besides the terrible screen and touch response, it IS unlocked, but if you dare to change it i.e. change wallpaper, stop ANY of the bloatware,an overclock of 100mhz ( very small), it freezes turns off or boot-loops. Or even turning off the WiFi causes my lil’ tab to freak out and go into a boot-loop. So left at stock I was able to install quite a few apps, no NO GAMES at all. I am not talking about anything intense, just Scrabble, Monopoly, or Uno for my kids. . . no go, another boot-loop. The WiFi jumps from connected to unconnected @ work so often I can’t use it, the plastic casing is cheap and creaks when i hold it, the same using the corners of the screen my stylus doesn’t get a response in the corner until it makes the plastic case make noise. I would avoid this item like the plague. there are so, so many cheaper choices right here that work better. I now have an Ainol Novo Aurora, Ainol elf and elf 2. All cost less all are made better, all are faster and much more functional.
