Polaroid made its entry into the tablet world last year with a debut 10in effort, and for 2013 the company is widening its focus to take in the smaller 7in tablet flavour too.
The Polaroid M10 and M7 saw the light of day at CES 2013 in Las Vegas today, and the biggest eye-opener is the fact that the smaller of the two tablets is been priced at just $129 for the US market.
For that money you get a fairly standard set of budget tablet features, including a Google Nexus 7-matching 1280 x 800 IPS display, a dual-core processor and 8GB of storage (expandable via microSD).
Being Polaroid you'd expect a decent level of camera quality, but you're restricted to just a 2MP front-facing camera. That said, you'd hope for some above-average software tools to get the most from it.
As for the 10-incher, you'll be stepping up to a quad-core processor, though it offers the same display resolution, which means a lower pixel density than the smaller version. In both cases, Android 4.1 is the operating system, and it remains to be seen if or when an upgrade to Android 4.2 (and potentially beyond) will be made available.
Polaroid hasn't officially released the specs for its pair of Android slates yet, so that's about all we know so far – well, that and the fact that they both have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but you'd expect that.
But it has revealed that they will be priced at $129 and $229 respectively when they go on sale in the US come the Spring. Fingers-crossed we might see them this side of the Atlantic too, but Polaroid hasn't said for sure yet.
