We heard a while back that Walmart would launch its own-brand cheap Android tablets that would compete with Amazon’s Fire tablets which are the best cheap Android tablets. Released under its in-house Onn brand, Walmart is selling one 8 inch and two 10.1 inch tablets. Prices start at just $64. Should Amazon be worried? We will see.
The 8 inch model is the cheapest at $64. There’s a 10.1 inch model for $79 while another 10.1 inch model has a detachable keyboard for $99. All three tablets have a 800×1280 pixel resolution display, a 1.3GHz quadcore processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage. There’s also a 2 megapixel rear and 0.3 megapixel front camera.
These are not for people who are looking to get serious work done on their tablets, but are a good option for kids or for the casual user to check their email and watch YouTube with.
Unlike Amazon’s Fire tablets, they come with Android 9 Pie out of the box with a fairly bland build. The Fire tablets run a heavily forked version of Android. Also, Walmart’s tablets come with the Google Play Store and all of Google’s other services like Google Maps, Duo, Gmail, and more. Walmart’s tablets are now available for purchase online and from Walmart locations.
