Behold the N7,000 tablet

I thought it would interest you to know that there exist tablets that cost less than N10,000 in the market. I am not sure if they are in the Nigerian market already, but the Xelio tablet runs Android Jelly Bean, has a 7-inch capacitive display, 4GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 1.0 GHz processor, and 512MB of RAM. It costs $45 (USD). That is about N7,000. Amazing. Just N7,000.

Of course, you don’t expect top performance from this device. The processor is single core and RAM is only 512MB. Still, I can imagine that this has a place in the market – children, adults who need a tablet on a budget, or those who would just love to try out the tablet experience. Of course, we can expect that more powerful specs will one day filter to this price point.

If you want one, the Xelio is available online from Walmart.

  1. Wonderful!

    Likely bargain basement performance from a subterranean priced toy .

    Yep, good for knocking around by the kids..

  2. Like seriously just couldn’t have an iota of believe about the headline before making a click on it!
    It’s really looks cool’ I might even order for this o….” l?l

  3. Its actually been in the market for a while now, imported by some peeps. I presently use one with a 10.1 inch screen, same config as Galaxy Tab 2.
    So far its same Andriod platforms, serves an a cool alternative and most importantly much cheaper.

  4. Looks ok and real budget! At this rate tablet technology will be in most hands in Nigeria! What a way to bridge the digital divide! Not sure about those Jumia guys and their over-priced products. Saw the new HP Slate 8GB priced at less than $150 on Jumia for 45k! Pls do the maths with exchange rates and shipping + “reasonable” margins. Some of these online shopping sites just ride on the ignorance of most Nigerians to charge abnormal profit!

  5. The device looks really ok and that price is something else, that’s the price of most feature phones and some with less specs are even costlier.

    Hmmmm. provided that the screen is responsive and the components will not fail to soon with use, this tablet is a steal at this price point. There’s no doubt the performance will just be acceptable with those specs, the only issue is likely going to be durability. If it can ever serve for one year, it is enough for anyone who wants to test the Android turf before diving in fully with a much better device. impressive!
