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.
