Polaroid’s new budget quad core tablets run KitKat out of the box

4 months ago 15

The budget tablet market has been going absolutely crazy in the last two years with the release of the Amazon Kindle Fire line and Google’s Nexus tablets. The Nexus 7 has been quite a success, and everyone seems to be trying to achieve the same. But instead of creating powerful, high-end tablets with a low price tag, companies try to undercut Google’s pricing at any cost.

Polaroid’s newest announcement is the Q series of tablets, namely the Q7, Q8 (shown above), and Q10. These devices all run unnamed quad cores, but they distinguish themselves with Android KitKat 4.4, the newest version of Android some new devices still don’t come with. It’s nice to know you’re up-to-date even if you’re not spending much.

These devices will all sell between $129 and $179, with the most expensive model still besting the Nexus 7 in price by $50. Of course, you won’t get the same tablet experience or good looks. Would you buy a Polaroid tablet? Do you trust the company to keep its tablets updated? Leave a comment!
