Monster, well known for its former partnership with Beats By Dre headphones, looks to have entered the tablet game. What kind of shocks us is that these are not overpriced tablets, either. The M7, which features specs best kept in 2012, sports a price tag of just $150, while its big brother the M10, will come with a bit-heftier tag and better specs. Details on the M10 are still unavailable.
As for the M7, it features a 7″ HD (1280 x 800) display, a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, MicroSD expansion slot, Bluetooth 4.0, stereo speakers, Android 4.1, and comes in a huge variety of colors. Mind you all of these colors look extremely tacky, but that’s just our opinion. Maybe the colors wouldn’t bug us so much if they didn’t plaster on that humungous chrome logo. Oh well.
The M7 is available for purchase at your local Walmart for $150. Perfect for a kid’s Christmas present.
