$90 Matrix One Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet now available

Matrix Tablet

Sporting a rather attractive $90 price tag, the Matrix One is up for grabs with Android 4.0 and a 7-inch 800 x 480p capacitive touchscreen. The company claims that the device fits the bill when it comes to a powerful, budget-friendly and feature-rich tablet option.

Well, whether we take their word for it or not, this slab of Android goodness does have a bunch of interesting attributes. Looking past ICS, it’s got a 1.5GHz chip and a profile that apparently measures less than half an inch thick. There’s no mention about why Matrix refers to their tablet as a completely customizable one, though buyers can pick from color options of white, black, pink and blue.

In the company’s own words, “Even before the Matrix One made its official launch, word of the revolutionary device spread like wildfire – resulting in unit sales of 40,000 with no advance promotion whatsoever to top corporations and educational institutions.”

Android 4.0 Tablets

In terms of memory, the 16GB ICS device is clubbed with 1GB RAM, while the 4GB one arrives with 512MB RAM. Additionally, the hoarding capacity can be expanded up to 32GB through the microSD card slot. A 2MP front camera, speakers, a headphone jack and a microphone are packed into the chassis. Lastly, Wi-Fi as well as ports for USB, mini-USB and HDMI answer to connectivity needs.

Whatever else it might hide under the hood, there’s no denying that the price and onboard ICS are the tablet’s most appealing aspects. The 4GB Matrix One price is $89.99, while the 16GB version sells for $129.99. Both can be covered by one or two years of warranty depending on whether customers wish to cough up $19.99 or $24.99, respectively.
