If you are looking for the best budget tablet to buy in 2014
With a 7" 5-point capacitive touch screen, this DigiLand DL701Q tablet makes it easy to navigate features and view media in crisp detail. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you access streaming media (NetFlix) and more with ease.
, one serious contender has to be the DigiLand DL701Q 7-inch 8GB Black tablet
. It is available for a low price this month, but more importantly the DigiLand 7-inch DL701Q Tablet specs are impressive too and almost comparable to popular high-street brands.
What I Liked (DL701Q):
♦ Price ($39-$49) | (I purchased 16 units for family & friends)
♦ 1.3GHz quad-core processor
♦ FM tuner (Real Radio, not Internet-Radio)
♦ Micro USB 2.0 port & Secure digital slot
♦ BlueTooth, GPS, Fast Wi-Fi
What I Did Not Like (DL701Q):
♦ Case not included (Got one at the dollar-tree)...
♦ Internal 512MB RAM (RCA has 1GB, but missing Bluetooth)
(RCA has/had issues with battery exploding, due to charging issues!)
♦ Screen when viewed from side (when watching movie with friend)
One of the best budget tablet to buy in 2014, is the DigiLand 7-inch DL701Q Quad-Core 8GB Tablet. It is available for a low price this month, but more importantly the specifications are impressive too and almost comparable to popular high-street brands.
Usually, when we look for budget tablets we are not expecting to see a quad-core processor included. At the very most, dual-core is usually the favorable spec among retailers and manufacturers.
However, the DigiLand 7-inch tablet (DL701Q
) is unique in the fact that not only is it available for a cut price, it comes with a quad-core
1.3Ghz Mediatek processor as well which is fantastic.
But you can get it for even cheaper than that on Black Friday. Best Buy’s Black Friday preview ad shows the DigiLand DL701Q for $39 and says the price is valid November 27-29, 2014.
Do not purchase the (Dual-Core) (DL700D
) for $46... You want to get the (Quad-Core) (DL701Q
); with 8GB for only $49 (before taxes).
It’s pretty surprising the number of hardware upgrades this tablet has received and yet the price remains the same. They doubled the storage space, improved the screen resolution, upgraded the processor to quad-core, and they added Bluetooth, GPS, an FM tuner and a 2.0 MP rear camera.
Like the previous model, it runs Android 4.4 KitKat. Preloaded apps include Google Play, Gmail, Maps, Chrome, Google Music, Google Search and others.
All in all, you could do worse for $49. (Battery Explodes on RCA Tablet's
There’s also a 10-inch DigiLand tablet
with basically the same exact specs for $99. Too bad they didn’t up the screen resolution, though.
