Polaroid is not the best known name in Android world. The company actually launched a few Android-powered devices but none was successful enough to turn many heads. However, this may change come CES 2014 when Polaroid is going to showcase its new lineup of affordable Android tablets. The new series is comprised of three tablets, the Q7, Q8 and Q10, priced at $129.99, $149.99 and $179.99, respectively. Polaroid will reveal all crucial detail at CES in Las Vegas next week, however, today the company is giving us a preview of what to expect.
Polaroid Q7, Q8 and Q10 Tablets
As you might have guessed from the pricing, the Q series is aimed at budget-conscious customers meaning that you should not expect many advanced features and premium hardware. There is one thing, though, that will make you think twice before writing off the lineup. Namely, all three slates will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box which, combined with affordable price, is going to be the main selling point. With this move, the Polaroid tablets will be a step ahead of many high-end devices which are still running on Jelly Bean.
Android 4.4 KitKat aside, the Q tablets will not be very exciting. The slates will come in three sizes, as indicated by their names, with 7, 8 and 10-inch displays of unknown resolution. All three will be powered by quad-core processors, possibly Snapdragon 600, and will offer HDMI video output, Wi-Fi connectivity as well as front and rear camera thanks to which users will be able to ”capture their favorite memories, and share them via email and social media channels.” More details will be revealed at CES.
