With over 50 million tablets sold this year alone, you would think that economies of scale and market forces would be driving tablet prices down. For the most part, that is not the case. A good 10.1-inch Android tablet is $400 to $500 dollars. That price hasn't changed since the iPad first came out.
Now there is an alternative. A new company called Tronity has designed what they claim is the most open tablet ever with a goal of bringing a full-featured 10.1-inch tablet for about $200. They are launching their effort by crowdsourcing fundraising on Indiegogo. They are offering a pre-early bird special of just $169 for the first version of the Root 101, which will ship (for free) in August. I already bought mine. You should go get yours too!
Why did I buy one of these tablets? Actually, it was for several reasons. One is that it sounds like a great deal for the
price. The specs on this tablet, while not quite up to say a Nexus 10, are pretty impressive. From the indiegogo website:
