Cheaper Tablets

dollars
Good News! Hewlett-Packard recently announced their entry in to the Android tablet market with their new HP Slate 7. Retail pricing is just $169, even cheaper than the $199 Nexus 7 or the $329 iPad mini. It’s slated for release in April 2013.
So why is this good news?
Because it lowers the cost of our system. Cloud Dine Systems uses tablets and cloud computing to power our point of sale system. The cheaper tablets makes our system even more affordable.
The best news? Tablets might get even cheaper.
In India, the government is providing subsidized Aakash 2 tablets to university students for Rs. 1,130 (about $20 US Dollars) and commercially for Rs. 3,999 (about $75 US Dollars). They are only available in India currently, but hopefully, in the next couple of years, similarly priced tablets could be available worldwide.
