$100 Maylong M-150 Android tablet now on sale at Walgreens

Once thought to be a gadget unicorn, the elusive sub-$100 is ready to make a splash at… Walgreens? In an interesting turn of events, it looks like Walgreens is indeed the first U.S. retailer to make a $99.99 Android tablet widely available. Built by personal navigation device (PND) maker Maylong, the M-150 is a 7-inch tablet with 256MB of RAM, microSD support and Wi-Fi connectivity. Of course sacrifices had to be made in order to reach the magic $99.99 price point. The tablet sports an 800 x 480-pixel resistive touchscreen display, so it uses a stylus for input. It also has a 400MHz processor and the now-ancient Android 1.6 operating system on board. As a tablet for less savvy users looking mainly for a light Web browsing tool and maybe a simple eBook reader, the Maylong M-150 could be just what the doctor ordered. Hit the jump for more specs and a link to order up this mysterious budget slate, which is only available online.
