Polaroid isn’t typically a name that comes to mind when people think of Android. While the company has released a few Android-powered cameras, it has never fully embrace the operating system. Times are changing, however, and the iconic company is doing its best to survive in a new world. At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada this week, Polaroid announced two new Android tablets that look to compete with Google’s (GOOG) Nexus devices.
The 7-inch and 10-inch devices both include 1280 x 800-pixel IPS displays, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a microSD slot and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The smaller M7 tablet is equipped with a dual-core processor and 8GB of internal storage, while the M10 features a quad-core CPU, 16GB of internal storage, HDMI and a 5-megapixel rear camera.
Perhaps the most attractive feature of the new tablets is their pricing: the M7 is being offered for $129 and the M10 can be had for just $229. Both tablets will be released this spring.
