We all thought that Matrix one will cross the border of $100 when it will finally available for everyone, but the incredible device packs in with the lower price than expected. You can have this 7-inch tablet for just $90.
Direct Merchandise marketing might not have the most alluring name as tablet maker, but it raised a few eyebrows with its Matrix One in June. The gadget is going on sale ever so slightly past its late July target, but with a surprise price drop.
he Matrix One, for its part, could actually get the nod of approval from big box execs, however -- according to company reps, at least. And it wouldn't be a half-bad option at $90, shipping with Android 4.0.3, a 2-megapixel webcam, 1.5GHz Cortex A8 processor and an 800 x 480-pixel 7-inch capacitive display. Those specs also make their way to a nearly identical $130 flavor, which ups its budget counterpart's 512MB RAM and 4 gigs of storage to 1GB and 16GB, respectively, while keeping the other components intact.
There's also an HDMI port for outputting 1080p video to a TV, along with one full-size USB port, a mini-USB connector for syncing and updates, a power port and a micro-SD card slot, for adding up to 32 gigs of extra storage.
