In Pictures: 9 cheap Nexus 7 alternatives

Everyone from HP to Polaroid to Alcatel takes aim at Google's 7-inch tablet

Polaroid M7 WHY IT BEATS THE NEXUS 7: If Polaroid can actually deliver the M7 for the projected $129 price, it could be one of the cheapest tablets with a 7-inch, 1280-by-800 pixel screen running Android Jelly Bean. Otherwise, it only beats the Nexus 7 by including a microSD slot.

WHY IT DOESN'T: The M7 lacks an HDMI-out and a rear-facing camera -- but we say it should have one. After all, if you can't use this tablet to take pictures with it like an instant camera, then is it worthy of the Polaroid name?

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
