Grab a $49 Android tablet with your grocery shopping

Pendo is driving the cost of tablets way down. Again.

Coles is stocking a 7-inch Android tablet priced at $49. The slate is from Pendo, the same company that shook up the Windows tablet space with the $199 Pendo Pad 8.

Little is known about the Pendo Pad 7 on sale at Coles. The supermarket giant’s website claims the tablet has a 1GHz dual-core CPU, a 0.3 megapixel camera and a 7-inch screen.

Pendo’s official website doesn’t list the tablet; however, Officeworks is selling a similar Pendo tablet for the same price.

Officeworks is selling the PendoPad, a 7-inch Android tablet. We believe this is a variant of the tablet being sold at Coles due to inconsistencies in the specs.

The PendoPad on offer at Officeworks has a 7-inch, 800x400 resolution screen. There is a rear 2 megapixel camera and another 0.3 megapixel front cam.

Computing hardware includes a 1,2GHz dual-core Cortex-A7 CPU, a low 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. Memory can be expanded with microSD cards up to 32GB in size.

Both Pendo tablets are on sale now, with Coles selling its variant while stocks last.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
