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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
