Walgreens is entering into the tablet market place with entry-level 7″ Android powered tablet PC. The surprising part is that it is priced at only $99.99 plus $4.99 shipping. Unfortunately the tablet is not sold in stores, which causes a problem for me. I like to play with my toys before I buy them. So what do you get for your $100 bucks?

The tablet is made by a company called Maylong. So who is Maylong? I did a Google and found a web site for the company. The tablet comes with a one year warranty. There are also phone numbers for an RMA return as well as locations where the tablet can be purchased. I contacted their sales department via email and asked to receive a test model of the device. I will let you know the results of my request.

If anyone has purchased the Maylong tablet, share your thoughts and experience with us.
