7-inch Android tablet for $45 from Walmart (Hacker News)

From: Phil Shapiro 

Hacker News is currently listing a 7-inch inch Android tablet from Walmart for $45 new. 


I don't buy stuff from Walmart, but I do want Walmart to get a huge number of web hits 
from this Hacker News listing. Walmart analyze their web traffic very carefully -- and they might choose at some time to offer an Android tablet as a loss leader -- for like $35. That could embarrass Apple that an Android tablet costs less than a case for an iPad. 

Stop on by to visit Hacker News this evening (Sunday) if you have a moment.

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ It's amazing how cheaply these things can be made. I am almost willing to drop $40 bucks on this thing just to tinker with it. But, right now all my spare cash goes into renting a Cessna 172.
