For what it's worth, this is an excellent price for an entry level Android tablet. The B1-A71 was only unveiled earlier this year (at CES in Las Vegas) and comes with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. It has a dual-core Mediatek MTK8317 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz, 512MB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a 7in 1,024 x 600 pixel display, Wi-Fi, a front facing camera (but no rear one), a microSD card slot and a battery life of up to five hours.

Arguably, this is no Google Nexus 7 but then again it costs less than half the price as well and will be more than adequate for mundane tasks. You can check out our review of the Google Nexus 7 tablet here.
