All this elicits from me is a big yawn.

Exactly my sentiments. Really, who can get excited about a budget tablet running outdated Jellybean software, when even Polaroid's Q series of tablets, namely the Q7, Q8, and Q10 all run Android KitKat 4.4 out of the box, the newest version of Android that even some high-end new devices still don’t include. It’s nice to know you’re up-to-date, even if you’re not spending much. Yeah, listen up. These devices will all sell between $129 and $179, with the most expensive model still besting the Nexus 7 in price by $50. Of course, you won’t get the same tablet experience or good looks.
