If you are looking for cheap tablets that boast high performance, you may wind up empty if you check out a few local stores here and there. Just look at the leaders in the tablet market like the Apple iPad which continues to dominate as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab family which takes up a lot of market share in Android tablets. The Kindle Fire has a nice balance between price and performance but not everyone may be willing to shell out $200 for modified Android operating system that is more focused on eBooks. There are certainly cheaper tablets that give a pretty solid Android experience.
One of these tablets is known as the NATPC M009S and it has no intention of competing with those higher-priced tablets. Instead, it is taking on a bunch of lesser known manufacturers that strive to offer tablets at very cheap prices. However, a lot of the tablets fail in delivering any form of usable experience.
Some tablets have low screen resolution while others are simply not fast enough. The NATPC M009S is well equipped with the VIA8650 processor clocked at 800 MHz. This may sound unimpressive on paper but it is an excellent choice for powering a small 7-inch display with an 800x480 screen resolution. The screen may be resistive but it manages to deliver enough performance power to run Android 2.2 Froyo and many other apps and games properly.
If you want something that is a bit faster than the NATPC M009S, you can go with the Cube tablet which has an Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and a more powerful Cortex-A8 1.2 GHz processor. This goes to show that cheap tablets sacrifice on design a bit just so they can perform much faster.
