A pack of gum, lip balm, a magazine or beef jerky might make for an eye-catching impulse buy in the check-out line at our local drugstore, but an Android tablet? Really? Well that's what consumers can expect these days as more and more electronics makers enter the tablet market and the price points continue to become more competitive -- and more discounted.

One manufacturer whose discount tablets can be purchased at retail drug chains around the U.S. is Craig Electronics Inc. The company markets a range of tablets -- 10 according to its Web site and many for less than $100 -- but prices vary widely by distributor and type of tablet. We'll look at some specifications and features of a few of the tablets if you want to compare them or give one a try.
