Tablet PCs can be so expensive! If all you want to do is check Facebook and play Angry Birds, do you really need to shell out a few hundred dollars to do it? Evolution World Wide Limited – makers of the EvoMax tablet – doesn't think that you do. The EvoMax Android tablet starts at $129, and you can find it on sale for as low as $69 [source: EvoMax].
EvoMax is one of the lowest-priced tablets on the market today. In fact, the only tablet that I could find at a lower price was the Ubislate7 -- another Android tablet -- that clocks in at $41. The Ubislate7's bargain pricing is thanks to subsidies from the Indian government designed to make tablets accessible for education purposes [source: Bauer].
The EvoMax doesn't have any subsidies backing its production, so how do they keep the price so low? According to reviews, Evolution World Wide Limited cut some corners on power, speed, and battery life to produce such an inexpensive tablet. Whether that's going to be a problem for you as a user really depends on what you're planning to do with your tablet. The EvoMax probably doesn't have the power for serious gaming, but if all you want to do is check your e-mail and browse the web and don't mind sacrificing a little speed to save a buck, the EvoMax could work out just fine.
To get an idea of whether the EvoMax will work for you, you really need to look at the specs and features and decide if it feels like a good deal for the price or if you're better off saving up for a more powerful tablet.
