HiSense Sero 8 lands for 29 at Walmart

HiSense announced that its 8-inch Sero 8 Android tablet had just dropped at Walmart for just $129. The affordable 8-inch tablet is able to keep its price low with some trade-offs while still running Android 4.4 KitKat.

Unlike the current crop of 7- or 8-inch tablet with 1080p or higher resolution screens, the 8-inch screen on the Sero 8 will clock in at 1280 X 800 pixels. Good news is that the display supports IPS technologt. The tablet will run Android 4.4 KitKat, which is powered by a quad-core 1.6 GHz CPU and 1 GB of RAM.

The Sero 8 will have 16 GB of on-board storage and a micro SD card slot for expansion. The tablet will have front- and rear-facing cameras, mini HDMI port for connecting the tablet to your HDTV to watch VUDU movies and other content, Bluetooth 3.0, mini USB port, and access to Google's Play ecosystem.

For comparison, the Nexus 7 this year from Google costs $100 more at $229 and Apple's non-Retina Display version of the iPad mini retails for $299.
