Fnac launches its own 7 and 10 inch tablets at a very low price

Fnac has entered through the big door in the tablet market for a couple of weeks. For this he has released two models of Fnac Tablet Spanish made with decent benefits but above all with a price that leaves your mouth open. The models will respond to the formats of 7 inches and 10 inches and will carry operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The technical specifications of both devices are more than acceptable. We commented before giving you the brutal prices.
The Fnac Tablet 7, 7-inch has a screen with 5-point touch panel LCD and technology IPS to widen the viewing angle with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It will carry a processor dual core ARM Cortex-A9 1.6 GHz accompanied by a Mali 400 quad-core graphics card. This combination is very likely and more if we see the price of the low-cost chip Rockchip RK3066 that is already giving a lot of war and that we will see in low-cost models from now on, as in this interesting clone of Nexus 10 that we are talking about.
As for the rest of the benefits it has 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB expandable storage per card micro SD another 32 GB. As for ports it has HDMI output, USB, 3.5 mm jack. Your Internet connectivity is via WiFi and other devices through Bluetooth 4.0.
It has a VGA front camera for video calling. All this for just 129.99 euros.
The Fnac Tablet 10, has a 10-inch screen at a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels With an X-Wide VA panel with features similar to an IPS, this 10 capacitive touch points. The processor is exactly the same and the graphics card too. Also carries 1 GB of RAM. But in this case the internal storage amounts to 16 GB. The ports and connectivity are also the same as those of his little sister. The only thing that changes is that it carries two cameras, being the front VGA and the rear of 2 MPX. The price of this will be 199.99 euros.
The operating system will have installed the native application Fnac eBooks where they can be purchased up to 50,000 titles.
As you can see, prices are a scandal and follow a strategy similar to Amazon tablets. Barnes & Noble with Nook HD and Kobo with Kobo Arc did something similar in the American market. It should be noted that they have been manufactured by the company BQ that has identical models in the hardware and with equal prices, specifically the Edison and Maxwell models.
