Polaroid announced that it will be adding a new lineup to its tablet offerings. The Polaroid Q series will be unveiled at the CES 2014 and will come in sizes starting at 7 inches, 8 inches, and 10.1 inches. The Q7, Q8 and Q10 Android tablets will all have Wi-Fi enabled, sport a quad-core processor, and will use Android 4.4 KitKat.
Polaroid President and CEO Scott W. Hardy said that “Tablets are changing the way consumers use and share their favorite media and memories, and Polaroid’s robust line of tablets is allowing more consumers to share with on-the-go convenience. Our Q Series provides consumers with super-fast quad core processing speeds allowing for faster performance and less wait times when watching movies, or playing games. In addition the Q series’ sleek design and affordable price point make it a great choice.”
All three models are Google Certified devices which mean that they will have access to the Google Play Store and other services.
The Q Series is designed for media and sharing on the go. It features an extended battery life that lasts longer than the average Android tablet. There’s an HDMI port for you to connect the device to a larger TV display. There’s also a front mounted speaker system which is useful when watching movies with the device. We will provide more details on the specifications of each device as soon as it is revealed at CES 2014.
This upcoming lineup is being manufactured by Southern Telecom, an authorized Polaroid licensee. Prices will start at $129 up to $179. Expect to see these new models to it the market by April 2014.
Polaroid isn’t exactly the brand anyone would choose when buying tablets considering that their previous models had mediocre specs but then were priced cheap. The Q Series may change the way we look at the company as it offers better specs and is priced affordably.
