$169 Android 4.0 Tablet?

     Looking for an inexpensive tablet that actually runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)?  If the Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook Color is still too much, Idolian sells an inexpensive tablet that maybe priced right.  Unlike most low price tablets which are of poor quality, Idolian is based in the U.S.A. and offers a one year warranty.  So what does the Idolian TurboTab Z offer?  Let's find out...

     First, who is Idolian?  They are a tablet PC manufacturer and distributor with its offices in Newport Beach, CA, Arkansas and South Korea.  Idolian.com is a division of Idolian Mobile Inc, which is a tablet PC wholesaler and retailer in the USA and worldwide.  Idolian sells various Android tablets but their TurboTab Z is the only one, at the moment, that runs Android 4.0.  Some of their other tablets will be available for Android 4.0 upgrades eventually.


From their website, here is the TurboTab's specs:

     There is no GPS or BlueTooth.  There is a front facing camera which is 1.3MP, not great but what do you expect for this price point.  For this price point, it offers decent hardware.  Of course, we would recommend to always spend more to get quality.  However if price point is very important, you may want to check this tablet out.

     We will see if we can get a table to review from Idolian.
