Crap store plans crap tablet
Bloomberg is reporting that Walmart is “moving into iPad territory,” in its plans to make a children’s tablet. This clearly low-end device from a retailer known for its cheapness somehow constitutes — and I feel the need to quote Bloomberg again here — an “iPad rival.”
Details about the new device are still sparse, but a Walmart spokesperson confirmed the company is working on the product. The children’s tablet will launch under Walmart’s ONN electronics brand, be manufactured by an unnamed Chinese company, and is expected to run Android.
