Monster throws its own line of Android tablets into the arena

Another day, another company making its own Android tablet

Android's race to the bottom seems to have inspired companies of all sorts to release their own phone or tablet device. Now you can count Monster among them.

The company behind HTC's Beats audio hardware, as well as the marked-up audio cables you see at your nearest brick-and-mortar, has announced its own series of Android tablets, sold exclusively at Walmart.com.

The company launched a 7-inch version called the M7, which comes with a proprietary Bluetooth-enabled feature called Time Correct. It also features a 1.5GHZ dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, miniHDMI, a 2.0MP front-facing camera and a 5MP rear-facing camera, and 16GB of storage, as well as a MicroSD expansion slot.

The M7 comes in varying colors and is available for $149. A 10.1-inch tablet, dubbed the M10, has all but been announced, but there are no details about it yet available.

It's unclear why Monster would venture into Android territory when it's been wholly focused on audio hardware and input. For the most part, this is just another entry into an already over-saturated market of Android gadgets.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
