The Sero 7 tablets got cheaper last week and I missed it

Amid competition from newer, faster tablets like the 2013 model Nexus 7, Hisense cut the price of its low-cost 7-inch Android tablets. The low-end Sero 7 now costs $79, and while the reviews on that tablet aren’t all that great, it’s much better than last year’s $79 tablet. The Sero 7 Pro, which I own, now costs $129.

They’re imperfect tablets–the Sero 7 Pro, even with its recent update, still crashes from time to time when I use a keyboard with it–but they were fine for the money at their old prices, and at their new prices, it’s hard to go wrong. I expect that eventually they’ll attract enough third-party development that there will be ROMs available to address their shortcomings.

    I’ve been waiting to pick up one of the Sero Pro tablets. Guess I’ll have to get one now that the price has been reduced 😉

    Yes, they dropped the price right around the time that the new Nexus 7 hit the shelves. I was set to buy the new Nexus 7, but when I couldn’t find the new Nexus anywhere and found out that Wal-Mart dropped the prices on the Sero 7 by $20, I decided to go with the Sero 7 Pro for half the price of the Nexus.
