Most places love to hold sales over Memorial Day weekend, as it's sort of the unofficial start of summer. Those deals aren't exclusive to brick-and-mortar retail stores, of course, and some really nice bargains readily pop up online.

NewEgg is one such retailer offering some good deals on a few Android tablets – one you've heard of, and a couple you probably haven't. Here's the skinny:

While most of you are likely familiar with the 2012 Nexus 7, there's less of a chance the specs of the other two are fresh on your mind. Here you go:

Hisense Sero 7 Pro

1

  • 7-inch 1280x800 display
  • 1.3GHz Tegra 3
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage
  • Android 4.2

Hisense Sero 7

1[6]

  • 7-inch 1024x600
  • 1.6GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB storage
  • Android 4.1

Not the greatest tablets on the planet, but not awful for the money, either. Hit the links above to grab one.

    Any good deals on larger tablets out there?

  • HellG

    I like Newegg and i visit the website alot, still have no idea why their android app asks for camera and microphone access and other unrelated permissions!!

    • Cory S

      Haven't used it...but does it have barcode scanner search or anything?

      • Andrew

        Yes, it has a barcode scanner for search and a microphone next to it for voice search

        • Brandon V.

          Well, you answered his question. Barcode scanner needs the camera, voice search needs microphone.

    • Brandon V.

      The app has a barcode scanner, and voice search. There's those two permissions.

    I already have two Nexus 7 for me and my family so I probably shouldn't buy another one. It's running solid with CM11.

      Try the new f2fs mod. A little battery intensive but much faster

  • anonymouse

    The Sero 7 (LT) is an incredibly painful to use tablet. The slow processor and poor touch responsiveness made me barely use it as even an eBook reader. For $35, you could do worse, but tread carefully and don't expect much.

    Temping. My 2012 N7 is stuck on the X booting even after a factory reset. Hoping I'll be able to fix it but sure that I can.

    • Nathan Fletcher

      Have you tried resetting it from recovery?

      • rap

        Yes went into recovery and did the factory reset from there. Thanks for checking. I think the next step is to have the hubby try flashing the rom. His computer is already set up with adb and the drivers so I'll probably wait till he has time next weekend to do it. It had been running really slow recently and I was just waiting till I had the time to back up a few things and do a factory reset anyway. I think the memory was too low but I don't know (<5GB left of 32GB). They do this sometimes. Will be missing it this week. Just hope it isn't bricked.

        • Nathan Fletcher

          I guarantee that if you use nexus toolkit by wugfresh, you could do it. It is nearly fool proof. Also, as long a you have it updated, storage fullness shouldn't impact speed because they added trim in 4.3.

  • Matthew Merrick

    I bought a Sero 7 Pro shortly after launch for my dad, and it's actually a really good little tablet. It's basically the 8GB Nexus 7 v1 with a 5mp camera (and flash), and SD card slot. It has not and probably will never see an OS upgrade from 4.2, but 4.2 still runs fine on it. It's worth consideration for anyone still, even though it's a bit dated, because it's one of the only 7" tabs out there with NFC (other than a Nexus). only thing that irks me about it is that they cut multiuser support out of it for some reason.
