Tablet hype is hitting its crescendo and you may have recently asked yourself, "do I really need one?" We have seen some exciting eye candy recently with Apple's iPad and HP's Slate, but the price, is it worth it? I decided a couple of weeks ago to wait. Just simply wait and see how all this tablet stuff pans out. Then, just as I am feeling truly satisfied with my decision I hear about iLet.

Haleron thinks we all need a tablet, and have one set at a price I think we can all afford. Haleron's 7″ Android 1.6 based iLet Mini HAL could be just the tablet that shakes my earlier reasoning. The device is running a 600MHz VIA CPU and will be available by the end of this week for the low price of $199.00. The Haleron iLet Mini HAL will also have 2GB of on-board memory as well as 10GB of “cloud” storage for all of your stuff and will start shipping, 1 March 2010.
This tablet immediately changes the field considering the low price. Interestingly, It’s size is about the same size of a 7″ x 5″ sheet of tablet paper making it just the right size for entering text on the portrait keyboard. It also seems well designed for reading. I have never heard of Heleron but this is a cool little tech-toy!
