Of the first three tablets introduced by Walmart under its Xelio brand, the P900A-BK is clearly the superior product among the lot. Granted, that’s not saying much at all and most of the Xelio 9” tablet’s superiority is based is its still relatively poor 8 GB of internal storage space. The suggested retail price of under $100 will certainly tempt a few would-be device owners or gifters, however.
The Xelio line is naturally all about pricing, and the result is a bunch of seriously stripped-down, no-frills devices. The P900A-BK is another textbook example beginning with the beyond-underwhelming display “loaded” with 800 x 480-pixel resolution. No, that’s not a misprint. The screen itself is about as cheap as one would suspect and glare is often a problem.
As stated above, about the sole perk in the Xelio P900A-BK is the reported 8 GB of memory (though actually usable are only about 5 GB); this is sadly only a plus measured against the other Xelio models. A micro SD card slot is included, but “thanks” to the 1 GHz CPU, one can’t expect to run anything but the simplest apps and shortest video clips seamlessly.
