Monster Product’s first step into the tablet market with the 7-inch M7 Android-powered slate.

Head Monster Noel Lee and his army know how to hustle, there’s no debating that. First introducing high-end cables to the world, then taking over the hi-def headphones and personal audio industries; announced Wednesday, Monster Products has found their newest (unlikely) product market to infiltrate: tablets.

That’s right. Say hello to the first line of Monster tablets; the Android-based Monster M7 and M10, 7-inch and 10.1-inch models, respectively. Aside from boasting aptX for high-fidelity, near-CD quality audio, these cost-effective tablets will come pre-installed with a nice range of wireless functionality and entertainment applications.

The somewhat mid-range (specs-wise) M7 will feature Time Correct Bluetooth, a proprietary ‘hurry up and pair’ software, which will benefit users who enjoy watching flicks or zoning out to music via Bluetooth speakers or headphones. Also, the 7-inch slate will include Monster Central PowerControl, allowing users to monitor energy and power through the internet with Monster Power modules.

Of course the Google Mobile Services application suite will also come standard, as well as movie and TV streaming resource, Vudu.

“Packed with features, in an array of color options to match out headphone colors, and offered at an affordable price, we believe the new line of Monster tablets is going to surprise a lot of people,” said Head Monster Noel Lee.

To be honest, yeah. It’s a bit of a shock to see Monster enter the tablet game. Especially since I just sat down with Mr. Lee last month and he could have totally given me the scoop (I can keep a secret, come on Noel!)

In the company’s typical fashion, the two handhelds will be available in a full spectrum of colors: Candy Blueberry, Candy Tangerine Orange, Candy Grape Purple, Candy Apple Red, Candy Lime Green, Cotton Candy Pink, Frost White and Midnight Black.

Notice how the M7s perfectly match Monster’s N-Tune on-ear headphones.

 

The M7 tablet will be released first at a competitive price of $149.00. It’ll be a Walmart.com exclusive item, hitting the e-store in an undefined amount of time. Also, there was no word on specs, pricing or release date for the 10.1-inch model (but we’re guessing it’ll be the same deal in terms of color choices, built-in apps and wireless functionality, and a Walmart.com exclusive — at first at least. Maybe?)

Lastly, it’s important to note that some key attributes were left out from the company’s release. Granted these points are a bit nerdy, but we’d all like to know, for example, which semiconductor company supplied the processor? And most importantly, the native Android version was likewise unmentioned. To be honest, it’s tough to tell through the small promo shot above which iteration we’re dealing with. Any suggestions?

  • - 1.5Ghz dual-core processor
  • - Android operating system

  2. Another Android tablet to launch this week lets you use a SIM card for both Internet connection and phone calls from your tablet — and in the U.S. works through AT&T, T-Mobile and Straight-talk wireless, with 3G HSPA+ connection — the new Novo 7 EOS is well priced at $189 and offers a 7-inch HD screen, 16GB Memory, MicroSD memory card slot, and Bluetooth connection – which makes it’s easy to use a Wireless headset for phone calls; and also offers dual cameras, Android 4.2.2, built-in GPS, and a large capacity 4400 mAh battery — and you can simply use your current phone SIM card interchangeably with the tablet and not pay additional fees for wireless connection through your carrier — the Novo 7 EOS is made by Ainol Electronics, which won runner-up for Best-Tablet-of-the-Year at CES-CNET 2012.
