Wholesale Android Tablets: An Introduction
The tablet computer was a game changer when Apple brought us the iPad in 2010. Today tablets are a way of life.
Like many other manufacturers, Chinese companies have taken the tablet form and run with it, offering high-quality products at competitive prices. At Chinavasion, we source the best of these products for you to enjoy.
All of our tablets run on the Android OS, which means you can choose from more than 600,000 apps and games. Whether you are a student researching a project on the net, a businessman (or woman) keeping up with the markets, a graphic designer pitching for a job, or a gamer wanting to get the latest multiplayer action, tablets are an ideal choice. In fact, whatever your interests, whatever your passion, tablets provide you with new ways to explore, express, enjoy and connect.
What's in the Chinavasion Android Tablet Wholesale Category?
Options range from the ultra-portable 4-5 inch 'mini' tablets and the ever popular 7 inch tablet PCs, through to super-fast 9 and 10 inch tablets with high quality HD displays so you can watch your favourite films as the director intended. Our smaller tablets, and some of the 7 inch models, combine the best of both worlds with 3G smartphone technology.
We also offer a more affordable range of tablets for the budget conscious shopper. Our competitive range of tablet accessories provides you with everything you'll need, from protective covers through to wireless headphones and camera connection kits. We even have a fun hamburger shaped speaker especially for mobile devices. It is so small that it fits in the palm of your hand but its unique hamburger-shape lets you enjoy beefy bass and sizzling treble -- yum!
Who Loves Android Tablets?
The portability and flexibility of tablets provides the answer to many everyday problems. Here are just two:
1: The Traveller
Picture this! You are about to leave for your holiday. The taxi will be here in ten minutes and you have tried for the hundredth time to zip up your suitcase. The zipper will not go. You have packed too much. Suppose someone handed you an Android tablet? What can you now leave behind? You can take out the eight books you meant to read on the beach for a start. You won't need your guide book and maps either. And why bother taking the camera and video recorder? Or the games you packed to pass the time if it rained? Nor will you need the notebook and pens you stuffed down the side of the suitcase at the last moment. In fact, the Android tablet can replace them all -- books, games, camera video, notepad. You could even send your friends and family an eCard or film yourself relaxing on the beach and post it on YouTube to make everyone back home jealous!
2: The Connected Family
Your blood pressure is rising. You can almost feel it. Your daughter is chatting to her friends on Facebook. Your son is doing his homework (finally), but of course he must have the laptop because he needs to do some research. Your wife is sorting out the family accounts on the PC, while simultaneously researching what new gadget she is going to buy you for Christmas -- better not disturb her. But it's your turn to cook and you need to get on the internet and look up how to make the perfect noodle soup. These days everyone wants to be online. A low-cost 7 inch Android tablet provides an affordable fourth or even fifth computer in the home. You need never run out of screens again. Everyone is happy.
Glossary of Android Tablet Tech Terms
- Android OS
The Android operating system (OS) was developed specifically for mobile devices by Google. It is a hugely popular mobile platform. Many technology commentators argue that it is superior to Apple's iOS.
- Capacitive touch screen
Capacitive screens rely on the electrical properties of your body to detect when and where you are touching the screen. Because of this they are very sensitive. You do not need to press hard on the display to control the tablet device, making them responsive and easy to use.
Milli amp hours - a measurement that tells you the strength or capacity of a rechargeable battery. The higher the number, the longer the battery will last. For example, a fully-charged 1500mAh battery can provide 100mA for 15 hours or 200mA for 7.5 hours.
WCDMA stands for Wideband Code Division Multiple Access, which is the third generation (3G) wireless standard. Offering high transfer speeds for voice and data, WCDMA 3G enables tablets and smartphones to access the internet at reasonable speeds.
- HDMI port
High Definition Media Interface -- If your Android tablet is fitted with an HDMI port you can take the video output and plug it in to the HMDI input on a high definition (HD) television, which means you can show whatever is on your tablet on your TV.
Android Tablets - How The Brands Opened Up The Market!
When Steve Jobs announced Apple's iPad to an unsuspecting world in 2010, he was actually launching a brand new category of device -- the tablet. First reactions were mixed -- What, no keyboard? It looks like a big iPhone! Since then, the doubters have ended up looking foolish. Tablets have become one of the best-selling and most loved mobile devices on the planet.
Initially, Apple dominated the market. However, newcomers are catching up fast and include the Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus and Microsoft's new Surface -- Bill Gates has caught up at last!

Android Tablets Are Easy To Use For Everyone!
All Chinavasion products use the same up-to-date Android OS as the branded products so you can download exactly the same apps and games for your Chinavasion Android tablet, including Facebook, Twitter, Google Maps and Spotify.
Our latest tablets are pre-installed with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the smoothest, fastest version of Android yet. Like any Android device, you will be able to upgrade your tablet to the next version of the Android OS when it becomes available.
As all Android Tablets use... the Android operating system, there is really little else to learn. Even the positions and functions of the buttons on the device are basically standard. So once you've used and loved one Android phone or tablet, you'll be fine using any of them!
Android Tablet Price Comparison...
The price of your Android tablet will depend on a number of factors. All Chinavasion products are built to the same high standard, however higher priced items are likely to have larger screens, higher CPU rates, dual processors and larger internal memories and RAM.
They may also have additional features such as SD card readers and HDMI ports. Some screens have enhanced high definition displays. Greater screen resolution adds to the cost but you are sure to appreciate watching your favourite movies on a pin-sharp HD screen.
Our cheaper Android tablets are no lower in build quality but make use of slightly slower CPU speeds and reduced screen sizes to bring down costs.
What's Coming Up In The Future Of Android Tablet PCs?
At Chinavasion we aim to keep up to the minute with our range of Android tablets. In the near future, we expect to see a greater convergence between the 7 inch tablet and the eBook reader, offering even more affordable tablets with a limited functionality for the casual user -- this will mean that consumers will think nothing of owning two or even three tablet devices.
At the other end of the scale, touch screen tablets are likely to grow even larger -- a 27 inch Android device anyone? Large-screen tablets will be ideal for complicated multi-page apps that require more screen real estate to operate them comfortably.
In the future, you can expect to see a further increase in our tablet specifications too -- faster processor speeds, larger memory, longer battery life.
