Thread Details

CVS has this low-end but adequate for many on 50-90% off clearance.
Ask the store clerk to check: Craig Tablet 0741, usually in the Photo area with other "high value" electronics. Could be in the back of the store as well.

Check the bottom of the box and the back of the tablet if the seal's already open that it's the CMP-741e. Photo attached below.


Update: quite a few reported to have paid $25 with 75% off now.
$12.5 anyone? (holding breath...)

Update 2: multiple reports of $10 or 90% off.
Receipt updated. Thanks, zirjacks!

Craig CMP741e running ICS 4.0.3. Has HDMI, and works fine with Youtube and Netflix.
The spec is much better than CMP741d, which seems to be the ridicule in this forum. A good review here,

Do they keep these behind the counter or in around the store?

Why don't many of these cheap tablets come with google play?
Because they have to pay Google for those apps and also meet certain standards.

If possible, if you can pick up an extra one, I'd be willing to pay you for it, plus some extra cash to ship it... I'm located in New Jersey and cannot find one ANYWHERE...

Thanks..

Google has a certification process to get google apps such as google play and gmail, don't play by google rules and you won't get these apps.

Android on the other hand is completely open source, google doesn't get to set rules for android since it is open source and anyone can modifiy it and put it on their devices.

Seems pretty similar to the Double Power tablet T711 sold by Walmart for $59 about a month or so back. I got one and it worked pretty good until my kid dropped it and broke the screen.

If you can find one, good starter tablet (for kids, for sure) IMO.

how much does it cost to make? Not sure but to put it in perspective, think about this. Guess how much it costs Apple to make a COMPLETE Iphone? You'll choke! $8 (and yes I said $8 and no I didn't slip a decimal). They then sell them to the wireless carriers for about $600 and then these guys sell them much cheaper but make up for it on the service.

So we are clear. That $8 figure you are referencing is the labor cost associated with building one iphone. Not how much it costs to make them including parts.

I hate apple but that's not correct. The iPhone 5 costs a little over $200 to make

iPhone 5 costs $199 to make, say analysts

Wilson Rothman / NBC News
Early estimates by hardware analysts put the cost of building the iPhone 5 with 16 GB at around $200 — more expensive than the 4S was at launch but not surprisingly so. The improved screen and wireless chip are tipped as major costs.

The device isn't even shipping yet, but companies like IHS iSuppli can still put together an estimate by looking at published specs and talking with manufacturers. Until the actual phone gets dissected and the parts identified and priced, it's just speculation, but a ballpark estimate is still useful. An earlier analysis by UBM TechInsights put the cost at $167.50, however, so both should perhaps be taken with a grain of salt.

The most expensive single item in the iPhone 5's bill of materials is the screen, according to iSuppli; by integrating the touch panel and increasing the size to 4 inches (from 3.5 inches), the cost for that one component jumps to an estimated $44. The new LTE-capable wireless chip is the next-most-expensive piece, costing around $34, significantly more than the 4S's more limited chipset.

Not all the components are more expensive, though. The flash memory used to store all your music and apps has gotten cheaper over the last year, meaning 16GB of it now cost as little as $10, compared with $17 last year and even higher the year before.

The $199 total is exactly the price at which the 16GB version of the device is being offered, at least with a two-year contract. With no contract, the price balloons to $649, more than three times the estimated cost to build it. It's a relatively high markup: Google's Nexus 7 tablet, for instance, is estimated to cost $152 to build, and it sells for $199 with no contract.

These cost analyses help the industry understand how much profit is being made per phone, and teardowns show who actually makes the components in question (for example, Sony made the iPhone 4S's camera). Expect a full breakdown of parts and costs when the device actually ships.

$8 is the manufacturing cost. The cost of the hardware is over $200, and packing/shipping is another few bucks. Then there's engineering, R&D, several thousand other jobs in the supply chain, and a few thousand more jobs in the retail chain. Oh, and advertising.

Next time, read past the headline.
