CES 2013 - Every time I think of the brand Polaroid, I think back to the Black Eyed Peas' song "Hey Ya!" and the lyrics "shake it like a Polaroid picture", but here we are at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 in Las Vegas and Polaroid have some great news.


They've announced that they're releasing two new slates to compete with Google's Nexus devices. We're looking at the company releasing two new tablets which will be 7- and 10-inch, both sporting 1280x800-pixel IPS-based displays, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, microSD card slot for expandable storage and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The 7-inch Polaroid M7 tablet will sport a dual-core processor and 8GB of internal storage whilst its bigger brother the M10 will bust out the moves with a quad-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, HDMI and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. We haven't even gotten to the best bit yet, pricing.

Pricing on the M7 is just $129, while the M10 will arrive for just $229. Now that is some huge news from Polaroid and not only is it a Nexus competitor, but it will launch and be an instant iPad competitor, too.
