Maylong M150 – is this really the worst gadget ever?


Ars Technica takes a long, scathing (and at times hilarious) look at the Maylong M150 tablet computer from China. It’s a $99 Walgreen special, but the price seems to be the only thing going for it. Maybe not one for your stocking this year?

 Maylong’s website doesn’t specify any details about the non-user-replaceable battery, but does say that it has a standby time of 2-3 hours. That’s not usage time, folks: that’s how long the thing will last in your bag after you unplug it, and according to our use, it’s a pretty good estimate. If you charge it before leaving for the airport, there’s a pretty good likelihood that the M-150 will be dead by the time you get on the plane.
