    A new competitor has entered the budget Android tablet market with some new Android Tablet products, and their name is Maxell. If you are old enough to have been around during the time of cassette tapes, then you might just remember this company's name from that bygone era. Yes, in fact, this is the same company that moved from casette tapes to CD's and DVD's, and other recording media. Now it seems they are branching out. They just announced two new budget-friendly Android tablets at IFA 2012, and apparently, this isn't the first time they have branched out into other consumer electronics products. Here's a quote with the skinny on these new Android tablet entries,

    What do you guys think? It's at least interesting to see the name Maxell again.
