8-Inch 4G LTE Tablet BLU M8L Plus Launching On Best Buy In March For $129

Best Buy is launching a Blu tablet in the US in March, and this time it's a cheapish 8-inch 4G LTE tablet BLU M8L Plus: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/blu-m8l-plus-m02100ww-32gb-gsm-unlocked

What purpose does it serve? It seems to be a way of getting into a 4G tablet at the lowest price point possible in an 8-inch Android tablet.

It runs Android 11 Go, but has very basic specs, such as a 1.6 GHz octa-core Allwinner CPU, just 2GB RAM, and 32GB storage.

The BLU M8L Plus screen is also just an HD screen at a good old resolution of 1280 x 800.

And the battery could have been bigger too, as it only has a battery capacity of 4300 mAh which can't last for more than 6 hours in video playback mode.

A 5MP front camera, and 8MP rear camera with a LED flash are among the better specs of this tablet.

But as it doesn't even feature proper Wi-Fi 5 or higher, I would say this is a tablet to avoid altogether.
