Polaroid shows off M10 tablet for $229, we go hands-on (video)

Polaroid had its 7-inch M7 slate on hand at CES 2013, and you best believe there's an older sibling in that other requisite slate size: the 10.1-inch M10. (We dig the straightforward naming scheme with these products, by the way.) Like the M7, it sports a 1,280 x 800 resolution. It runs a quad-core Cortex A7 CPU with 1GB of RAM, but curiously we found this larger device to be more sluggish than its dual-core little brother. It runs Android Jelly Bean with a light skin that consists of widget tiles. This features both a 2-MP front-facing camera and a 5-MP rear shooter, and ports include HDM1-out.

Unlike the rubber-backed M7, the M10 sports a brushed-metal finish on the rear, which looks more elegant but doesn't provide the same comfy fit in the hand. The slate includes 16GB of on-board storage, but that's expandable via microSD card. It will go for $229 when it launches alongside the M7 this spring. Check out our hands-on gallery for a closer look and be sure to head past the break for a video demo.
