Ever since Google released the Nexus 7, it has been a challenge for other companies to release low-priced tablets with similar specs. One of the latest competitors to enter the fray is Hisense. Perhaps best known for televisions, Hisense just released a couple Android tablets available exclusively at Walmart. The Sero 7 Pro and the Sero 7 LT cost $149 and $99 respectively. The Sero 7 Pro has specs that are on par with the Nexus 7, but it even manages to offer features Google’s tablet doesn’t have.

Here is a rundown of the Sero 7 Pro’s specs:

• Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean
• 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor
• 8GB internal storage with microSD slot
• 7-inch 1280×800 HD IPS display
• 5-megapixel rear camera with flash
• 2-megapixel front camera
• Bluetooth 3.0
• 4000 mAh battery
• Mini HDMI port

On paper this tablet is very impressive.; it’s hard to believe it’s only $149. We got a hold of the Sero 7 Pro to see if it lives up to its hype. Check out the video below for a complete overview of what this tablet has to offer.


  1. I am planning to buy a Vukano Flow to hook up to my Direct TV here in the U.S. Will I be able to view my home TV on the Hisense Sero 7 PRO tablet via the Vukano Flow (similar to a Slingbox) and can I stream the viewing of my home TV received on the Sero 7 Pro tablet to any HD TV via the mini HDMI out port. I’ll be out of the country during part of the football season and sure dont want to miss watching the football games and would love streaming to a larger HD TV via the mini HDMI if that is possible. Can you advise. Thanks
