[Deal?] Lenovo Tab 10 $79 @Walmart (16GB/1GB) Rooted & Lineage Support

This is a great price for an okay product at your local Walmart.

Lenovo Tab 10 Specs:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 quad-core (1.3 GHz) APQ8009 processor
  • 10.1 inch IPS touchscreen display (1280 x 800)
  • Dual speakers with Dolby Atmos
  • 1GB LP DDR3 Memory
  • 16GB eMMC Storage
  • microSD slot
  • 802.11b/g/n + BT4
  • Cameras: 5MP back, 2MP Front

The story goes…

This was apparently a loss leader at $99 that was meant to bring people in on Black Friday 2016 but was “accidentally” left off the BF ad entirely.

1GB is a bit light at this point; but that’s what the B&N Nook and 7″ Amazon Fire (Ford) ship with as well; and 1280 x 800 isn’t amazing for 10.1″; but heck, at $79 it sure isn’t a bad system.

The system of course got [ROOT] in no time thanks to all the system hackers over at XDA.

There is a Full Lineage OS port (GApps not included) for it too (again thanks XDA).

The dev, in true Open Source fashion even has all the code up on Github:

https://github.com/bbelos/android_kernel_lenovo_msm8909
https://github.com/bbelos/proprietary_vendor_lenovo_x103f

So feel free to hack away.

It’s not likely to be your primary system, but for a project, a kid, the car/minivan/Tahoe, or like I have done with my Fire Ford; throw a 128GB card in it, fire up Plex/UPnP, and you have a battery backed streaming server plus viewing console in one!

Drop your zip code in and it will let you know price and availability; around me they are mostly $79, with a couple of stores at $70, and two sold out at $50!

It’s also going in and out of stock on Amazon at the $79 price point; check CamelCamelCamel for history.

You can also get it direct Walmart.com for $86.92 with free shipping in a couple days time and same your time in driving there and finding an employee to locate the device.
