Over the past two or three weeks, Newegg.ca has been selling the budget Z170C tablet for $139 CAD. After this short time, it’s now being discounted to $129 CAD, which is a savings of $10. For a new item, ten dollars off is interesting.
For sure the 1024 x 600 resolution screen of the ZenPad C 7.0 is a bit puzzling. In the US market, a $99 tablet is still a nice achievement, but for another $30 you can get the ZenPad 7.0 with the higher resolution screen and customizable cases and covers. We’ve seen this tablet rolled out in many of the Asian markets already, and that makes sense. For the North American market, to see the Z170C rather than the Z370C is an interesting situation and a bit of a head scratcher.
So far in the US market, we have seen a steady price of $99 so far. In Canada, it looks like $129 is what you will pay, at least for now. There aren’t too many retailers in Canada sellling ZenPads or taking pre order, but the list includes: Newegg.ca, NCIX, Canada Computers and Memory Express. Newegg.ca however is the only Canadian retailer currently selling this tablet for $129. The rest are showing it for sale at $139.
