Walmart is jumping into the tablet business.

It’s yet another sign that the retail giant is getting serious about tech products.

Bloomberg was the first to report that the upcoming product would be “inexpensive” and “kid friendly”.

The tablet will be powered by Google’s Android.

Not much else is known, but they’re expected to be a low-cost option for parents.
