Have $39 to spare? Then pick up this odd Sylvania 7” netbook with Windows CE

Ah, Windows CE aka “Compact Embedded”. It was the heart of Windows Mobile and for a long time, powered kiosks and all sorts of service devices (it still does, in fact). For consumers, it was never quite full-blown Windows, but it did have a lot of the core components including Internet Explorer.

So it’s weird to see this “factory recertified” Windows CE 7” tablet hailing from Sylvania going for the “daily steal” for just $39. The device came out in late 2009/2010, so you’re hardly getting relevant technology (even back then this was low-end).

But for $39? (regular is around $100), you hacker types could do some fun things with this little guy. Maybe not Matrix-level stuff, but we’re sure if you’re creative enough you could find a daily usage for it and if not? You paid $39 for a “netbook”.

Also, one word: kids.

Here are the full specs:

  • Compact design
  • 3 USB ports
  • Touchpad
  • SD memory card slot
  • Headphone jack
  • Microphone jack
  • 1800 mAh battery
  • WiFi
  • 128MB RAM
  • Windows CE 6.0
  • Ethernet port
  • 7” LCD screen

We may just pick one up because we’re silly like that, but are they any takers who will grab their own? If so, how will you use it? Share your ideas in comments, people!

Remember, this is a daily deal thing, which means you only have 12 hours left!
