Walmart to introduce inexpensive tablet computer, Bloomberg reports.

Walmart (WMT) plans to unveil an low-priced, kid-friendly tablet computer under its ONN store brand as part of a wider redesign of its electronic department, Bloomberg's Matthew Boyle reports, citing photos found on a database of wireless product applications filed with the FCC and a spokeswoman. The device, which will be made by a Chinese supplier and run on Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) Android operating system, could invigorate the tablet market which saw shipments fall 6.2% in 2018 with Apple's (AAPL) iPad the top seller, followed by devices from Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) and Amazon (AMZN).
