GooglenexusThe growth in technology is always fascinating.

The Sammobile website has said that the Korean manufacturers are planning to throw enough tablet computer shaped mud at the wall, in the hope that some of it will stick – an approach they have seemingly taken with smartphones over the past year or so. Four new device swill be ready for launch in the first three months of 2014.

Ubislate 7ci, The World’s Cheapest Tablet, Is Now Available In The UK For £30

ubislate-7ciThe Ubislate 7ci, which was initially developed for Indian schools, has now been released in the UK with an unbelievably low £30 price tag.

First Google with the Nexus, followed by Amazon with the Kindle Fire, then Tesco with the Hudl, Argos with the MyTablet, and even Aldi with Medion LifeTab. All of these companies probably thought they had the award for the cheapest tablet to hit shelves, but the Ubislate 7ci isn’t just in a different ball park, or in its own league, it’s playing an entirely different game and setting its own rules.

The specs really aren’t very impressive, as you would expect, but considering it costs less than the £40 most people will spend on sending cards this year, buyers shouldn’t have been expecting anything else. Continue reading

Aldi Is The Latest To Launch A Budget Tablet

Aldi LifetabBudget supermarket chain Aldi is launching its own budget tablet, the 7″ Medion Lifetab E7316, this Sunday. It will cost £79.99 but will it be competition for the likes of the Hudl and the MyTablet?

Once upon a time, if you wanted a tablet PC you had to pay the high prices of an iPad or Samsung device, or opt for something next to useless like the Blackberry Playbook. Then, along came the Google Nexus. It would be fair to say that the Nexus revolutionised the tablet market, or at least the price that consumers have to pay in order to get their hands on one. It had reasonable specs and it was possible to pick one up for around £150.

Since the launch of the second generation of Nexus, and the introduction of devices like the Kindle Fire, things have started to really open up. Tesco, Asda, Carphone Warehouse, and Argos have all launched their own budget tablets with prices ranging from £50 to £120. Continue reading

Dixons Releases Advent Branded Tegra Note Tablet For £180

tegra-noteDixons owned Advent has released an own-brand version of the recently announced Tegra Note, which it is selling for £180. Pre-orders are available now, and the tablet should arrive in a week.

Nvidia recently announced that its new tablet would be available to partners to upgrade and personalise before selling under their own brand. While there will undoubtedly be a few that take up that offer, retailer Dixons has stolen a march on the opposition. By being the first to announce the tablet, they have been able to make no changes, apart from slapping their own Advent moniker on the device. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, of course, because the Tegra does have some really quite decent specifications and features. Continue reading

Carphone Warehouse Launches 7” Android Tablet For £49

carphonewarehouse-tabletCarphone Warehouse has joined the increasingly long list of retailers launching their own tablet. The Avoca 7 will cost just £49 and has really quite reasonable specifications for the price.

The Google Nexus and the Kindle Fire HD ruled the roost for some time when it came to cheap tablet devices. However, Tesco blew the lid off the market with the launch of the £119 Hudl and then Argos jumped on board with a £99 MyTablet. Carphone Warehouse, though, has taken cheap to a whole new level and rather than shave £10 or £20 off the price of its rivals, it has halved the next cheapest by launching the £49 Avoca 7.

As you should expect, the Avoca 7 won’t be setting the world alight because, while it has really quite good specs for the price, we are talking a device that is a quarter of the price of the Nexus. Continue reading
