Disgo Launches Galaxy Tab Rival For £180

After Next and its £180, 10-inch Android-based tablet, yet another such device has hit the market, this time around from hardware company Disgo, whose Tablet 6000 will cost £180.

The DisGo Tablet 6000 comes with a 7-inch WVGA screen, a capacitive model we hope (although we'd be surprised if that's the case), 256MB RAM, 2GB onboard storage, a microSD card reader, Wi-Fi, a 14.6mm thick body (almost half more than the RIM Playbook) and a 1500mAh battery.

Interestingly, DisGo also says that it is equipped with two mini USB ports, a mini HDMI port, a 1GHz iMap X200 ARM CPU and runs on Android OS 2.1. We've never heard of a semiconductor company called iMap and online search for the firm remained fruitless.

The tablet will be sold for £179.99 at Amazon, Play.com and HMV. Personally though we'd probably choose to go for the Next model which comes with a much larger screen and free delivery as well for the same price. It doesn't have the HDMI port though and is probably less portable.
