Pierre Cardin Android Tablet Down To £199

Paying more than twice the market price for a tablet whose only unique selling point is a logo and a case from a celebrated luxury brand was never a recipe for success.

The Pierre Cardin tablet was launched back in August 2011 and as a bundle, the device known as the PC-9006G, offers a swanky Pierre Cardin premium case, a stylus (ed : not sure of its usefulness given that the screen is capacitive), a car charger and a 8GB memory card (plus the tablet).

The latter is built by Time2 and can now be had from KGBdeals from only £199 (excluding £10 for P&P).

The specification list reads suspiciously like the Kogan 7-inch tablet which costs nearly four times less than the Pierre Cardin (at least when flogged at full price).

It has a single core Cortex A8 processor, a Samsung Hummingbird model clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a 800x480 pixel resolution, Wi-Fi, HDMI, a front-facing camera, a microSD card slot, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, mini USB, a 4400mAh battery and full access to Android Market.

For the same price, you would be probably better off buying an Archos 10 G9 tablet and accompanying accessories for less.
