£100 Fuhu Nabi 2 tablet: A genuine Google Nexus 7 rival

The Fuhu Nabi 2 tablet was a great purchase at £149.99. We gave it a very decent 8 out of 10 when we reviewed it in November last year. (ed : the price has gone up again to £149.99, which means that it was almost certainly a pricing error).

Now Ebuyer is selling this tablet, a decent rival to the Google Nexus 7, for a mere £100 (the offer is limited to one tablet per customer). This makes us wonder whether Nabi or Ebuyer are actually making money out of this device given that the similar-configured 32GB Google Nexus 7 tablet costs nearly twice that price at £199. When it comes to specifications, it is a very decent device.

It runs on a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.3GHz. There’s also 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, mini HDMI, a 7in 1,024 x 600 pixel display, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, microUSB, a 2-megapixel front facing camera, a 4,000 battery that can power the device for up to five hours and Android 4.0 ICS.

The Fuhu Nabi 2 is protected from bumps and falls by a (removable) colourful rubber case that indicates that its targeted audience is younger than say an iPad Mini or the Google Nexus 7.

We genuinely believe that this is the best value-for-money tablet on the market but we wonder how long will it be on sale before existing stocks run out.
