Versus is PC World’s own tablet brand and the high street retailer is selling the Touchtab 7V (from Versus) for a pence under £90 online (compared to £100 in store). The device comes with a free three months subscription to the Times digital which costs a whopping £55 on its own.
The tablet comes with a dual-core Rockchip RK3066 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz. It is the same chip that is used in the HP Slate 7, the Archos GamePad and the Dell Ophelia PC.
Other features include 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 7in 800 x 480 capacitive display, a microSD card slot, mini USB and mini HDMI ports, front and rear VGA cameras, a 3,000mAh battery which can power the tablet for up to four hours.
The only corner cut (at least on paper) has been the display which, at 800 x 480, simply doesn’t cut it anymore.
Other tablets like the Acer Iconia B1 come with a much higher resolution but with worse hardware.
We reckon that the TouchTab 7V will be ideal if you’re planning to use it as a media player as well (connected to your HDMI-enabled TV).
