Online retailer Merimobiles has just introduced a new, just-released, tablet from AllFine, the Fine7 Genius, one that costs $87 (around £57) and includes shipping but no taxes.
The tablet comes with some jaw-dropping features that could only be found until recently on much more expensive tablets like the HTC Flyer and the Google Nexus 7. And yes, this is a £57 tablet.
The Fine7 runs on an ATM7029 system-on-chip. This is a quad-core Cortex-A9 model clocked at 1GHz with a quad-core Mali-400 GPU (although a number of other sources claim that it might be Cortex-A5 with a Vivante VC1000+ GPU).
It comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB onboard storage (like the first Google Nexus 7) but it adds a microSD card slot AND a HDMI port.
Other features include a 7in IPS display with a 1,024 x 600 pixels resolution (like the HTC Flyer 7), Wi-Fi, a front-facing VGA camera, a 3,600mAh battery and Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.
In just two years, white label tablet manufacturers have made massive strides. We remember how bad the first Android tablets were. Donut combined with pre-Cortex SoC was one of my worse computing memories ever.
Below is an 8-minute, indepth review of the tablet which goes through the main features of the AllFine Fine 7 Genius.
