Deal: £119 Disgo 8400G 3G tablet

CPC is not a retailer that regularly figures in our tech deal section. However, with a product such as the Disgo 8400G tablet, things might change.

That retailer sells this entry level 3G tablet for £118.80, a price that excludes delivery, and like the Archos 80 Cobalt, it pitches itself as a competitor to the Apple iPad Mini (and to a lesser extent to the Google Nexus 7).

When it comes to specifications, there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core SoC clocked at 1.2GHz with an Adreno 203 GPU (which should be slower than the Rockchip RK3066 found in many affordable tablets), 512MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 4,800mAh battery, a 7.9in 1,024 x 768 pixel resolution, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a 2-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front facing camera and 3G connectivity.

Disgo, which like Archos is far from being a household name, claims that the tablet comes "with Project Butter Triple Buffering & Extended Vsync Timing, Durable scratch resistant rear cover and Glass on Glass display for optimum brightness and contrast".
