Deal: £209 Toshiba AT300 10.1 quad-core tablet

The Toshiba AT300SE-101 is the Japanese company's mainstream Android tablet and UK retailer Asda has cut its price to a mere £209, a saving of £70 and a clear sign that there's some serious clearing out happening. The device happens to have roughly the same specification as the Google Nexus 7 but with some very important differences.

It does have a microSD card slot and a rear 3-meagpixel camera and some people might actually appreciate the fact that it is an altogether bigger tablet (i.e. with a larger display).

The rest of the configuration is on par with what you'd expect from such a device, one which is probably a better option than the more expensive Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. There's a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 30L system-on-chip clocked at 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage, a microUSB port, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a microUSB port and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel model.

It weighs 642g and is a mere 10.5mm thick which makes of it a rather enticing device altogether. As expected, Toshiba has bundled a few of its own applications like Evernote. Check out our review of the Toshiba AT300SE tablet here.
