7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab Tablet Clone To Cost £100

A tablet with a capacitive display can now be purchased for less than £100, as Saveonlaptops has put the Tablo, a 7-inch device, on sale for £99.97.

Like many decent tablets, this model comes with an Allwinner A10 Cortex A8 chipset, one that is clocked at 1GHz and comes with dual Mali-400 cores, similar to the Samsung Hummingbird system on chip on the original Samsung Galaxy Tab. Much better than the ARM11 found on entry level models.

There's also 512MB RAM, 4GB onboard storage, a 3600mAh battery that can power the tablet for up to five hours, a front facing VGA camera, Wi-Fi, microSD, mini USB, HDMI port and a 7-inch 800x480 capacitive screen.

The Galaxy Tab had 16GB storage (but given that a 32GB microSD card can be had for under £18, extending onboard capacity shouldn't be an issue), a 1024x600 resolution plus a rear camera as well, although it did cost way more than the Tablo. The tablet is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread with full Flash support.

The competition at this price range is non existent; the Archos Arnova range and the Kogan tablet could be potential rivals but they are both priced well above the £100 ceiling.

He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
