Pierre Cardin Android Tablet Down To £199

Paying more than twice the market price for a tablet whose only unique selling point is a logo and a case from a celebrated luxury brand was never a recipe for success.

The Pierre Cardin tablet was launched back in August 2011 and as a bundle, the device known as the PC-9006G, offers a swanky Pierre Cardin premium case, a stylus (ed : not sure of its usefulness given that the screen is capacitive), a car charger and a 8GB memory card (plus the tablet).

The latter is built by Time2 and can now be had from KGBdeals from only £199 (excluding £10 for P&P).

The specification list reads suspiciously like the Kogan 7-inch tablet which costs nearly four times less than the Pierre Cardin (at least when flogged at full price).

It has a single core Cortex A8 processor, a Samsung Hummingbird model clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a 800x480 pixel resolution, Wi-Fi, HDMI, a front-facing camera, a microSD card slot, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, mini USB, a 4400mAh battery and full access to Android Market.

For the same price, you would be probably better off buying an Archos 10 G9 tablet and accompanying accessories for less.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. 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.
