Sub-£100 Tablet Appears With 3G, Capacitive Display, 1.2GHz CPU, HDMI port

Even though the New iPad is capturing headlines, there's an increasing market for entry level tablets for those who cannot or do not want to drop £400 on a device that will be obsolete within a year.

Bluebud is selling a £99.99 tablet (via daily deals website Mightydeals) that caught our attention because of its specifications. It features an Allwinner A10 Cortex-A8 processor clocked at 1.2Ghz, 512MB DDR3 memory, 4GB onboard storage, a 3000mAh battery (that has a five hours battery life), 3G, a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, HDMI, two USB ports, a SD card slot, Wi-Fi, support for a multitude of audio and video formats and it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbead.

The only weak point of the tablet is the fact that it has a 7-inch 800 by 480 pixels capacitive display rather than a much higher resolution one (1,024 by 600 for example).

Still, it remains a very good deal and is by far the cheapest 3G tablet on the market. Rivals at this price point include Kogan's tablet, Arnova and Archos devices as well as tablets from Viewsonic, Ainol (which comes with Ice Cream Sandwich) and a slew of other Chinese based manufacturers.
