A Cheap Alternative To the iPad 2? Play Cuts Price Of Disgo 8100 Slim to £100

The Disgo 8100 Slim is by far the cheapest large capacitive screen tablet we've seen on the market yet and it is on sale at for a mere £99.99.

While it is no competition for the iPad, it still packs a powerful punch compared to other comparably priced tablets. Its main attraction is its large 10.1-inch 1,024 by 600 pixels capacitive display.

There's also an ARM11-based iMAPx210 processor clocked at 1GHz, 512MB DDR2 memory, 4GB onboard storage with an additional free 4GB microSD card, WiFi, two mini USB ports, a microSD card slot, an audio out and a mini HDMI as well as a massive 6500mAh battery.

On top of that is a 3-axis G Sensor, a built in VGA webcam and a microphone. The tablet is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread but there's no Google Play (formerly known as Android Market). Instead, the tablet is bundled with Get Jar. At 10.5mm, it is essentially a bigger version of the the Disgo 6000 with a capacitive display, a faster processor and more system memory.

A new version of the tablet called the Disgo 8104 with an even more powerful processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a heftier price tag is set to be launched pretty soon.
