£130 Eken T10 Tablet Offers ICS 4.0, 10-inch Capacitive Screen

The Eken T10 is a rather weird beast; as a tablet, offers twice the amount of onboard memory as the iPad 2 (and the same as the new iPad) but chose to stick with an old ARM Cortex A8 based CPU (similar to the original iPad), the AllWinner A10 which comes with a Mali-400 GPU .

But it is cheap, very cheap. At £130, that's less than a third of what you'd expect to pay for the new iPad and less than half the price of the Motorola XOOM.

The rest of the tablet's features is fairly solid. You've got HDMI out, 8GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot, a 10-inch 1,024 x 600 pixels capacitive touchscreen display, USB and mini USB ports, a 1.3-megapixel camera, a 5000mAh battery, Wi-Fi, support for a wide array of file formats access to Android Market AKA Google Play and weighs only 665g.

Expect future versions to come with Cortex A9 (either single or dual core) and to boost a higher screen resolution, at least to match the iPad 2 (1,024 x 768 pixels). Check the video below to find out more about the build quality of the Eken T10.
