10in Android ICS tablet drops under £100

Online Ebay retailer, DigilandUK, is selling the Kocaso M1050 Android tablet for a smidgen under £97 including delivery, making it one of the cheapest large screen tablets on the market.

The tablet comes with a Vimicro processor clocked at 1.2GHz (we're not sure whether it is a Cortex-A8 or an ARM11-based), 1GB of DDR3 RAM, 4GB on-board storage, two USB ports, a 10.1in 1,024 x 600 pixels resistive screen, a 5000mAh battery, HDMI out, Wi-Fi, a front facing webcam, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a microSD card slot and even an Ethernet port.

Oddly enough, there's no onboard GPS or Bluetooth. We'd gladly swap the Ethernet port for either. A new model, the M1060 comes with a capacitive screen but also costs 45 per cent more. Note that the Kocaso M1050 comes with a leather case and full access to Google Play.

7in tablets with a capacitive display and a similar configuration can be had for around £70 but they have a 800 x 480 pixels resolution instead.
