£100 Fuhu Nabi 2 tablet: A genuine Google Nexus 7 rival

The Fuhu Nabi 2 tablet was a great purchase at £149.99. We gave it a very decent 8 out of 10 when we reviewed it in November last year. (ed : the price has gone up again to £149.99, which means that it was almost certainly a pricing error).

Now Ebuyer is selling this tablet, a decent rival to the Google Nexus 7, for a mere £100 (the offer is limited to one tablet per customer). This makes us wonder whether Nabi or Ebuyer are actually making money out of this device given that the similar-configured 32GB Google Nexus 7 tablet costs nearly twice that price at £199. When it comes to specifications, it is a very decent device.

It runs on a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.3GHz. There’s also 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, mini HDMI, a 7in 1,024 x 600 pixel display, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, microUSB, a 2-megapixel front facing camera, a 4,000 battery that can power the device for up to five hours and Android 4.0 ICS.

The Fuhu Nabi 2 is protected from bumps and falls by a (removable) colourful rubber case that indicates that its targeted audience is younger than say an iPad Mini or the Google Nexus 7.

We genuinely believe that this is the best value-for-money tablet on the market but we wonder how long will it be on sale before existing stocks run out.

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.
