£105 Sumvision Cyclone Voyager tablet: Like the Apple iPad mini, only cheaper

You can get the Sumvision Cyclone Voyager tablet for as little as £105 from Ebuyer’s eBay outlet, with a one year warranty, free delivery and 105 Nectar points.

This tablet shares a number of features with Apple’s iPad Mini like the fact that they are both dual-core devices (the Cyclone Voyager uses a Rockchip RK3066 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz with a quad-core Mali 400 GPU solution), both have an 8in IPS display with a 1,024 x 768 pixel resolution, 1GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage.

However there are some significant differences as well. Sumvision’s tablet runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It costs only a fraction of Apple’s tablet. It doesn’t have a rear camera but does have a front facing one.

Other features include a 4,200mAh battery that can power the tablet for up to five hours, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, mini HDMI and microUSB port plus a microSD card slot.

We suspect that by the end of the year, most tablets will be quad-core models, running either on a Cortex-A5, Cortex-A7 or Cortex-A15 core. As some experts pointed out, marketing will play a huge role and so will the number of cores.
