Deal: £119 Disgo 8400G 3G tablet

CPC is not a retailer that regularly figures in our tech deal section. However, with a product such as the Disgo 8400G tablet, things might change.

That retailer sells this entry level 3G tablet for £118.80, a price that excludes delivery, and like the Archos 80 Cobalt, it pitches itself as a competitor to the Apple iPad Mini (and to a lesser extent to the Google Nexus 7).

When it comes to specifications, there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core SoC clocked at 1.2GHz with an Adreno 203 GPU (which should be slower than the Rockchip RK3066 found in many affordable tablets), 512MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 4,800mAh battery, a 7.9in 1,024 x 768 pixel resolution, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a 2-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front facing camera and 3G connectivity.

Disgo, which like Archos is far from being a household name, claims that the tablet comes "with Project Butter Triple Buffering & Extended Vsync Timing, Durable scratch resistant rear cover and Glass on Glass display for optimum brightness and contrast".

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.
