Deal: £70 Sumvision Cyclone Odyssey 7 tablet

Meet the Sumvision Cyclone Odyssey 7, a nifty little tablet PC which is currently on sale at Ebuyer for a mere £70 including delivery (note that the item is on preorder and is expected to be delivered towards the end of next month).

It is powered by a dual-core Rockchip RK3168 system-on-chip, one which is based on the Cortex-A9 architecture, and runs at 1.2GHz. The unit comprises 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a 7in display with a 1,024 x 600 pixel supported by an I.T PowerVR SGX540 GPU, a 3,000mAh battery with a seven hours battery life, Android 4.2.2. Jelly bean, a microSD card slot, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera but no rear one.

There's not much to be said about it other than this will represent for a foreseeable future, the type of entry-level devices that can be expected from Chinese white-label Android tablet manufacturers.

We've indeed come a very long way from the tablets that first came out three years ago with Android 1.6 Donut, ARM11 system-on-chip and being put hastily together.
