Deal: £68 Ampe Dual Core tablet with Android 4.2.2

There's something about this Ampe tablet that reminds us of the HTC Flyer, a tablet that's nearly 30 months old. However, the former costs only a fraction of the latter and delivers, arguably, a better performance.

It is currently offered on eBay for £68 including 68 Nectar points and free delivery. It runs on a dual-core Rockchip RK3066 system-on-chip clocked at 1.2GHz, has 1GB of RAM, a 7in display with a 1,024 x 600 pixel resolution, 6GB onboard storage (surely that's 8GB), a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, a mini USB port, a mini HDMI one, a 2-megapixel rear camera, a 0.3-megapixel front facing one, GPS and a bigger than average 3,500mAh battery. Note that it runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Following the launches of the Asus MeMopad HD7 and the new Asus-built Nexus 7, one can expect quad-core tablets to become more mainstream, something that will depress the price of dual-core models and ultimately push them to the very bottom of the market.

Competitors to the Ampe tablet include the Archos 80 Cobalt, the Acer Iconia B1, the Apple iPad Mini and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7in.
