Deal: £180 Sumvision Cyclone Voyager 297 tablet PC with retina display

The Sumvision Cyclone Voyager 297 might seem expensive but it is also one of the most powerful so-called white labelled tablets we've ever seen on the market and will be a powerful and cheaper competitor to the new Google Nexus 7 tablet when it (Sumvision) launches next month.

Ebuyer sells it for £180 and had it charged more than £200, we'd probably not have considered ourselves fleeced. Check out the configuration. A quad-core Rockchip RK3188 system-on-chip clocked at 1.6GHz, one that uses Cortex-A9 cores, 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage (with a microSD card slot), a 9.7in display with an IPS Retina Display (that's 2,048 x 1,536), a quad-core ARM Mali 400 GPU, a 10,000mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, Dual band Wi-Fi, microUSB, microHDMI, a rear 5-megapixel camera and a front-facing 1.9-megapixel one.

It is safe to say that Sumvision is aiming at Apple's top of the range tablets (the iPad 3 or the iPad 4) but with a much more affordable price. Note tha this tablet is 11mm thick and weighs a mere 620g.
