Elonex Announces Six New Budget Tablets in UK
Most of the tablets currently available are expensive and may be hard for people to justify buying, but British tablet maker Elonex has introduced six new tablets, all of them extremely cheap compared to other tablets. All the tablets are running on Android 2.2, which is now getting older and older, and currently no information is available on U.S. availability.
First up is the 7-inch eTouch 760ET and it comes with 800×480 touchscreen display, 1 GHz LNX Code 11 ARM processor, 256 MB of RAM, Wi-Fi, 4G built-in storage and a microSDHC card slot. The tablet is going for £119 (approx. $195).
Next is eTouch 702 ET, which comes with an 800×600 resolution display and a more responsive touchscreen display. It comes with 800 MHz Cortex A8 ARM processor and 512 MB of RAM. This one is going for £179 ($293). Both the702ET and 760ET will be available in April.
The other four are 10-inch tablets, and the first one is eTouch 1000ET. It comes with 1 GHz LNX Code 11 ARM processor, 256 MB of RAM and a microSDHC card slot. The 10.1-inch touchscreen display features a resolution of 1024×600. It’s priced at £149 ($244).
Next one is eTouch Blade Wi-Fi 1044ET which also features a 10.1 inch Progressive touchscreen display with resolution of 1024×600. It comes with 800 MHz Cortex A8 ARM processor and 512 MB of RAM. This model is priced at £189($309). The last two models are the eTouch Blade Wi-Fi 1040 ET and Blade 3G 1043 ET. eTouch 1040 ET is priced at £229($374) and it comes with 10.1 Inch touchscreen display with multi-touch, 800MHz Cortex A8 ARM CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and microSD card slot. The most expensive model is the eTouch 1043 ET which is priced at £279($447) and the only difference between it and 1040ET is that it comes with Capacitive touchscreen display and a SIM card slot which means that the device is 3G enabled. All three models features the some design shown above.
All 10.1 inch models will hit UK next month. Unfortunately, the devices are not coming to U.S.A. at the moment, so U.K. readers, share your thoughts with us!
