The company releasing the latest product claimed to be a ‘budget tablet computer’ is English manufacturer Disgo, who have revealed their first-ever ‘3G-enabled Android tablet’ to be released at the end of the month.
Priced at £150, the ‘8400G’ carries a ‘7.9-inch screen’ with 1024 x 768 resolution, while powered by a ‘dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor’ (1.2GHz) and the Android 4.1.3 (‘Jelly Bean’) operating system.
Feature-wise, the device also boasts 512MB of RAM, 4800mAh battery (an estimated 8 hours’ worth of usage), 4GB internal storage (expandable through microSD), and support for Bluetooth, GPS, and Wi-Fi.
Disgo purchasing director Luke Noonan said of the product: “We are proud to be launching a 7.9-inch 3G product with such fantastic functionality at a great price. The added benefit of 3G makes it an ideal product to use when on the move, letting users have continual access to content on the web. The 8400g happily bridges the gap between quality and price for a handy, smaller tablet.”
The Disgo website adds of their latest device: “With the latest Android 4.1 (Jellybean) operating system and a fully capacitive 7.9 inch screen, the disgo 8400g literally amazes. Incorporating 3G and GPS technology, the 8400g delivers a totally and truly mobile experience with exceptional value. With Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual Core CPU, 3G and GPS built in, 8400G has connectivity to the max.”
Entering an increasingly more difficult market of budget tablets (which has seen trendsetters Amazon recently announce an intention to go even cheaper than before), how will the small brand of Disgo manage against global tablet industry powerhouses in the UK?
