Popular UK high street chain Next is currently stocking an own-brand Android tablet, which it’s calling the Next 10″ Tablet. Unsurprisingly, Next doesn’t go into details about the OS version or touchscreen technology.
It does at least tell you it packs a 10″ WXGA LCD screen, 8GB of onboard storage, two USB ports and wi-fi. Not bad for a £180 impulse buy while the wife’s trying on coats over in the ladieswear section.
It’s clearly a rebranded something or other – anyone care to ID the original manufacturer? Good to see Android on the high street, nonetheless. With thanks to reader Phil for the spot.
Phil mailed Next and got the specs out of ‘em:
