While Samsung’s Galaxy Tab is aiming for the flash, big-spending end of the market, UK superstore chain ASDA has a cheaper option to go alongside it for those on limited budgets – in the super-cheap form of the 7″ Elonex e-Touch.
It’s a 7″ tablet with a resistive touchscreen and Android 1.6. Pretty much the very definition of “entry level” in Android tablet world, and nothing for the likes of us to get excited about.
But for people who don’t understand such things as capacitive screen technology and Android Market access, it’ll do for something cheap to Tweet about X Factor with via wi-fi. The more technically aware of you should shuffle on down the electronics aisle with your trolleys empty.
