If Samsung’s Galaxy Tab and Apple’s iPad are a little out of your price range, take a look at the Linx Commtiva N700. An affordable Android Froyo alternative, this 7 inch tablet seems to offer a fair bit of bang for your buck.
Multi-touch compatible with a TFT-LCD capacitive touchscreen, you’ll be able to browse the web, email and tweet on the go thanks to a 3G connection.
Doubling up as a mobile phone, you’ll also be able to text and talk to pals, with a 26 hour talk time battery, capable of 5 hours of more intensive media tasks.
A 3MP camera also features on the back, while a whole host of Android apps come pre-loaded, including a 30 day trial of the CoPilot navigation app.
“The Linx Commtiva N700 is one of the most affordable, feature rich multimedia tablet available,” said Simon Slater, Product Manager at Linx.
“Our aim is to deliver chic, cutting edge, technology without the high price tag often associated with alternative glossy tablet devices currently on the market. We are confident that the Linx Commtiva N700 now gives all consumers an affordable and stylish way to communicate when out and about.”
Shipping with a 4GB MicroSD card, you can pick up the Linx Commtiva N700 from Amazon, Carphone Warehouse, HMV, Phones 4 U, www.play.com, Staples and Tesco stores, priced £329.99
