Android Ice Cream Sandwich on a tablet for less than £180? That’s what the Disgo 9104 promises to deliver.
At £179.99 it offers a 9.7-inch capacitive IPS display running at a 1024 x 768 resolution, 1.2 GHz Boxchip Cortex A8 ARM processor, 16GB of flash storage (expandable up to 64GB) and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera and 2-megapixel one on the back of the slate.
£100 worth of “Disgo Apps” will come pre-installed, including Office Suite Pro, with additional apps available via the SlideME app store.
The only downer is that if you want access to Google Play and all the apps there you’ll have to download it via a weblink.
“We are proud to launch the 9104 as Disgo’s flagship product and believe it will cement our place as one of the leading tablet manufacturers delivering the latest technology at affordable prices,” said Luke Noonan, Purchasing Director at Disgo.
“Our experience tells us that many consumers are looking for a happy medium between cost and function in the tablet market and the obvious players are not always the most affordable choice. The 9104 fills the void in the market for a high spec tablet for less than £180.”
It comes with a few caveats then, but £179.99 is as cheap as you’re likely to see an Ice Cream Sandwich tablet for some time.
