It’s not so easy to find a quality piece of hardware for the low price, but the British merchandise retailer, Tesco is offering a tablet which might catch your attention. The tablet is called Connect, runs the latest version of Microsoft’s desktop operating system (Windows 10), and is priced at £99 ($150).
As I said, most of budget tablets are either not quality enough, or don’t offer satisfying hardware configuration, but Connect is slightly different. It comes with a decent 8-inch LCD display of 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution, the device is powered by Intel Atom Z3735G quad-core processor clocked at 1.33 GHz (which can also be found in HP’s more expensive Windows tablet, ElitePad), 1 GB or RAM memory and 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded for another 32GB with a microSD card.
As for the cameras, it comes with a 2-megapixel rear camera, and a 0.3-megapixel camera placed on the front of the device. And on the connectivity side, the tablet supports WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and has a micro HDMI port. The only thing that could be consider as a con of this device is a short battery life, reportedly it lasts only four hours of play on a single charge.
As I already mentioned, it is powered by Windows 10 Home, and considering the fact that Windows 10 would cost you $119 if bought separately, this tablet is even better offer for the price of $150. The tablet also comes with Office package, including pre-installed Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, but as it seems, without the one year subscription of Office 365, but besides that, I think it offers more than enough for the price. This tablet is going to be the first tablet that runs the pre-installed Windows 10 to ship in the UK, and for the price of £99, you should definitely consider buying one for yourself.
