    Just goes to show what can be done by the top manufacturers at the budget end of the market. Google pushing out it's Nexus devices with minimal profits to drive the market, lets hope some well spec'd budget smartphones follow as well.

    Looks OK but you can buy a similar tablet spec for £20 less in the Sumvision Voyager model. I own 2 Sumvision tablets now and ignoring the less than imaginative 'easy start' leaflet they are serving me well

    What's the point of them launching two tablets of exactly the same price with almost the exact same specs? (there are pros and cons for each one over the other)

    This is specced up similarly to the chinese tablets - although its about twice the price. Still a lot closer to that end of the market than we have seen before though (for a device with google play out of the box), and I guess that this is really competing against the similarly priced Kindle Fire (not HD) which also has very similar specs.

    More competition like this can only be a good thing

    Nice for the budget buyer but I wish they would release the product that became the Nexus 7. Nexus 7 is a nice tablet but they cut out the SD card slot and HDMI out from the original Asus own-brand design and it lost a bit too much in the process for me.
