    "We believe in a different approach to tablets—providing premium products at non-premium prices—"

    Which means: Market share isn't great so we're just throwing anything out there to see if it'll stick. Premium? 1280 x 800 cannot be called premium.

    £89.99 inc ads in the UK? Please tell me that you can disable the ads otherwise I'd never, ever, consider this tablet. £89.99 isn't a bad price though.

    I agree the screen res isn't great but probably good enough for the casual market...
    As for the ad's, if you read the last couple of lines... "and for either model it costs £10 more to have a system without special offer adverts."

    I see 2 discrepancies in your article: clicking on your Amazon UK link shows price as £99.99 i.e. worse than the notoriously abhorred £=$ exchange rate, and Amazon site says it supports WiFi-AC, your article says newest spec is 'n'

    As the SoC is alledgedly 64bit, does that mean it will get Fire version of Android 7 ?

    Does anyone know if there are likely to be any reviews before the official 21/9 release date, particularly with regard to ability to install Google Play Store, and screen clarity for reading eBooks ?

    You need to click on the "With Special Offers" button to get the £89.99 price (£89.99 inc ads)
