The following Tablet is brought to us by "Next" (a UK retail cloths store.... weird right?) that reveal a new 10" Android Tablet - and it is available NOW for only £180 ($286) which is pretty cheap considering that not too long ago the Kindle cost around 260$.
The device does not shines with the greatest specs on the market, but hay... It has two advantages; the price and the fact it is available. Check out the specs bellow.
The specs as they were revealed in www.coolsmartphone.com (Might be not accurate since I found some inconsistencies):
10" LED TOUCHSCREEN.This sounds like a pretty cool toy if you don't wanna spend too much money and do not care if the screen is captive or not.

WIDESCREEN LED BACKLIT LCD.
1.0GHz LNX CODE 11 PROCESSOR.

I did not like the fact that there is no TV-OUT, the battery life is pretty poor and the fact that it carries only 2 GB on board.
Will I buy it? I don't think so, nor I need a a tablet PC. However, if a similar device will be introduced in the near future (with a similar price) I might consider to buy it.
Although I am happy to see that the market is charging forward I would really want to see Android Tablets from reliable and experienced companies such as Dell, Sony and may be Asus. In a way those companies has already experienced assimilating the OS to their devices (The Streak, X10 and Gramin Phone) so why not do the same for tablets?
