Chinese disgo Tablet 6000 debuts in UK
Like most other Chinese goods, economy Android tablets from China are making their way westwards quite a lot of late - the most recent being the disgo Tablet 6000, which has found its way right up to the United Kingdom in search of a market. Due to be out this month in the UK, this 7-inch tablet from China is running on Android 2.1 OS (codenamed Eclair) with a display having 800 x 480 pixels of resolution. What concerns me is the internal memory storage of mere 256MB, in the age of almost double the memory even in a Smartphones. I’m sure the manufacturers of digso will do better to include at least 512MB of RAM for a screen that is significantly larger than the highest-end smartphone today.
Other features include stereo speakers, USB port, microSD card slot, a 3D graphics accelerator and HDMI output.
The disgo Tablet 6000 comes already loaded with the SlideMe market along with apps like the Skyfire web browser which supports full-Flash playback. Liliputing reports a ridiculously less capacity portable energy source in the form of a 100mAh battery and no access to the Google Android Market place.
The streak of affordable tablets which are light on your wallet but high on performance are finding their way to major markets which cover USA and UK under different brand names. One of the first to ship was the Augen GenTouch78, the trend of which is expected to be carried forward by the disgo Tablet 6000, with several more to come in the near future according to current trends.
Priced attractively at £180 or $285 US available at Amazon and several other retailers, this gadget is definitely a value for money, but remember if you are anything more than a casual computer user – look beyond this under-powered gadget.
