Next retailing an Android tablet

Got £1000 ? Good, you can pay for my new Diesel Particulate Filter on my car (sob, cry, whinge). Not got that? Got £180? Good, pop along to your local Next store and buy one of these Android tablets.

It has a 10″ WXGA screen and 8GB storage, WiFi, 2 USB ports, microphone, headphone sockets and a cardreader for extra storage. The tablet has an ARM 11 processor, but other than that we don’t know a great deal. If you have one please do let us know what you think.

Update – Mark Peters has grabbed some more specs from Next, which include the resistive screen. It looks like a re-badged Zenithink device.
