The phrase “cheap Android tablet” usually makes me shudder a little bit and then it makes me cross my fingers hoping I’m not forced to review one of the wretched things.
Yesterday I got an interesting email, you know the sort you get from a company you once bought something from. Well normally I just delete them, but this time I spotted the word “Android” which grabbed my attention. Once the images had loaded I was confronted by a 10″ Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with the Google Play Store all for under £100.
So what is it then? Well it’s a GoTab 10″ Android 4.0 tablet and it costs £83.99 and you can read all about here over at Misco.

What this would be ideal for is to take on holiday, or give the kids, or throw in the back of the car to try and induce travel sickness upon your kids on long journeys or something else as equally fraught with danger.
