Gemini Devices are preparing to unveil some new devices at the Gadget Show Live

Gemini Devices are preparing to unveil a few devices at the Gadget Show Live. They really seem to be targeting the budget end of the market and their next generation of devices seem to be continuing that trend. Some of the devices have already been announced and some are obviously just going to be available for potential customers to have a play with. They have the entry level 7″ Duo 7 and the Duo 7 3G which Jamie is actually reviewing at the moment. There is also the JoyTab Duo 8, 9.7 and 9.7 Pro. The so far have only released images of the Duo 7 and Duo 7 3G

The JoyTab Duo 7 3G has a fairly basic spec, but still the idea of a 7″ 3G tablet seems to appeal to me:


  • JoyTAB Duo 7 3G (Gem7032G)
  • RRP £139.99
  • CPU: Dual Core Cortex A9 Ghz
  • Memory: 1GB DDR3
  • Storage: 4GB built-in, upgradable with MicroSD Card up to  32GB (approx. 36GB total)
  • Display: Capacitive 5 point Multi-Touch Screen/7inch – 1024 x 600
  • Connectivity: Micro SD Audio: Built-in Speaker, Built-in Mic, 3.5mm Stereo Earphone Jack
  • Wireless Network: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n Built-in Bluetooth, 3G, GPS
  • Camera: Front 0.3 Megapixel, Rear 2.0 Megapixel
  • Gyroscope: Built in G sensor for gaming and automatic screen rotation
  • Battery: 5800mAh
  • OS: Google Android 4.0 (Upgrade to 4.2 Jelly Bean due soon)
  • Dimensions and weight: (W/H) 190.2mm x (H/W) 120.5mm x (D) 11.5mm /276g

The interesting device for me is the 9.7 Pro which is a Bluetooth keyboard equipped 9.7″ Jelly Bean running device, especially as it combines a dual core CPU and a quad core GPU. Oh and another thing is that Gemini have decided that the JoyTab Duo 9.7 would be good if it came in pink or blue. Yes a pink 9.7″ tablet you read that right. I think I’ve heard everything now.

Again Gemini have released very little info about the other tablets although the JoyTab Duo would provide a decent budget 9″ tablet as it has;

  • Dual Core CPU
  • Quad Core GPU
  • Jelly Bean 4.1
  • Capacitive 10 Point Multi Touch display
  • HDMI
  • Bluetooth
  • Front and rear cameras as standard
  • Colour options blue or pink

Maybe I’ll have to get myself down to the Gadget Show Live to have a play with these new devices. If you fancy reading the whole press release then it is down below. A few of us will probably be at the event so we should be able to get you some pictures of the pink tablet.

    my experience of one of these “joy”tabs was appalling. they are best avoided!

    • haha, the GIngerbread ones were pretty bad. The last ICS one I tried was pretty good and these prices are appealing. Fingers crossed eh?

    for another 20quid you can have a Nexus 7! OK it ‘only’ has 16gb, but its got to be the better option!
