Alert! Random cheap tablet news item

I know you. I know you well. I sneak around in your kitchen when you’re out. I know that you’ve got wine that people gave you years ago that you still haven’t drunk. I know that you have that sandwich toaster and you’ve not used that for years either. Tsk.

But, I know something else too. I know that when you think “budget Android tablet” you instantly think “Busbi 1GHz Boxchip tablet”.

Oh yes, and today is your lucky day my friend. Today it’s down to £49.98, which is ten whole British pounds and one whole penny off the original price (ignore the picture at the top, it is actually £49.98).

It’s got a 7″ capacitive screen and that 1GHz CPU and a Mali 400 Graphics processor to make things a bit less painful. There’s 512MB memory and 4GB on-board storage plus a microSD slot so that you can add even more. It runs Android 4.0.4 and has WiFi plus a 2300mAh battery.

Right. I’m off, and I’m taking the alphabetti spaghetti too. Oh, don’t forget, the Busbi tablet comes with a 2 year warranty, which actually makes it not bad at all. We’re not sure if Google Play or any of the other Google apps are on there though.

  • That is stupidly cheap. My parents recently bought some £80 tablets for their business (to give to staff to refer to PDF documents on site) and while the screens are pretty ropey (absolutely terrible viewing angles), they’re cheap enough to give to staff without worrying too much if they get lost or broken.

    I wouldn’t want to run AnTuTu on one though. I expect it might be fine for web browsing and email, plus some basic games, but not much more. However, while I might usually argue that a Nexus 7 (or even the Nook HD) is worth a bit more money and gives you an excellent Android experience – with all Google apps, at £50 suddenly both of those seem really expensive!
