Say you’re in the market for a 7-inch Android tablet, but the Asus Nexus 7 seems too expensive. And you don’t want to wait for the Asus MeMO Pad 7, or figure that’s too expensive too. What to do?
Well, you could get an Acer Iconia B1 for £99. But spending just £10 more could net you a 400 MHz increase in the processor’s clock speed and double the RAM in that.
Interested? Good. Meet the Scroll Excel III, offered by Storage Options. It has a 7-inch 1,024×600 touchscreen, a dual-core 1.6 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 2 MP rear camera, a 0.3 MP front camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI out, and a 3,000 mAh battery. And it runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Price? £109.99.
That may not be the most recent Android version, but at this price… why get upset? The battery capacity may be slightly disappointing, but it’s 290 mAh more than what you can find in the aforementioned Acer tablet. So that tenner is clearly worth it. Unless, that is, you want your tablet to bear a brand you’ve at least heard of.
