Arnova 8

The Arnova 8 from the French company packs some interesting features at a very reasonable price. Though the tablet will not give tough competition to the iPad 2, it comes at a quite affordable price.

UK retail store Asda drops the price of Arnova 8 to £99 which is almost one fourth price of what you have to shell out to grab the cheapest iPad 2.

Coming to the specs of the tablet, it boasts an 8-inch resistive screen having a SVGA (800×600) resolution and a Rockchip 2818 SoC clocked at 666MHz. The tablet which runs on Android 2.1 Éclair comes with onboard storage of 4GB expandable up to 36GB using a 32GB microSD card.

Arnova 8 supports battery life of up to 5.5 hours and up to 25 hours playback. It also features Wi-Fi and a USB port. However, the tablet also comes with turn offs such as the resistive screen and the lack of access to the official Android Market.

Thanks to Kasty, a custom firmware which allows the Arnova 8 to access the Android market and helps in solving some of the screen issues faced by the users. You can however find better tablets provided they are more expensive.
