Disgo has expanded its product lineup with a new device called the Disgo Tablet 9000. Retailing at £149.99, this tablet is targeted at those on a budget.
It features a 9.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, and 131ppi pixel density. Given such pixel density, users should not expect ultra-sharp images on this tablet.
Under the hood, it sports a 1GHz processor running alongside Mali 400 GPU. There is also a full gigabyte of DDR3 system memory. Users are provided with 8GB of storage, but this can still be expanded with an extra 40GB through a micro-SDHC.
The tablet is powered by a 7000mAh longlife li-ion battery which promises up to 5 hours of use after being fully charged.
The device runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but does not have access to Google Play. In lieu of said app store, its users have Disgo apps.
The tablet is packed with two cameras: a front-facing one has a 0.3-megapixel sensor whereas its main camera, located at its rear has a 2-megapixel one.
Stereo speakers , a 3.5mm headphone output, and a built-in microphone add to multimedia enjoyment, as well.
As for connectivity, the tablet supports Wi-Fi b/g/n and is equipped with a mini HDMI slot in case users want its content on a larger display.
In the UK, the Disgo 9000 sells for £149.99, and is available from stores like Currys and PC World.
All in all, these are modest specifications which would be appropriate for one who simply wants a basic tablet. Its lack of access to Google Play, however, may be disappointing for someone who wants to fully enjoy an Android-based device and have a wide range of options in terms of apps to download. It is worth pointing out that for an extra £10, one may purchase the Google Nexus 7 tablet, which does offer access to Google Play.
