It’s pretty difficult to trust Android-based tablets manufactured by no-name companies, but if you’re willing to drop the usual healthy dose of skepticism, the Disgo Tablet 9000 might prove a pleasant surprise.
The 9.7-incher doesn’t have the specs of a lifetime, but compensates with an almost unbelievably low price for such a large tab – £149.99, or around $238. For that kind of money, you’ll surely appreciate the 1024 x 768 pixels resolution display, the Android 4.0 ICS running and the 8 GB of on-board storage.
Ticking under the hood there’s a 1 GHz processor we know very little of (presumably a dual-core unit of some kind), seasoned with 1 GB of RAM and a Mali 400 GPU. There’s also microSD support, a 2 MP rear-facing shooter, a 0.3 MP front-facing cam, a 7,000 mAh battery, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and even mini HDMI.
The only major downside, aside from the tab not coming from a big name in the industry, is the absence of Google Play support. You’ll get access to something called “Disgo apps” instead, but that’s surely of little compensation. All in all though, this still looks like a gadget with a good quality-price ratio, so it might be worth a look.
