And if you’re still not keen on stumping up in excess of £300 and missed out on an £89 TouchPad, then the AndyPad might be the answer. This bargain bucket tablet has just hit UK shelves, costing £129 for the basic 8GB model, which touts a 7-inch, 800x480 resistive touchscreen and HDMI smarts.

The niftier AndyPad Pro costs £179, but has a capacitive touchscreen with 1024x600 resolution, 16GB of storage and Bluetooth. Best of all, both come with Android Honeycomb, so you know the software will be top notch.
