Next launch own brand tablet
Surprise launch is low cost, low spec
In a move that nobody really saw coming, highstreet brand Next has launched an own brand tablet pc, imaginately called the Next 10" Tablet.
The device includes a 10" WXGA LCD touchscreen display, 2GB Storage (internal) and an 8gb Micro SD card , 1ghz Arm 11 processor and 802.11b/g WiFi, 2 x USB ports, microphone and headphone socket. The device is clearly aimed at casual home users rather than dedicated techies, however. It only boasts a three hour battery life, which pretty much restricts it to sofa browsing and home use. Additionally, the screen is single rather than multi touch.
