The official page over at the online retailer’s site says the slate will cost £605.34 for the white 3G model. The slimline tablet only measures 8.6mm thin and tips the scales at just 470g. Android Honeycomb is sitting pretty under the hood.

The device is a decent option for those who aren’t keen on an iPad 2, but don’t fancy the capacious stylings of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
