nice tab for kids.

Sounds like a good deal to me, like the idea about restricted for child use, and can be unlocked and used as normal with passcode.

Tesco website states "...With 1GB of storage and 512MB of RAM,...."
512mb ram is a bit low.

bought two, one for me and one for our lass, for 48 quid, free del to local store, its a STEAL!

Nice find OP, ordered

this is old version wont support google play unlike newer 10s hence why they are selling off. Also no bumper and old spec thats why i set mine back

stop making uneducated scare mongering comments, this can play apps store ,and kurio provide the link for original google play. You can also root it for adult use fully. but it is a kids tablet, it has a fantsastic 2.1 mp camera front and back. 1gb ram wow and i ordered 5

Most people are not going to want to mess about with rooting and google play will be cheaper and better for kids APPs.

Also seems as if the RAM will be 512mb and not 1gb which will be pretty rubbish even for a kids tablet.

If the tablet is the newer version then it probably a decent buy but if its the old version then doubt its worth it

These are perfect for kids. No need to spend loads on one when this is more than enough for a kid!

Those specs are rubbish, there is no way that tablet has 4gb of RAM.

Clearly set out to mislead people.

Even the tesco listing is misleading. I states at the top it has 4GB of STORAGE and 1gb of RAM, it then says in the product description that it has 1GB of Storage and 512MB of RAM.

Regardless of which one is right and which one is wrong, You WILL NOT get 4GB of storage to use, once the Rom has taken up its share and then the pre installed Apps (some of which will be useless) I recon you'll be left with more like 3GB tops but probably closer to 2.5GB.

CHEAP TABLET FOR A REASON. ITS RUBBISH. Let your kids inform you when they are complaining about it not working/being slow.

Storage memory : 4GB

Machine Washable No - wipe clean only

only joking

Tesco mentions both 512k and 1gb of ram depending where you look on the page (_;) nice big screen for kids though.

It has an sd slot to expand memory upto 32gb so will be fine

1gb of storage is appalling. Wish I'd known I wouldn't have voted hot

not really. the expandable memory in andorid is used to store personal media files such as photos, downloaded files, music and films. apps cannot be fully moved to external storage, when they do allow you to move to external storage, only about 10% or so of the app file is moved, the rest stays on your device.

people need to wise up to the fact that low storage and cpu become problems very quickly if youre going to be using it for apps. i know a few people who bough the 7inch visio tab (or whatever its called) from Carphone and after a few weeks of use it was collecting dust as it became "too slow". these were your non rooting/general mass users, who pay no attention to specs, they just bought on the fact that it was a tab and it was cheap.

these cheap tabs are only good for web browsing and media, thats about it.

The 4GB is referring to RAM not physical memory. RAM helps the speed of the machine. Adding an SD will only give you more memory to save things, not speed it up.

Could not agree more if your on look out for tablet look for at least a quad core. I am finding my nook HD out of date CPU to be a big problems as apps getting bigger and bigger. Hard to vote hot on this when them memo pads were £59 only a short time ago.

4gb should be enough memory if you are only using some of the kids apps , wont be able to put many files like large video on that memory but , low storage shouldnt make much different to the cpu performance . If you wanted to add video and photos etc the sd card slot would be a good idea. I have samsung tab 2 10.1 and that handles all apps okay and it only has 1ghz dual core and 1gb ram so dont see why this would struggle with any of the current apps.

Ordered one for collection lets see what quality it is, but for 48 quid I am sure I can not complain about it

This model has 4gb memory ( storage ) and 1gb of ram , so sd card would increase the storage from 4gb upto a possible 32gb , wouldnt speed the tablet up as not increasing the ram

Banned

cold, not Ipad Air

isn't this meant for kids..

IS IT 1GB RAM OR 512MG RAM!!! That's THE DEAL BREAKEr!!!!

just a UI overlay, can be disabled/removed and you'd have a normal android tablet again

It is 1gb ram as specs of 7" one is don't look at specs for 10s as that's the new model this model is only 940×600 screen.

Has anyone bought this?? DId you get a confirmation EMAIL?

thank you

This tablet is fantastic value. Ordered one very quickly as very cheap way to have films on microsd card up to 32gb and connect directly to tv as output 1080p via mini hdmi. Best bargain of the year in my humble opinion so far.
As an added bonus had £5 clubcard voucher to take of my total. Thanks for the post very well spotted by you delighted to be able to get one.

Our first hard drive pc had 20mb.. Before that it was just 5.25" floppies, which you would spend half your life swapping. Never mind pi££%&g about in DOS allocating your 512kb between extended and expanded memory for certain programme to work(command.com and batch.INI are burn't into my brain). But that was an improvement over our first PC.....

We bought the kids innotabs 3s for Christmas, not too impressed with them. Tempted to get this.
