This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Okay, it's not going to break any benchmark records and might go stone cold, but for a basic 3G 7" tablet with a reasonable screen from a decent brand name, seems like a good price.

Add a 3Gb preloaded sim for under £15 and you are good to go for on the move internet for £105.

Edit - price has dropped again to £85.82!!!

it can text for sure, on amazon someone commented that to make calls it'll need root.
Nah, I am waiting for super android tablets. Nexus 5 specs are going to the norm this time next year.
Please beware. the performance of this tablet is very bad as mentioned in c-net review. A refurbished nexus 7 for £10-20 more is far better deal. Ref. reviews.cnet.co.uk/ipa…62/

A refurbished Nexus 7 doesn't have 3G at that price point (you can get 3G Nexus 7's but they're north of £150) so it's not a fair comparison because the reason people would buy this is for the 3G capability not for blazing performance.

'Isn't good'? That's an understatement.X) It says,'avoid at all costs'. Thanks for the link. Saved me wasting my time.
Should I buy the Lenovo IdeaTab A2107?

A thousand times no. Its cheap price tag might be appealing, but sacrifices have been made everywhere, resulting in a tablet that's horrific in almost every way.
is this better than the £50 archos boxing day tablet from last year?

so true of many budget tabs. much better to spend extra for better one
I have this Tablet... £89.99 from Curry's 2 months ago on HUKD.

I have a Tesco SIM card in it, 3G works well.
You can text and make Skype calls (and other VOIP call with the right app) but not voice calls (that I can find)*.
Dual SIM (1x3G, 1x2G)
Micro USB, microSD, from & rear camera, ICS.
Very happy with it for <£100.
Lenovo a 9 inch quad core version for £150 but no 3G.

* TUGO might work, but even though my Tesco SIM card uses the O2 network it still said I wasn't an O2 customer... damn - I tried an O2 PAYG SIM, but it has to be a pay monthly contract.
"Technically functions as a tablet"

And that's a positive. awesome review
has anyone tried the Asus Fonepad?
was thinking of getting a cheap data sim and getting this as a present for a 14 year old girl that just plays games and facebooks
fuhu78888

has anyone tried the Asus Fonepad?


Yes Intel based but unlike previos Intel units this works really well. Modaco has details. It is very good I think Asus worked their usual magic on the design. Note as its Intel based there will likly be few if any custom roms etc. But if you are ok with the stock ROM it seems fine.
Mine was delivered today can't wait to go home n play with it, I will probably root it today and update you guys if It won't make direct calls
Price has dropped again. Now £87.92!

I've learnt to take things Cnet reviews (and those of many other tech blogs) with a pinch of salt. I'd take the word of 10 users over the word of 10 tech blogs. Your best bet to know if this is worth it for you is to either read detailed user reviews or buy it from a company like Amazon or Tesco Direct that not only adhere to Distance Selling Regulations but also have a fairly painless return policy. Tesco Direct goods can be returned in-store, saving on return postage and depending on how you classify the Amazon return, return costs can be free as well.
