That's expired now, back to £75. Plus this is an android tablet which done may prefer.

Does this tablet use its ram properly, I bought a cheap tablet recently and it fills the ram full of apps and then won't upgrade anything cos the 1gig ram is chocka!

Polaroid Tab is fantastic except the speakers.

National? Was it a proper label if so I'll go get one tonight, hits all my requirements.

great price for a good tablet

Proper SEL. Price change came through this morning.

wow great price for an 8 foot tablet. only joking but one apostrophe for feet.

This is a rebranded version of the Hisense Sero 8, which is £20 more. Very good tablet, impressed with RAM

Change the incorrect measurement! Should be national or at least in ASDA Living Stores.

Release the geese! Another tesco-esque deal.
Went to Asda living ticketed and scanning at £79, checked it myself to make sure and got them to check on the pc. Shame as this is exactly the tablet deal I've been waiting for!

Strange, it came through on Dept 5 this morning (connected to head office). It's in Durham Living if it helps anyone.

Can anyone confirm if this has Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth Low Energy - BLE)?

Neither are available online though, just a holding page, what colours were in the instore deal? My store had grey ones at £79, any chance the price would fall tomorrow? When do the prices refresh?

That may be the reason. My store only stocks black and white varieties - these have gone down to £49. Price changes occur during the night and are printed off and actioned in the early morning so may be a chance tomorrow.

i had this tablet, its not a rebranded sero 8 like some on mentioned. it not a bad tablet at all, But i went through 5 chargers and in the end took it back for refund.

Good spot, been after a cheap tablet for ereader use, ordered for collection with Quidco £12, can't complain at £38. Heat.

They should have made it print pictures like the devices of old - that would be trick!

Beats the carphone warehouse one in resolution, camera and storage

Still £79 and my click and collect I managed to get to another store never turned up and Asda customer service won't refund or find out what happened, just told me to go to the store each day and check.
Won't be using them again, going to call the bank later.

Is this any good? I am willing to ignore the low res for this price obviously, but is performance actually good?

Amazon reviews shows lots of 1 star..

edit: Think the amazon reviews are for another model? But can't find this one on polaroid's website.

Thanks ordered one, for £49 worth a punt even if I only end up using it as an ereader.

Says not available !! Since morning. How did others manage?

Called me to say OOS. Have a higher model for 10 extra.

Thanks, got one for my son today from Eastgate (Bristol) and I must say its fab-looks like an IPad mini and ideal for playing games/ watching iplayer.

Not a bad deal, but you'll probably regret not getting something with a decent screen

Just picked one of these up in store. They had a big display priced up at £79, but had them at £49 behind the electrical desk counter.

Can confirm they are this price as been into a store today and the had a display stand full of them, they also got 10" ones can't quite remember the price though, it was either £79 or £89

Well my local one kindly phoned me at 7am this morning to cancel my collection.

my hudl 1 charging port has failed again. 3 swaps and a repaired unit.
Is the tablet from asda worth while?

Almost a HUKD wild goose chase, but got one in Forest Town Mansfield. Still a few in the display behind the counter
