Not a bad price for a Tablet ! Was £109 at one point:

Running on the intuitive Windows 8.1 operating system, the Connect 7 gives you everything you need for web browsing and gaming at a click or swipe of your finger. With an integrated front-facing 2-megapixel camera and rear 2-megapixel camera, you can take impromptu shots of the world around you and join video calls with friends and family.

A 1-year subscription to Office 365 Personal means you have access to Microsoft’s flagship office suite, including Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel from the word go. For your peace of mind, the Connect 7’s included parental controls keep you and your family safe online, whilst advert-free app experiences ensure that you can enjoy your entertainment uninterrupted.

The Connect 7 is powered by an Intel Atom Processor with 1GB of RAM and comes equipped with a 7" TFT touch screen and built-in stereo speakers. SDHC, USB 2.0 and HDMI ports, along with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® 4.0 enables you to connect to a range of devices. While 32GB of on-board storage gives you plenty of space to store your music, video and images files. The Connect 7 has a battery life of around 6 hours, so you can take it with you wherever you go.

Note from a post in forum:
Possible £10 off with code.
Used this code TDX-YGPK which i found in the book of codes in the hudl 2 i bought as a present.

It really is an impressive device and amazing to think that Tesco has now … It really is an impressive device and amazing to think that Tesco has now lowered their price to £99 during Cyber Monday. You can check out the Tesco Connect Windows tablet reviews here if you don’t believe us, with the majority of feedback so far all suggesting that this is a deal you don’t want to miss out on.

Nor is the store or the Duplo Lego interface.

Better off with Android.

Any codes besides the new account one?

How does this compare to the Linx tablet which has been offered for a similar price recently?

this or the hudl 2 ?

Is this a re-branded Linx? Looks the same. I would also prefer buying from Tesco so I hope you get as much heat as the other deal

I imagine the extra (what like £10?) is worth it incase things go wrong. Far easier to walk into a Tesco than contact Linx, whoever they are.

No GPS, or would have been a cheap sat nav. Linx doesn't have it either.

Linx is a UK company but I see your point. I have the Linx 10, great bit of kit for the money (£179.99 with the keyboard) although I have had issues with the tablet staying on when docked and closed. Did have a bit of a grime when I saw the straps deal for the tablet itself.

Is this same spec as Linx?

Not as good a deal as the staples one but this is still good value if you missed that.

Just paid £79 yesterday. I didn't realise it couldn't get Google playstore. I've got android games on other tablet and don't want to pay for them again on this windows tablet. Think I will get another huddle but good price for this lynx tablet.

*hudl.

If buying a Linx tablet has taught me anything, its this.
If you need full Windows, buy a laptop.
If you need a cheap tablet for casual gaming and social media, buy Android / Kindle Fire.

Have a linx 10 and its a great tablet not had any problems with it

Sounds like this one - unlike the Linx (and others) - has a dedicated charging port, so it can be used straight out of the box with USB peripherals and be mains powered at the same time. Can anyone confirm?

Other Port Connections -- 3.5mm headphone socket, AC power input

What is it about windows on the linx you think is poor?


Does anyone know if this or the linx tablets can boot Linux? Can you get into the UEFI and boot from USB?

It only has one USB port according to the photos.

Exactly the same ports and buttons in exactly the same place as the Linx 7. The case looks very slightly different, the buttons look chunkier and there are plastic bars over the speaker instead of metal gauze. But they might be the same and Tesco may have uploaded photos of a prototype rather than the final retail version.

Please could you confirm how it (Tesco Connect 7") charges? Is it via a dedicated charging port, or is it solely via the (one and only) micro-USB port?

Try Bluestacks for playing Android apps on a Windows tablet. No idea if this tablet is powerful enough though

if you want a camera buy a camera.

Last time I tried this it was totally useless as the app I most wanted it for required a long press of the screen for full functionality - made ANY app requiring a long press unusable - do you know if they have fixed this?

Have to confess, all my tablets are Android - never used it. Was going by the reviews (admittedly mixed) and previous comments. Games don't usually need a long press. At the end of the day, its free so probably worth a bash if you already have games to try on it. Most emulators get better over time, check the version number to the website and see if its been updated.

Apparently there is a competitor called 'Andy'. You could give that a try.

Interesting, will give that a look.

I was really using it for "Perfect Viewer" on my Surface. Windows so called store is really bereft of good and functional comic book readers and I used to use Perfect Viewer on my old Android tablet. Long presses for various functions though.

Settled on "Cover" in the Windows store for now, not anywhere near the amount of options though, but it does...

Thanks for confirming!

Had the Linx 8 for a few weeks now (I know it is not the same tablet but bear with me). What you are getting here is a fully functional PC of the sort of spec akin to a netbook. It's not a super-duper Android tablet with it's Android optimised games and apps: it is a touch screen enabled Windows 8 PC. I use mine in place of my desktop to perform basic tasks such as browsing, watching stuff off my NAS, downloading stuff to my NAS, accessing stuff on my networked PCs and generally most day to day things that I'd otherwise have to boot my PCs and sit in front of them to do. It saves me some time and effort and keeps 'er indoors off my back because I can do most things whilst walking around the house, in the bath or having a crap instead of vegitating in a stooped position 'in front of that bloody computer'.
I've had Android tablets for years but these Windows PC/tablets are a totally different animal.
