Looks to be a similar spec as the linx 7 & 8 inch tablets - apart from the lower res screen and only 16GB instead of 32GB storage.

does anyone know if you can use these windows tablets for steam streaming?

Slightly inferior spec to the Linx and £10 more expensive.

I ran into town today and as I crossed the road which was stalled with traffic one of the drivers started shouting at me not to cut across his car which was going absolutely nowhere.

Britain you're losing the plot.

Based on those specs, this is vastly inferior to the Linx7 posted earlier @ £59.99

The Linx 7 does have better specs but from what I can see the Linx doesn't have a USB input which renders it useless for my needs. The Zoostorm has a USB port and despite being a slightly lower spec is actually more versatile in my opinion.

I just want to transfer files using a USB stick and also upload my workouts from my Nike+ GPS watch. The Linx 7 doesn't even have a micro USB port according to Amazon and several other websites. The Linx 8 and Linx 10 both have micro USB ports though but both cost more than the Zoostorm.

Okay, I've just watched a YouTube unboxing of a Linx 7 and it DOES have a micro USB port. That's ideal. I'll get one online now. Amazon need to update the specs info on the Linx 7 as it makes no mention of a USB port. Hmm.

According to Linx website these 7" models have microUSB input - couldn't you just buy a cheap adaptor lead?

Linx does have USB. Ebuyers photo shows it, Linx website states it, and reviewers on Amazon and Ebuyer sometimes reference it.

Not just Amazon, seems hardly anywhere actually states the full specs. Amazon,Ebuyer,Ebay all neglect to mention. Near had a heartattack after buying one from the other threads deal. Then seen someone dropped the clanger of possibly No USB. spend time hunting down more info just incase! Someone who had actually had an 8" model was commenting about needing a USB OTG connector then made me think did the 7" not and the 8" have lol

Thanks everyone for your help! Yeah I'll get a USB OTG adaptor and go for the Linx 7, it seems great for its price tag!

Good spot! I'll eagerly await that deal. I'd prefer the 8" to be fair as I'm so used to using my iPad that 7" tablets look tiny. No innuendo intended.

If this really is only 16GB you are quickly going to run into trouble..
Without WimBoot the OS will eat ~10GB if its been done well, more if not, and once windows updates bulk up its sxs folder, and apps install common files to the c drive even though you install them to the card, it will simply stop working as it'll run out of disk space.

I'm guessing its Wimbooted from the beginning, in which case the problem isn't quite as bad.. but its still too small really. 32GB seems to be JUST enough for me in day to day use even when wimbooted.

I've no idea what they'll do I'm afraid. But at least their returns policy is solid.

Can someone post the link to the £59 Linx 7 deal please? Also how do windows tablets do in terms of games and apps compared with android?

Where is the linx7 selling for £59.99? Amazon has it for £87

Cheers Rusty, weird, been on Amzn since scratch and never seen that bit!!!

As long as it turns up and is not a Christmas Jumper as alternative stock, then cool!

For £37 more after cashback, I wonder how the Lenovo Tab S8 50's compare. Albeit Windows/Android.

FYI, the Linx I got from Amazon today is the 32GB model.

Just got a Linx 8" From Sainsbury's, seems awesome for £69!

My office won't activate though? says error 771. I already have a full version of office so wondered if I could give this office to a family member or activate in next year when mine runs out?

I bought one of these Zoostorm tablets from ASDA and took it back within the hour. The Viewing angles on the screen are absolutely awful.
