Root-tee-tootle-tee-toot! It's time for... bah-bah-bah-baaahhh!! The latest entries to the budget end of the burgeoning tablet computer market are 7-inch models from Disgo and Morgan, and could lighten your wallet by as little as £85.
The Morgan 7-inch Google Android Tablet with Touchscreen Technology -- catchy name -- costs just £85. For that less-than-princely sum you get a less-than-princely 400MHz ARM CPU, 3-hour battery life, and Android 1.7.4. Unlike the iPad it does offer an SD card slot, a webcam and USB connection, and you probably won't mind so much if you drop it. The Morgan 7-inch is available from 18 October.
The Disgo Tablet 6000 looks pretty swanky by comparison, packing Android 2.1, HDMI connection, and an iMAPx200 1GHz processor with 256MB of RAM. At £180, it's bundled with a 2GB microSD card.
