Chinese computer tablets

The iPad from Apple has caused other manufacturers to bring out their own iteration of a tablet computer. No more than six months later, tablets from major electronics
manufacturers are released. There are also a specific group of tablets that have been trying to conquer a specific market: Chinese computer tablets for the really budget

Chinese computer tablets price range is from £100 to £200. Prices are often determined by is storage capacity (2GB – 32GB), processing power (300Mhz – 600Mhz) and screen size (5 inches, 7 inches or 10 inches).

Android Powered

If there’s one feature common in these tablets, it’s the operating system. The Chinese tablets are powered by Google’s open source OS – Android. Created for mobile phones, Android can be easily ported to tablets without the phone feature.

But even though these devices use one operating system, the versions are different. Some have Android 1.5 while others feature the 1.9 version. To a casual observer, it doesn’t make any difference but those who have worked with Android knows that every version is different and the earlier versions have limited capability and prone to crashes.

The idea of “you get what you pay for” is perfectly applied in tablets. A really affordable tablet will give you a resistant touch screen that runs very slow due to its processing power and RAM and the battery capacity is no more than 2 hours.

If you’re considering purchasing this gadget, make sure that you have the best
specifications possible. Look for a gadget with warranty as this is very prone to breakage.
