Carphone Warehouse has slashed the price of its Avoca seven inch tablet to £49.
The device is currently less than half price instore and online. The Android Jelly Bean tablet has 8GB of storage, a front facing camera and wi-fi connectivity.
Graham Stapleton, Carphone Warehouse UK CEO, said: 'We know that over a third of tablet purchases are for children and family use but that one of the main barriers to not buying a tablet is cost. Our Android 7” tablet smashes right through the previous lowest priced tablets and is perfect for families and anyone wanting a modern, portable tablet at a bargain price. I know a tablet will be top of many Christmas lists this year and this price makes top technology affordable for even more people, so we’re expecting this to be hugely popular.'
David Phelan, mobile technology adviser at Carphone Warehouse, said: 'Not only are many tablets becoming more affordable, they’re also now offering more bang for the buck. Carphone Warehouse’s Avoca 7 at £49 is a bargain. It runs on Jelly Bean, the latest version of Android software, so can run all the top Android apps, and, unlike many tablets, has a memory card slot so you can add more storage space if needed. With up to 8 hours battery life and weighing 350g it’s super-portable and perfect for travelling as well as using at home.'
