Review: disgo Tablet 8104

disgo Tablet 8104 is a tablet device running Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The 8104 is one of the first tablets to be released using Google’s latest Android software. With a 10.1” touch-screen, the 8104 offers users an affordable tablet while using the latest in Android technology.

It includes “disgo apps” and Slide ME connection which allows fast and easy access to 1000’s of Android Apps. There is no Google Play marketplace which is a shame a bit disappointing but for the price, you can sort of live with out it.

I been testing this out now for a bit and for the price of £149.99 its not too bad, there are some things i did not like, like no Google Play marketplace, no back camera, a bit of screen lag and the fact that it is a bit slow, but you have to take into account that this is only a £149.99 Tablet, so for the price its not too bad and i was not expecting this to be super fast for the price anyway.

I would recommend this for basic things like, reading/writing emails, updating tweeter/facebook, making a few notes and things like that. I don't think this would be good for watching Hi-Def videos but as i said for the price its not too bad.

I think the over all BIG disappointing thing about this tablet is the fact there is no Google Play Market Place.
