Say hello to the AndyPad, the £129 Android tablet

Say hello to the AndyPad, the £129 Android tabletTablets are pricey luxury gadgets for the well-heeled, right? Well, yes, for the most part, but not for much longer.

Enter the AndyPad, the UK-made slate with the gloriously everyman name and a price tag of just £129.

We first caught wind of the AndyPad at the start of the month, when its maker promised us a tablet that would “transform the tablet PC universe”. Big words indeed, but having now been told a little more about the AndyPad, we're actually inclined to believe them. Well, a little bit anyway.

First of all, the name: as you may have guessed, it's a reference to the fact that this is an Android tablet, and specifically Android 2.3 Gingerbread (you didn't really expect Honeycomb at that price, did you?).

It's a 7-inch affair, and features a standard-size HDMI port offering 1080p HD output. It's powered by a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, and has Wi-Fi on board as well as a smattering of pre-loaded apps, including the likes of Facebook and Twitter.

In other words, it's a legitimate tablet contender but at the kind of price we've simply never seen before. It's expected to go on sale in September.

Surely by then there will be other devices out there that will be just as competitive?
