D7 is the name of a little-known Nirvana track, and a quick spot of 21st century Googling reveals that it is in fact a cover, the original being performed by The Wipers. Every day’s a school day.
It’s also the name of a brand new 7in tablet, specifically the Gemini D7 from UK network Three, costing £99 bundled with a portable MiFi device.
The Gemini D7 is the latest in a long line of budget tablet contenders, though again we’re wondering why consumers wouldn’t fork out a slither more for something like a Google Nexus 7 or an Amazon Kindle Fire.
Speaking of Amazon, the incredibly terse press release boasts that the Gemini D7 has access to the Amazon Appstore. It’s not clear if it has access to the wider Google Play app store, but we’re assuming that’s the case. Probably.
Other Gemini D7 specs include a 7in display (800 x 480), an unnamed dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal storage (with microSD welcoming a further 32GB), and Jelly Bean Android 4.something.
Three’s resident fox (and head of devices), Sylvia Chind, purrs: “The Gemini widens our range of tablets and is a good device for those that want basic functionality or who are new tablet users. Combined with our MiFi you can keep up to date and stay online no matter where you are.”
