*** iPhone4 is half the weight!
*** iPhone4 has the same features plus TWO cameras

Come on, don't you get it people - this POS is DOA!?!??! Lolz
How can an entirely factual post ever be voted down?
Oh, hold on, it's up against an Apple device. Ignore what I said....
Anyway, still too expensive - needs to be cheaper than the iPad, or people will chose the Apple, because, well, it's an Apple.
Still not worth the cost
£249 tops, but 6x the cost of a dodgy Chinese tablet? Simply not worth it.
What about the small low-res screen
It might be smaller and lighter, but it has a much smaller and lower resolution screen. Yet it still costs as much as the iPad. I don't consider that to be good value for money.
Should also be
Half the price
Getting a bit confrontational there, nobody has even mentioned the iPad.. it's almost as if you were paid to post that...
As Anonymous said, £529.. no way.
Oh dear, how to choose?
They're both out of my budget, but at least I know people who are using the iPad, and can tell me how it works in practice. And the bigger screen might matter a lot.
By Apple Logic
More Expensive = More Good
So this tablet MUST be better than the iPad.
It isn't even one of the better Android tablets and a 7inch screen, it's really taking the P charging that much!
It should be less than half the price for a 7 inch screen.
Which are the better tablets?
Got any links or names for better Android tablets? Serious question - I fully intend to buy a 7" tablet, and if there is something better than the Galaxy Tab around, please do point me in the right direction!
I'm not interested in something not quite as good but cheaper (Viewsonic), or not quite as good but bigger (iPad) - 7" is the size and more importantly weight-class I want, and I'm looking for the best, not the cheapest.
sorry, one of the big -ve for the iPad was its size. it is actually a little too big (and heavy!) for its purpose (IMHO). 7 inch is a better formfactor.
however, yes, there are plenty of cheap (80 quid to 160 quid) Android tablets on the market (look on amazon! wowser!) - yet, those ALL have cheap resistive screens...so no multitouch etc
in the end, its smaller (and in tesco words, 'every little helps') but, even with SD card and cameras, its just a little too much. 300-400 quid would probably make it a very tough temptation to avoid.
It IS Tesco's online selling it after all which means its already overpriced.
Missing the point entirely.
1058 Tesco club points is the equivalent of like, 49.8Bill pounds, the equivalent of the UK budget on education.
Now, to put it bluntly, I'm as thick as sh++, but I'm not fuck+++ stupid.
Bet the queues at Tesco's for this are longer than your penis, so what does that say about Tesco's or if I really cared, about the size of your penis.
Although if it's also being sold for 1058 clubcard points....
.... then you get one free with every £50-ish quids worth of shopping! Bargain. (I know BTW)
At that price
I'll go running to jobs.
