A £49 iPod touch killer? Sign us up!
Well, what do we have here? British gadget firm Storage Options has a brand new media player slash tablet out today, and at 4.3-inches, it’s the perfect iPod touch killer. But what’s that? It costs just a fifth of the price? Where do we sign?
We’ve seen some impressive low price gadgets running Google’s Android operating system of late, including a £150 netbook, but the Scroll Pocket from Storage Options just about takes the biscuit – and the entire biscuit packet.
For £49, you get a tiny tablet just 12mm thick running Android 4.0 so you can load up all your favourite apps and games. There’s 4GB of storage on board for all your media, which you can add another 32GB to with a micro SD card.
When you consider that the newest iPod touch, out very soon, costs upwards of £249, it starts to look remarkably tempting. Even if it doesn’t have access to Google’s Play app store, there are now alternatives including Amazon’s Kindle Appstore. Rest assured we’ll be hunting it down for a full review so stay tuned – in the meantime, the Scroll Pocket is available from the company’s website, Amazon and Dabs.com now.
