Time2Touch HC701A

Originally reviewed by Andrew Williams 30 August 2011

An ultra-portable note-taking wonder, this is our top budget pick for in-lecture note-taking. It's all down to its USB host function. This means that, using the bundled mini-USB to female USB cable, you can plug a keyboard or mouse into the tablet, making it a fantastic tiny typing tool. Buy a cheapie mini keyboard to go with it and you're ready to go. If you need a tablet right now for under £200, this is our top pick. A tablet that solves most of the problems of the Archos 70, while only costing around £30 more, the Time2Touch tablet is seriously impressive in several respects. With a dual-core 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM, it's very powerful for a budget device, and has the responsive capacitive touchscreen to make using it fun too. There are a few dark clouds looming over the Time2Touch tablet, mind. It's pretty buggy, so you'll have to get used to the occasional restart if you're going to make it your tablet buddy. It's going to be updated soon according to the manufacturer though. Feeling brave? Why not take the plunge?
