Check out the specs but I can't see where this device improves significantly on my Kogan 7" tablet which runs Gingerbread, also has a capacitive screen and can be bought on ebay for under £100.

They are comparable devices, certainly. Not sure where you can get it for under £100 though, as Kogan retails for around £150 in these post-release times - unless you're talking about "proper" auction listing. The main differences are the dual-core processor and GPS (which, as far as I can see, the Kogan doesn't feature). The carry case and USB converter cable are also neat additions.

I will admit to a slip of the keyboard here - I actually meant to bemoan the lack of Honeycomb primarily, not Gingerbread. Not something good to get mixed up as a tech writer, but hey, we're all human.

Kogan Agora is only £119 + p&p direct from Kogan UK.

Jonty and Al, you're not comparing like for like. The Time2Touch HC701A Tablet has a Dual Core Cortex A9 Processor and has Full HD 1080p playback ,with a standby battery time of 7 days and active battery time of 6.5hours. I'm afraid the product mentioned above doesn't even come close.

I was simply pointing out that the Kogan is a lot cheaper, runs Gingerbread and is similar in some important ways. It's true the Kogan uses an A8 processor, but I'm not so sure that would make a lot of difference. And, given that the battery life and video playback of the Time2Touch is questioned in the review, is it really worth the extra? Perhaps it is, but as price is such an important factor at this end of the market I'm sure my original comment was valid.
