The Streak 7 tablet is now available in the UK for an affordable £299. The amount translates to about 8 US though the US price is expected to be even cheaper. However, those in the UK will only be getting the Wi-Fi only version of the tablet and perhaps it is this that explains the relatively decent price tag.
Price apart, the Streak 7 includes some nice specifications such as a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor along with 16 GB of storage while on top if these is the 7 inch 800 x 480 pixel display which could have benefited with some more pixels. The tablet will also have on board a 1.3 megapixel fixed focus camera at the front and a 5 megapixel camera at the rear with auto focus and flash. Also for those who have been ruing the fact that the Streak 7 is still hooked on to Android 2.2 can find solace from the recent Dell announcement that has promised the upgrade to Android Honeycomb soon. Another not so likeable feature of the tablet is its pretty ordinary battery life of around 4 hours or so from its 2780 mAh battery.
In any case, the Streak 7 can still make for a strong case for itself at the price it is currently on offer.

The Archos Arnova 10 tablet is among the very few in the world that you can buy for a price as low as just 9. For that amount of money, what you get is a proper tablet running Android with a 10 inch display though the version on board is a rather disappointing Android 2.1. Of course it would be silly to expect a whole lot of goodies packed in a tablet with a sub 0 price tag though the good thing is, the Arnova from the French manufacturer isn’t that hopeless either.
Built around an ARM-based processor, the Arnova 10 sports a 10.1 inch resistive touchscreen display having resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The rest of the feature the Arnova 10 boasts of include an integrated webcam for live video chat, USB 2.0 port as well as a USB host connector along with WiFi 802.11 b/g to connect to the internet. The tablet comes with 4 GB of internal memory though there is also a SDHC card slot to help matters if you need more.
The Arnova 10 also comes with good multimedia abilities, capable as it is of playing back 720p HD video as well as MP4, H.264, and RealVideo. Integrated mic and speaker further adds to the excellent entertainment feature of the Arnova 10. Claimed battery life for the Arnova 10 is 6 hours when playing video files though it can be as far stretched as 40 hours when playing back music files with the screen turned off.
Mertado is offering the Arnova 10 for 9.99 though one will have to hurry to make the most of the reduced price as its valid for less than the next 24 hours.

'Red Riding Hood' Goes From Fairy Tale To Movie To...YA Novel?
"Little Red Riding Hood" was never a fairy tale of the Prince Charming variety, so it must have taken a bit of imagination to picture it as the basis of a heart-stopping romantic adventure story with a compelling love triangle. But the folks behind "Red Riding Hood" had a few tricks up their sleeves to [...]
