£90 Android Tablet comes to Toys 'R' Us

Toys ‘R’ Us has signed up the Elonex eTouch android tablet Pocket-lint first saw at IFA in Germany, selling it to those who want it for just £90.

The price means it becomes the cheapest Android tablet on the block beating the Next and Disgo tablets by almost £100. It's also considerably cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

There will be two models available; a 7-inch tablet that costs £89.99 and a 10-inch model that costs £149.99 - both look like the iPad.

“This is yet another new, exciting and innovative product that we are confident to bring to our sales floor. It is important that Toys ‘R’ Us inspire this young and inspirational market offering the best affordable products on the marketplace”, said Mike Coogan, marketing director at Toys ‘R’ Us on the reason it will be stocking the new model next to this year's must have toys.

The 10-inch tablet (£149.99) weighs just 695g and has a 2GB SSD on board which can be expandable via a micro SD card slot that includes a 2GB micro SD card.

It has an Android 2.1 mobile operating system and runs on a ARM 11 1GHz processor. The tablet has a 2.0 USB and a mini USB port along with a 3.5-inch audio port. Microphone, stereo speaker with volume adjustment and a power adaptor are all part of the package.

The Toy retailer is clearing hoping parents grabbing Christmas presents for their kids will snap up a tablet for themselves too. 

They will both offer marketplace support allowing you to download apps like Angry Birds.
