One more established maker who is pushing the price of Android tablets down is Gemini. It has just unveiled a pair of JoyTAB range Android tablets, with the cheaper model of the two coming at just £79.99

Both tablets, the other is a 3G version, named the JoyTAB Duo 7 3G which retails for £130, include a dual-core Cortex A9 chipset backed up by 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage space, SD card slot and a front and back dual cameras (2MP and 0.3MP). They both run Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), though the more expensive model will upgrade to 4.2 shortly.

Now that’s quite a lot of tech goodness for your cash.

Apart from the 3G the other main difference between the two is the battery size, The pricier model has a 5800mAh capacity battery as opposed to the 2800mAh battery inside the cheapie.
