The ten-inch tablet advertised on their website for £180 includes a touch screen, wifi, has 8Gb RAM and runs on Google’s Android OS. It’s not clear if this will be in-store as well. The tablet is currently not available next day but quotes stock delivery “within 3-4 days.” The tablet isn’t the only tablet device on the Next site it shares space with the Archos range of tablets.
Who’s next? Any guesses?
UPDATE – A nice press officer from Next gets in touch and updates us on the tablet. The Media Tablet was launched in the Next Christmas brochure last Thursday (September 23) and at present the Media Tablet is only available to buy via next.co.uk and the directory.
