If you’re looking for a cheap 7-inch tablet, look no further than Dabs.com. The Zoostorm SL8 Mini is currently on sale for a price of only £69.98 – a very decent price for a 7-inch tablet running Android Ice Cream Sandwich. It is light, powerful, elegant and, most importantly, cheap.

Zoostorm SL8 Mini Review – Is 7” the New Trend?

Maybe the brand Zoostorm is not a very resonant one in the field of tablets, but if they continue rolling out tablets like the SL8 mini, we’ve got a feeling it’s a brand we will be hearing more of in the future. They didn’t come up with a revolutionary product that will turn the world upside down, but rather a product that packs some decent specs and doesn’t cost a fortune.

One of the things that make the Zoostorm SL8 Mini stand out is its screen – a 7-inch LED multi-touch screen providing a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, which is quite decent compared to the resolution of 800 x 480 found in other tablets in this price range. As a result, movies, web pages and pretty much everything looks very good on the screen, comparable to the Acer Iconia A110, a tablet that has the same screen specs but costs £100 more than this one.

A small let-down of the tablet is its single-core processor, which may struggle a bit if you put the tablet to heavy use and excessive multi-tasking. However, since we’re talking about a 7-inch device here, we don’t think you’ll be using it the way you use your home PC, so things should be fine.

The presence of a mini-HDMI port is a noticeable advantage of the tablet, allowing you to stream content to your big screen TV without sacrificing quality, which is a good thing considering the fact that the tablet is powerful enough to run Full HD 1080p content.
