Andy Pad Android tablet spotted

It might sound like a children's TV character, but the Andy Pad is Britain's attempt to get a slice of the tablet market.

The device has been spoken about for some time, but it's been captured on camera for the first time this week. OK, it's not the best shot in the world, but as the photo was taken unofficially at a private launch event, you can't really complain. It does the job though - as you can see, it's a seven-inch white tablet. Yes, white. No problems for us Brits to create a white tablet it would seem.

According to Engadget, the tablet was shown off at the event in two variations, an 8GB model, which will sell for £129, plus a 16GB model, which is yours for £169. Functionality is basic (a resistive touch-screen for example) and the version of Android isn't yet confirmed, but if you are paying a basement price, you can't really expect high-end features.

However, if you want a little bit more, the company has confirmed an upgraded model going by the name of the Andy Pad Pro model. That packs a capacitive display, front and rear-facing cameras and other 'additional features'. No price on that, but it's probably going to be at the lower end once again. We'll keep you posted.
