Scroll Excel – The Gadget Show Best Budget Tablet PC
As seen on the Gadget Show's Best Budget Tablet test, Suzie ditched her usual array of tech and instead used a budget tablet to carry out her daily tasks such as web browsing, playing games and watching films. The two tablets below really impressed in an over-crowded budget tablet market and at under £130 are a real bargain.
The Scroll Excel
The Android 2.3 powered Scroll Excel offers a capacitive touch screen, is very fast and accurate and offers great clarity of picture. It has full Android Market and claims to be the only tablet to be able to play 3D films to your TV. Suzi was extremely impressed with the scrolling and speed of the tablet, which has a premium feel for a budget price.

This 7″ budget tablet runs the excellent Android 2.3 and has a camera on the front and back. Its 1.2GHz processor is fast enough for gaming and the 16GB of RAM, amazing for a tablet of this price. The AndyPad is a sturdy and good looking tablet, despite it's funny name, overall it impressed Suzi and The Gadget Show crew.
Also available, but not in the Gadget Show test, is an even cheaper version of the Scroll Excel. The Android enabled Scroll Essential is currently only £69.99 and is well worth a look.
