Linx 7 Windows 8.1 tablet goes on sale in the UK for just £80

In recent months, we've seen the market flooded with a wave of affordable Windows tablets and phones. Acer, for example, unveiled its Iconia Tab 8 W last month, priced at $150 USD (roughly £94 GBP / €119 EUR); Toshiba launched the Encore Mini tablet for just $119 (£74 / $94); and more recently, HP announced a range of low-cost Windows tablets and notebooks, including the Stream 7 slate for just $99 (£62 / €79).

The latest such example has gone on sale in the United Kingdom for just £79.98 ($128 / €102), making it one of the most affordable Windows tablets ever to go on sale in the UK. Key specs of the Linx 7 include:

  • 7-inch IPS LCD with 1280x800px resolution
  • Quad-core Intel Bay Trail-T processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB storage (plus microSD slot)
  • 2MP rear camera
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • 3500mAh battery

The device also comes with a free one-year Office 365 Personal subscription, which includes unlimited OneDrive storage. You can also get a further £30 ($48 / €38) off the cost of the tablet at Ebuyer if you trade in your old tablet when buying the Linx 7, bringing the price down to just £49.98 ($80 / €63).

The Linx 7 won't win any awards for stunning design, and it's unlikely to be a mobile powerhouse, but for those looking for a simple, affordable tablet for occasional use, it certainly seems worth considering.
