UK high-street fashion retailer Next has launched its 10 inch own-brand Android tablet computer. The tablet, which is currently available to purchase for £180 on the retailer`s online store, has baffled critiques struggling to understand why the retailer has opted for this product – tablets are emerging as a very popular computing platform but spectators will observe this new move with slight cynicism.
The UK based retailer, Next, offers exciting and quality fashion and accessories for men, women and kids together with a full range of homewares.
- 10 inch WXGA LCD touchscreen display
