A pair of low-cost Android 4.1 Gemini tablets launched in the UK

Low-cost tablet maker Gemini unveiled two new 7-inch tablets in the UK. The first device, Gemini JoyTAB Duo 7, which only has Wi-Fi connectivity support, will sell for the low price of 79.99 GBP (about $124). That money gets a tablet with a dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 1GB of RAM, dual cameras (2-megapixel on the back, VGA front-facing one), 8GB of built-in storage, and an everything-but-solid 2,800mAh battery. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is running the show.

The second device, Gemini JoyTAB Duo 7 3G, adds 3G/HSPA connectivity and also a bigger 5,800mAh battery. However, for some reason Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is running the show, though update to Jelly Bean is promised for the near future. As for the price, the 3G model could be yours for 139.99 GBP, which translates into roughly $217.

If I had to pick between the two I would go for the former model. Simply put – it offers better bang for the buck. What do you think?
