The Ainol Elf II
With a price tag (£90- £115) closer to the Versus Touchpad's than the Nexus 7's, the Ainol Novo 7 ELF II delivers a lot of tech for the cash.
Under the bonnet it has a 1.5GHz dual-core AmLogic ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, which can be bolstered by a microSD expansion card.
The resolution of the 7-inch display (1024x600 pixels) also delivers more than some of the other tablets on this list, though not the Nexus 7.
Like the others, wireless data connectivity is omitted but the ELF II does come with Wi-Fi, and is the first on the list to offer a mini-HDMI out port for connecting to external devices for big screen playback. It also has a 2-megapixel front-facing camera that bests the Nexus 7's 1.2-megapixel affair.
Unlike some other budget, non-Google certified Android devices, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS also brings access to the Google Play store.
