Tight-fisted technology hipsters, my oh my have we got a treat for you. With gift-giving season disconcertingly close, now’s an appropriate time as any to think about all of the shiny new things your magpie-like nearest and dearest clearly want to own, but don’t actually plan to spend any of their own money on.
And let’s face it, the likelihood is that you have neither the cash, the energy nor the patience to trawl around for deals and don’t actually love them enough to make their dreams come true.
Fortunately, you can still bring a look of incredulity to the faces of your loved ones this Christmas with a tablet they’ve almost certainly never heard of. Gearbest is offering some juicy flash sale promotions on a range of products, with some models discounted by as much as 60%.
Imagine little Julie’s eyes light up as she pulls the covers off the Chuwi VI10 PLUS Tablet PC, a 10.8-incher with a quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, or the equally outlandish Teclast Tbook 16S 2 in 1 Tablet PC, a dual OS machine featuring an 11.6-inch, 1920 x 1080 display. “You shouldn’t have,” she may say. With 60% off both and an extra chunk shaved off the Teclast with the code TeclastPC, there’s no way you could have stopped yourself.
Right now, the 7.9-inch Xiaomi Mi Pad 2, with 16GB of storage, Android 5.1 and 2GB of RAM, is available for just £143.75 and the 10.1-inch, Windows 10-running Onda OBook 20 Plus Tablet with a quad-core processor and a healthy 4GB of RAM is up for grabs for just £135.80. You can get an extra few quid off the Onda by applying the discount code Plusablet, though it’s only valid for the first 20 buyers.
Meanwhile, the heavily discounted Jumper EZpad 5SE Tablet PC, another Windows 10 machine with a 10.6-inch, 1920 x 1080, a quad-core processor and 4GB of RAM, ships with a golden opportunity to crack a fantastic Christmas jumper joke.
