At only €200 the Intenso tablet is an 8 inch budget wonder running Android 2.3, but as you might have guessed its price does mean that its compromised on performance. Its running a 1 GHz single core processor under its 8 inch capacitive touch screen in the classic 4:3 format with 800 x 600 screen resolution.
The Intenso 8 also comes with 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and a micro-SD slot so you can add on more if you need it. Connectivity you’ve got wifi, USB and an HDMI output, which can deliver full-HD TV. If you’re keen to use this device for Skype video chat it does come equipped with a 2-mega pixel camera on the front.
The Intenso Tablet does feel like its made of plastic and doesn’t leave a high quality impression in regards to the finish. However, once you have it in hand the display delivers decent colours but with a narrow viewing angle. This Gingerbread tablet did operate smoothly and the capacitive touch screen responded promptly. The 8-inch Live Tab played a 720p video without flickering and it offered a smooth playback of 1080p video via the HDMI interface. For a budget price of 200€ it seems to pack a lot of punch, but it does have a tremendous drawback, there is no access to Android Marketplace, there is only access to the apps of the AndroidPIT App Center. This means that users will only have a fraction of the Android apps available them.
Our good friends over at Tablet-blog.de were able to spend some hands on time with the devices at IFA 2011, so you can see it for your self below.
