All the cheap tablets I have had now have screen issues. Its not glass on the vigo and the unbranded 7" I have, its plastic. And its gone cloudy in places and has rough patches that are sticky because it was stored beside some different plastic that has now caused stuff to migrate into it.

The cheap 10" doesnt seem to have had the same thing happen, but it is all scratched up from fingers on it. Seems softer than a cheap nasty $2shop screen protector.

on further investigation.....
It seems some of the Thompson's dont have Google play store. This can be a bit of an issue & I wouldnt bother if true
If so, its a phablet (ie : bogus Android install), not a tablet
Im not 100% sure the quoted specs are correct either .

Still, only $99 (ends today). Cant get much for a hundy nowdays

And here I thought it was a phone with a large enough screen that it's approaching tablet size...
