Vodafone today announced the Tab speed 6, a 4G-enabled 8-inch tablet that will retail on prepay for just £125, or from £16 per month on contract (with 3GB of data included).

Vodafone Tab speed 6: Looks like any other tablet, but packing a 4G SIM slot and retailing from just £125 on Pay as you Go

The specs provided by Vodafone are pretty sparse (see below), and the selection of images even more limited (see right), although if you’ve seen one black tablet then you’ve probably seen them all.

Clearly the selling point here is the price, and its ability to continue enjoying Spotify, Netflix or YouTube, or games that require a constant connection, even when you leave a Wi-Fi connection.

The specs as provided by Vodafone show this certainly isn’t high-spec, but if it’s half as good as Vodafone’s Smart Ultra 6 smartphone then it could be a great buy for anyone wanting seamless connectivity without messing around with portable hotspots or tethering.

Dimensions (mm) 209×124.9×8.3
Weight (g) 330g
Processor 1.3GHz quad-core
Display 8-inch multi-touch
RAM 1GB
Camera 5MP rear-facing /
2MP front-facing
Operating system Android 5.1
Colour Anthracite Metallic
Battery 4060mAh
Storage 16GB internal + microSDHC (64GB max)

The Tab speed 6 joins the £99 EE Robin tablet, which is aimed at children, and the EE Harrier – although the latter is not available on prepay.

There’s not much else to say until I get one to look at myself, but until then tech blogger Purav D has been using a Tab speed 6 since before Christmas and has already published his video review – so check it out below.
