Storage Options launches the world’s most powerful 10” Android 4.0 tablet under £200

We are proud to announce our fastest ever tablet PC and the world’s most powerful tablet under £200 to use the Android 4.0 operating system and support the output of 3D content.

The new Scroll Extreme has been added to our popular and award-winning Scroll tablet portfolio. It is packed with a variety of innovative new features and is the cheapest high quality tablet of its type in the world, at only £189.99, initially exclusive with eBuyer.com and available to pre-order from today.Scroll Extreme Main

Operating on Android’s latest tablet operating system 4.0, commonly known as Ice Cream Sandwich, the Scroll Extreme delivers a smooth and intuitive user experience with a superior performance powered by its 1.2GHz Cortex A8 processor.

PrintPaul Evison, Head of Brand for Storage Options commented: “The last few months have been truly staggering for us at Storage Options. We have been blown away by the support we have received for the Scroll Excel and we were obviously delighted when it was picked as The Gadget Show’s favourite budget tablet back in November. We have always known that our customers wanted quick, slick and responsive devices that are packed with features, without the burden of a premium price tag and the Scroll Extreme really does deliver exactly that. This is the first tablet we have produced on the Android 4.0 operating system and the whole user experience is vastly improved and far more intuitive than previous versions of Android.”

The new slim-line and lightweight aluminium unit boasts 1.2GHz Cortex A8 processor with Mali-400 dual core graphics processing and 1GB DDR3 RAM with 8GB Memory built-in and the ability to expand through a micro SD Card up to 32GB, making it easily the most powerful and fast Scroll ever created.

Paul adds: “Our development team are really proud of this device and I think our customers are going to be blown away at the standard we have achieved for such a low price. The user experience is really impressive on its 9.7 inch screen and the fact it supports Flash helps it to provide a much richer viewing experience all round.” Scroll Extreme 1

The Android 4.0 operating system makes popular actions more visible and lets the user navigate with simple, intuitive gestures. An entirely new typeface optimised for high-resolution screens has improved readability and brings a more polished feel to the Extreme’s interface. New virtual buttons in the system bar enable the user to navigate more easily. Multitasking has also been made easier and more visual.

With a 16-bit G-sensor, enabling the ten inch screen to rotate 360 degrees, teamed with Flash support and a responsive, capacitive touch screen, the Scroll Extreme is perfect for internet browsing, social networking, reading E-Books, online TV and video services.

The Scroll Extreme also has the ability, like its smaller cousin the Scroll Excel, to output 3D content directly to a 3D TV, or monitor, by downloading 3D content to the tablet and played back on a big screen through a mini HDMI cable. It will also output 1080p HD video content in the same manner.

The Scroll Extreme will be on sale from April, exclusively available for pre-order now with eBuyer.com.

As with all of our products, these devices are supplied with clearly-written and annotated manuals and are backed by a local-rate technical support phone line serviced by experts based in the UK.

Scroll Excel and Scroll Essential Sell Out – Visit Your Retailer to Get One

scrollexcel3We are both pleased and sorry to announce that all of our latest Scroll Excels and Scroll Essentials have now sold out. We blogged a couple of days ago to say that direct sales from us were shifting at record rates but now they have totally sold out. If you have already ordered one from us, please don’t worry these will be delivered to you as agreed.

Both units are still widely available (at the time of writing) with our retail partners, although we expect demand to outstrip supply again. If you want to know where to look check out this page.

At Storage Options we have been inundated with enquiries about the Scroll Excel and in turn the comments and feedback from you guys has been very positive and we are hugely grateful. This positivity has led to us selling everything we have at our head quarters. However, we will be getting a new batch in around 16th February 2012. So we are now taking pre-orders for that batch, if you missed out this time.

We apologise if this has caused any inconvenience and if you have any further questions about the technical specification of the product please feel free to contact us on 0844 248 7191.

Storage Options launches UK’s first 3D content tablet under £200

The new Scroll Excel to appear on The Gadget Show

Storage Options, the UK-based technology brand, has launched its fastest ever tablet PC and the country’s first tablet under £200 to handle 3D content.Storage Options Scrollexcel 3

The new Scroll Excel 7” has been added to the extensive Scroll tablet range. It is packed with lots of innovative new features and priced extremely competitively, at just £129.99, making it easily the most cost effective tablet to handle 3D content on the market.

Operating on Android 2.3, the Scroll Excel has the ability to output 3D content directly to a 3D TV, or monitor, by downloading 3D content to the tablet and played back on a big screen through a mini HDMI cable. It will also output 1080p HD video content in the same manner.

The new unit boasts a Cortex A8 1 Ghz processor and 512 MB RAM with 4GB Memory built-in and the ability to expand through a micro SD Card up to 32GB, making it easily the most responsive Scroll ever produced.

With a 16-bit G-sensor, enabling the seven inch screen to rotate 360 degrees, teamed with Flash support and a capacitive touch screen, the Scroll Excel is ideal for internet browsing, social networking, E-Books, online TV and video services.

Paul Evison, marketing manager for Storage Options commented: “We are really proud of the Scroll Excel as this is easily our fastest and most responsive tablet to date. We have been listening to our customers and adding the features that they said they wanted. The user experience when internet browsing, or gaming, is really impressive and has only been seen before on far more expensive products. We also believe that this is the first tablet to market with the ability to output 3D video to a 3D TV. This additional feature should appeal to those who already have a 3D TV but aren’t sure where to get their content from. In a way the Scroll Excel bridges the gap between 3D content that’s available on the internet and actually getting it onto a 3D screen.”

Paul added: “This is now easily the fastest tablet in our range and we think people will be really excited at the opportunity to have a highly responsive 3D tablet at a price that doesn’t break the bank.”

Storage Options is launching the product in time for Christmas and the new unit has already proved extremely popular with gadget enthusiasts and will be featuring on Channel 5’s the Gadget Show on 21st November 2011.

Due to the anticipated high demand for this new product Storage Options is allowing customers to make pre-orders for the units through its website.

Storage Options has also launched the Scroll Essential 7” Tablet, for those happy with a resistive screen and a lower price of £69.99. Compatible with the latest H.246 and MKV video formats, the tablet becomes a 1080p full HD media player allowing HD content to be streamed to a TV. The Scroll Essential comes with 2GB standard memory which can be easily expanded to 32GB with a micro SD card. This unit also operates on Android 2.3 but it has an ARM11 1GHz processor with 256MB DDR2 RAM.

Both of these new tablets will come preloaded with WildTangent’s new Android Games Service which allows users to try premium games for free after watching a short video. Users will also be able to rent games for a small cost or buy any of the games they want to keep. Rental prices begin at just 15p for a 24-hour period and all rentals apply toward full game ownership.

As with all Storage Options products, these devices are supplied with clearly-written and annotated manuals and are backed by a local-rate technical support phone line serviced by experts based in the UK.
