Supermarket one of the first out of the blocks with Windows 10 tablets

We have seen a flood of cheap Windows 8.1 tablets emerge over the past year or so, and now Tesco has released one of the first compact tablets to come pre-installed with Windows 10. In fact, the Tesco Windows Connect can be bought for as little as £49.50 if you've got Clubcard vouchers to spare.

The Connect has a fairly standard specification for a budget compact tablet. It runs on a quad-core 1GHz Intel Atom Z3735G processor, paired with only 1GB of RAM - which is certainly going to make anything but the most basic of games a struggle. It has 32GB of built-in storage, however, which is a step up from the meagre 16GB afforded to some compacts, and there's a microSD slot that can accommodate up to 32GB more.

The 8in IPS display has a resolution of 1,280 x 800, which should be plenty sharp enough for a compact. It's unlikely the same could be said for the two cameras: a 2-megapixel snapper on the rear and a 0.3-megapixel model on the front. 

There's 802.11bgn Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4, although a quoted battery life of "up to four hours" doesn't inspire much confidence, but is once again fairly standard for a tablet of this price running Windows.  

Microsoft has revamped the Windows 10 interface for compact tablets, making the live tiles bigger and introducing a system-wide back button. Microsoft has also reduced the operating system's footprint, handing more storage space to apps and files. 

The Windows Connect costs £99 from the Tesco website, or as little as half that price with Clubcard vouchers.
