Christmas Countdown....Gift Guide!: Competition & Review: Nurvo 8" Quad Core Android Tablet

I know, I know its only September.....but to me that means Christmas is actually within sight!
I like to be prepared when it comes to Christmas and start thinking about my gifts early on....and so with that in mind, I'm introducing a weekly Christmas Countdown Gift Guide feature!
Each and every Wednesday (I realise this is a Sunday but in future this feature will run on a Wednesday!) I will be reviewing and reporting back with some of the top Christmas Gift options on the market this year....I will try to feature gifts to cover every relative we could possibly need to buy for....
So for the very first instalment in the Christmas Countdown feature...I am reviewing the Nurvo 8" Quad Core Android Tablet....
Who's It For?: Dads & Partners would be my first thought!
Price Range: RRP is £179.99 - currently available for as low as £110.38
The Review
We were very kindly sent a device to try out for the purpose of this review, and I have to admit I did find it a little confusing at first - but then I am not the most tech-savvy of people and I have actually never used a tablet device before!
(I own a Samsung one but as we have been waiting almost 2 months for Sky to activate our broadband connection, and are currently working off a dongle - it's not been possible to try it out yet!)
Once I'd had a little read through the information and played around with it for a while, I found it much easier to navigate.
The tablet feels sturdy and durable, unlike some rather flimsy and delicate looking things I've encountered in the past which I've been too afraid to touch!
The screen is a perfect size for a tablet - not too big, not too small. And as it's a touchscreen device the screen takes up the entire front of the device.
The camera function features both a standard camera and a video camera, and the 2.0 mega pixel  quality seemed quite impressive to me. It has a forward-facing feature to enable the good old Selfie's which is always a plus!
As the tablet is a budget alternative to the more high-end brands, it is really ideal for parents of young children as - inevitably - there will be sticky fingers trying to grab for it and even the possibility of damage being caused when you turn your back for a few seconds!
And who wants to risk a £500+ product coming to that sort of harm?! With this product being under the £200 mark, it really does seem a far more sensible option with little ones around - and you're paying less without comprising on performance quality! Ideal!
The features include:
*1 GB DDR3 Memory
*USB & HDMI connectivity
*Wifi ready
*4 Hours battery life
*Built in G-sensor for gaming and automatic screen rotation
*Operating System: Google Android 4.1.3 (Jelly Bean)
The Nurvo has an RRP of £179.99 but is currently on sale for £110.38 on Amazon.
