Elonex, a British tablet maker, has just unveiled six new eTouch-branded, Android-powered tablets with an aim to claim the lowest price. The devices range from the seven-inch, £119 (about $195) eTouch 760ET and top out with the £279 ($456), 10-inch, 3G-ready eTouch Blade 1043ET. All six run on the admittedly aging Android 2.2 version of Google's OS.
