Binatone ReadMe Colour review


Incredibly cheap for a colour eBook reader, but it feels it. Serious readers should spend more for something with an E Ink screen

This reader might be tempting to those on a tight budget, but its cheap feel and basic features mean it's best avoided unless you must have the cheapest possible colour reader. If you’re not worried about colour, there are far better eReaders out...

Binatone Kidzstar eReader review


This cheap and tough reader can take a few knocks, but its kid-friendliness is patchy and its features sparse

There are things to like about the Kidzstar eReader, but it’s not completely kid-friendly and it’s not as easy to use as it should be. Its colour screen makes sense for children's books, but comes at the cost of sharpness and battery life. As such the...

Binatone HomeSurf 705 Review by


You miss out on one of the main benefits of the Android OS –

It's cheap; can be used as an e-reader

Dreadful display, really slow chip; no access to Android market

Binatone HomeSurf 705


Binatone's best known for home phones, but can its £99 Android tablet take on the iPad?

Yes, it’s cheap, but that's literally the only positive. Outdated, tacky and painfully slow

My son has just passed his driving test and I brought this item as a "well done" present. He is thrilled with it and has already used it to navigate to the Lake District
