The budget tablet segment keeps growing, and generally they are also improving in quality. In the beginning these products had pretty terrible displays, but nowadays you can find decent screens on these affordable tablets. A fairly recent addition to the entry-level segment is the brand dServe, that is using three new tablets to enter the budget tablet market. Hardware.Info tested all three, the DSRV 7015C, de DSRV 9703C and the DSRV 1005C. All three are available at Selfridges department stores.
You probably guessed already by their names, that these three tablets have three different sizes, specifically 7 inches, 9.7 inches and 10.1 inches. The three models also have different resolutions and aspect ratios.
The 7-inch 7015C has 800x480 pixels (5:3 or 15:9), the 9703C is 1024x768 (4:3) and the 1005C is 1024x600 (16:9). Something for everyone, in other words. Prices are around £119 (7015C), £196 (9703C) and £188 (1005C). They weigh 360 grams, 534 grams and 718 grams, respectively.
When we first laid our eyes on the three dServe tablets (made available by 4U-Tech) we immediately were reminded of two Point of View devices, the recently-reviewed ProTab 2 9.7 inches, and the ProTab 2 XXL. The similarities between the two brands go further than just looks, which we'll elaborate on a bit later.
