For my fourteenth giveaway in my Christmas Giveaway Bonanza I have a truly fabulous prize. A GoClever Orion 7.85 inch HD-IPS 8GB Quad Core Tablet with 2MP Camera, 2 year warranty and HDMI cable included from Ideal World TV.
I was recently lucky enough to have a studio tour around Ideal World TV. In case you haven't come across them before, they are a TV shopping channel. Go on flick through your channels you'll find them (Sky 654, Freeview 22, Virgin 747, Freesat 812).

The next day we arrived at the studios bright and early and were met by PR Executive Laura Murden, Executive Producer Dan Thomas and Presenter Joanne Vandermerwe-Mahon. They told us a bit about the company and then took us on a tour around the studio and behind the scenes. After lunch Sarah, Helen and Emily all had a go at presenting. I skipped on this as I had a bad chest infection and couldn't stop coughing. It must have driven everyone insane! They all did a really good job. I fear I would have been no where near as good as they had I given it a bash.
My impression of Ideal World TV?
Although it's a big operation, it has a very friendly and relaxed family feel to it. Products go through many processes before they get on air and staff take them home to give them a thorough testing before any product goes live on air.
The programmes themselves are not sell, sell, sell, with prices changing, with high pressured techniques. It's more like a daytime chat show. The main aim of the show is to make sure the customer can really see how the product works from unpacking it, to what buttons to press and what you can do with it. This is always going to be better than buying a product blind from another shop. If you miss a show you can go on their website and watch a clip of the product being used.
They also have good buying terms to make it easier for the viewer to pay for bigger items and you can actually tweet them while they are live to ask them a question or to ask them to demonstrate something with the product. Truly interactive. I was really impressed.
When the GoClever tablet arrived we were very impressed. It came fully charged and before I had a chance to have a proper look at it and set it up, Cooper got hold of it and was off and running. Cooper is four years old (nearly five), so it really is easy to use. He was very impressed that Angry Birds was already loaded on the tablet for him to use. There were icons on the desktop for all the usual applications and more to choose from in the library.
This GoClever tablet screen isn't as sharp as an iPad, but it makes up for it by being super light and easy to use. Great to carry around in your bag and a good one for kids as it isn't too expensive, although I would still recommend buying a cover for it. Basically you are getting a budget tablet, that is pretty speedy and light to carry, but not as high resolution as an iPad. Perfect for browsing the web or checking your emails. It's RRP is £99.99 but is on offer at Ideal World TV for £79.99.
