Rarely do we take much interest in dirt-cheap Android tablets (with good reason) but the new Scroll Excel announced today tosses in an extra unexpected feature: for £129.99, it’ll play back full HD 3D video too. Has a plucky British gadget just killed the 3D Blu-ray player?

It’ll only sling it to supported 3D tellies via a mini HDMI cable, mind, but the Scroll Excel, from British gadget company Storage Options, could prove quite a cheap way to sling stereoscopic video to your TV at only £129.99.

For your money, you get a 7-inch, 800×480 capacitive touchscreen, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and Adobe Flash support – though no Android Market access. While 3D Blu-ray players are now available for the same place, most are unable to play back online 3D video from sites such as YouTube, so the Scroll Excel could make for an interesting new source of 3D content.

The Scroll Excel is available for pre-order now and will go on sale before the end of the year: the impressive list of supported video formats is below.

Full 1080p MPEG2, MPEG4, AVS, H.264, WMV, AVI, MP4, RMVB, FLV, MKV

  • A loud of rubbish

    All lie’s … it’s not a 3D player in any way shape or form it only doe’s what any other media player will do the 3D tv is where the magic happens not on the Scroll excel false advertisement!!  

    all it does is the same as Windows media player plays the 3D side by side stereoscopic then displays that on the 3D tv via the HDMI mini connection then on the tv you hit the 3D button on your remote and select side by side 3D…   it’s not even got a configured android firmware it’ stills says at the top no service and is ripped straight from a phone it’s internet is laggy at best and it does not come with 512 ram even the processor displays as A7 not the A8 as promised in the description.. no 3D blu-ray players are still worthy of a purchase this product is far from competitive

    my scroll crashes all the time while accessing the memory card but is great when its in a good mood. The signal bars become green when I plug my mobile internet dongle into it and even had it ring once via the sim card. Im going to put android ics on it and hope it stops crashing so much. Battery lasts 8 hours sometimes
