Which Android Tablet?

This discussion thread has 27 messages.

I was thinking of buying at least one or two Tablets for Christmas.

There's too much to choose from, I need help so I thought I'd ask here.

I only want to pay about 120 tops.

This one looked good....

Any feedback appreciated :)

If you can stretch a bit further, then your best bet is probably a Nexus 7 from ASUS/Google. Ie, consider it is only 30-40 more, the tablet you linked is quite inferior.

Otherwise, this isn't terrible for the money (having looked somewhat briefly solely on eBuyer)

if you are buying a tablet for browsing than HCL U1 is best for you.. as it is very very cheap... so that you can buy 3-4 tablets at your budget... it runs on andoir 4.0 ICS, so it is quite good in my opinion... btw i'm also using HCL U1...

Again the Nexus 7 I would recommend and they have recently come down in price in the uk/Ireland 16gb version in Ireland is 209, or if you are looking for something cheaper this was recommended to me the Ainol Novo Aurora2, it has a 1.5GHz A9 chip (80) I have one and it really is fast and is as good as the Nexus in my opinion, but having said that I know fook all about this kind of stuff :)

Cheers lads.

Dave could you post a link to where I could get one of those Auroras mate. Liverpool area.
Tried google like but its sending me to Indian websites that Ive never used. Cheers ;)

what ever you get make sure its at lest 32GB memory. Its really silly these tablets dont have much memory in it. I have a Samsung 7.7 work Great! Got 32gb and micro sd 64GB. 7.7 inch screen perfect size. Not too big Not too small!.

Ridiculous comment given that you don't know the intended purpose and the required price point.

Seems they're not available :(

I would get a reputable brand - Asus or Samsung. And memory is important but its cheaper to buy a memory card than it is to buy built in memory so go that route. Ensure your tablet has a memory card slot.

On the first post, the link that points at this argos page: www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5073537.htm

Clearly states: "Sorry, we are unable to find the catalogue number(s) highlighted in your list. This may be because a number is incorrect or the item is no longer available."

I spoke too soon!!! Now the lad wants an ipad.

Told him he cant have one but we might get him an Android, so back to the O.P. :)

I need a decent 10" Android for around 100 - 140.

Any advice would be really appreciated. :)
