I have convinced DH we need a tablet. Actually he convinced himself because he thinks our DS's should have one 'for apps'. I disagree. I think I alone should have one... but anyway... ;)
I don't want to spend over £100 and have been looking at Amazon but am boggled. I have an android phone so was going to go for an android but tbh I'm still not that clued up because the only apps I use are weightwatchers and ebay.
something the kids can watch films and programs on when we are out and about in the car something I can browse the shops on and my email something the kids can play games on
I want something that has sound but works with headphones too.
I can't actually think of anything else since we have a pc at home anyway.
I dont really know how the internet connection thing works generally - can I do a mixture of wifi from home, then 3G using a SIM when we are not at home?
I want the best operating system I can get for the price - I just don't know what that is. I have decided on Android though.
I guess I want the most RAM I can get ( or at least a tablet that allows extra memory)
I think if you double your budget then you can get yourself a Google Nexus 7 or Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.
I seriously wouldn't recommend a tablet which only costs £100. The Kindle Fire is £130 and even that's seriously locked into the Amazon world. In other words it's so cheap because you are tied into buying movies, books & apps from them.
If you are thinking of 3G access as well then you will need to look at tripling your current budget.
My DH also recommends the Nexus 7 but said to wait two weeks as they are bringing out a 32 GB version for the same price (currently 8 GB). He has a Nexus 7 and it is very good, more powerful than an Ipad but you need a phone for the internet connection when out and about (apparently you have to set up your phone to a tethered wifi hotspot to get the tablet to work). If you need any more information pm me and I will get DH to reply as he is the geeky one not me .
