    Cheap Tablet for my Kids

    hey all, after searching the vast internet I've come to you guys for help. I'm hoping your knowledge and experience can either help me or direct me to the info i seek.


    I'm looking into getting a tablet, well 2 actually, for my kids. I'm eyeing some from Velocity, PanDigital, and Colby in the <$150 range. Really, I'm just looking for an alternative to the portable DVD players for my kids. I've had 3 of these units before and I hate them. They are big, bulky, noisy, and all those wires...uhhhhhgggg.


    Researching these tablets has been pretty crazy. Lots of caveats with them, but it seems that I dont care too much about some of their faults or limits. I dont care much about wifi(whether it goes in and out), internet/email browsing speed, flash, which ebooks they can read; All i really care about is, can it play movies reliably and have ok battery life(4-5 hrs)?


    Idk if the resistive vs capacitive screen or ARM CPU are necessities for what my purposes are. If it can play only mp4s, thats fine. I will be ripping DVD's and encoding them to whichever format I need. I will get a 32gb sd card so it can store more movies, but it seems all the tablets have this an SD card slot.


    Obviously I'm looking at these cheap tablets because they'd be for my kids, and I'd probably spend the same amount on a decent DVD player. Being able to DL apps would be a bonus, but again its lower on the totem pole. If there is a way to DL apps to the sd card and install them to the tablet great. It might be nice to let them doodle in paint or play a game instead of watch a movie. Again, my main focus is to put movies/tv shows onto the sd card and have them watch movies on them.

    Can you guys offer any help, maybe based on personal experience with any of these tablets? Thx in advance.

    Junior Tablets

    The company I work for just started carrying tablets. We're getting them from the manufacurer in China and branding them, but we're having issues with some features of the Android Market. The website is kidcomputers.com. On the link for the Android Tablet, it shows as out of stock, because we're still trying to figure out how to get the Market working, but there's plenty of pre-installed apps. If you would like one as-is, I can probably get you a deal.

    Also, I recommend resistive for younger kids. It's a little harder to press the buttons, but it works better with stylus, in art and writing programs, and the kids can use it if their hands are sicky are wet, which they can't with capacitive. Our tablet runs wifi great (better than my phone), and so far, in testing, has suited our needs fairly well, except for the market problem. We also include an app to keep kids out of the filesystem and safe on the internet. Our tablets are designed to just let the kids play without having to worry about if they're going to mess up the device, though you can turn the program off with a password, and it becomes a regular tablet.

    Currently, the best tablet would be Xoom, IMO. Well, for kids, a regular tablet would be OK. Play some games like Angry Birds and do some drawing stuffs to have fun would be good enough for kids.

    Here's the same tablet as the Chinese one above. But you can get it from Amazon and shipped free. Amazon.com: 7" A10 CPU Cortex A8 1GHz Android 2.3 Ultrathin 5-point Multi-touch Capacitive Tablet PC WiFi: Computers & Accessories

    It's a great tablet for kids (and adults too). You can't beat the price.

    Hey! I know your feeling. Try AINOL NOVO. It can play 720p and 1080p videos, enough for making the kids quiet.
