I am currently on the search for a CHEAP android tablet that will run either Voice4u or SonoFlex(both require official android market, or amazon market) And android version 1.6 or 2.2 or later.
This will be for an autistic child who throws wild tantrums. I currently have an Acer Iconia. I know that she would have such a light/thin tablet destroyed pronto. Were hoping that what ever I get her for her birthday lasts past the learning(dont break this) stage. If not, hopefully its cheap enough to be replaced. I would love under 100 dollars. I have searched and searched on amazon. I keep finding junk that doesn't have the amazon market.
I can root if necessary, although the child's mom I am giving it too cannot, so It would either need to be a one time thing, or a vary rare thing.
We would love if it had a backwards facing camera. As with many of these AAC apps you need pictures of the things you wish to have the app "say". If we could find one that didn't have one, I guess we could live, though it would be much more helpful. Would also be great, as her child could then take pictures of the item she wants to show to her mother (she has a speech limitation of about 10 words at age 4).
Otherwise, 7 inches would be about the best size for her little hands, don't want anything less than 5 inches as she currently has an ipod touch which is really too small.
If anyone has any good suggestions let me know.
My break neck price is about 150. Anything more than that and I wont be able to afford it for her birthday and me and her mom will have to save to get her something after that.
