    I have 3 Coby Kyros for our kids.... they "work" for the kids, but are pretty buggy and sluggish. I have rooted, updated, and applied every tweak possible at this point. They have full market, etc. But they are slow and buggy still. For my personal use, they are a mere shadow of how my Droid X operates. Only 2.1 operating system, which for me doesn't cut the mustard. Picked them up for 149 each, so they have actually been a good buy relative to other gifts we have bought our kids. They love them. Of course I spent DAYS getting them set up right in the end. I love challenges, but in the end the hours I spent getting these units to run very well at all I could have earned the extra $ and bought a higher end unit (Archos 70) that works better. But that's water under the bridge and my own personal little story on low end tabs.

    My suggestion is to up your price limit. At this time, from everything I've used personally (in stores like Best Buy, etc), I think the BEST BUY on an android tab is the Samsung. I have side by side compared this to the iPad, and really they perform almost the same speed wise. I like a bigger screen (why I have a droid X in the first place), but I think for overall tab use, 7" is really nice. Great for a kindle reader whereas 10" gets kinda large for that kind of stuff. I was pretty impressed with how it seemed to move through apps and screens. Since I loathe apple, I would never consider the iPad. Personally, I would wait things out a bit, be prepared to spend up to $500 for a honeycomb tegra 2 tab. Personally, the screen quality means a LOT to me, so that kinda crosses the Viewsonic off my list. When I buy a tab, it will have a great capacitive screen, tegra 2, honeycomb, dual cameras, etc. That means top of the line and more $ but after my experience with the lower end Coby's I'd rather pay a bit more for a unit that doesn't feel like a bastardized knockoff. Just my 2 cents. Or maybe 2000 cents with the long paragraphs lol.

    At $300, you might as well refer to my shopping guide... But your options have already been mentioned.
    I'm afraid to pry the tablet open because there are no screws. I agree, it seems fragile there.

    Droid Phone (original) and Elocity A7
    I have the Elocity A7...bought for $299.00 at Shop NBC about 3 weeks ago. They have flex pay - spread out over 6 months. I figured if I didn't like it, I would send back. Specs are good - comparable to Samsung Galaxy. Never heard of the Elocity manufacturer. So far - so good. Note that this tablet doesn't come with the Google apps, but you can update it so that it does. (Several thread posts tell you how). For a 1 ghz tablet with 4 gb internal that is upgradeable to 32 gb internal extra storage via micros sd, you can't beat it for $299.00. Several others are selling for the same price, Amazon, etc. Good luck in your search.

    The only thing I have to say is: do not buy EKEN. You will be throwing your money away. I was stupid enough to buy five pieces at once. Two simply don't work, two crashes all the time and one, well, one works reasonably. Their support is as good as the device (that is, a piece of trash) as they NEVER answer e-mails. They ship low quality products simply because China is not at the corner and you are not going to spend fortunes shipping the goods (or should I say "bads"?) back.

    Some cheap products are, actually, too expensive.

    I went ahead and ordered the Wits A81G. For the specs and the price was right in my price range. It was $212USD shipped. Worth taking a look at.

    I am anxiously waiting for the Asus Eee Pad EP121 12-inch. Actually, my usage of a tablet is simple. I am not interested in navigating the web. A desktop is much more adequate (I don't use notebooks, you see). As a matter of fact, a tablet sounds to me as an ebook reader with bigger screen and able to reproduce colors.

    I use it to:
    1. Comic books/graphic novels/mangas
    2. Images in general
    3. Text books

    Thus, a 12-inch screen will be my dreams come true. I am afraid of the cost, but I will certainly buy the Android version.


    [I had forgotten to mention before, but all Chinese android tablets available in Ali Baba/Ali Express site are Ekenmade, although they bring no brand.]
