    ok, bought an ainol advanced last spring and things were going well, but the more i used it the more i wished i had a 10 (came from a gtab)


    ainol died today and im pretty bummed


    gotta stay in the reasonable range of 200 - 250


    LOVE everything in the ainol other than the reported quality issues (this is actually the 1st and apparently last issue Ive had w/ it)


    Like some of the mainstreamers Nexus Nook etc OTHER than the fact that some of those guys seem to have lost their MINDS pricewise and forgot about mempry expansion by not including the sd card slot.


    want dual core at a minimum, 8gb minimum (16 better) AND a sd card slot


    Ive had 5 point touch so i dont want to downgrade,


    but ive been pretty happy w/ my ainol that I havent kept up.


    Theonly thing i see imideately is the cube U30gt (?) I may have the model wrong


    actually the nook hd+ is very attractive just at the top end of my $


    please lets hear youre real life observations


    thanks

    I have my eye on this.
    Ramos W42 Quad-core 9.4 inch IPS 1280*800 Android 4.0 16GB Bluetooth HDMI Dual Camera

    I have always thought 9.7" was the best size, but this is the same width, and not quite as tall. It should make it easier to hold ...not quite the handful of a 10.1".

    I know that is a tad more, so if you must stay closer to 200 ...take a look at this.
    http://www.merimobiles.com/pipo-m8-...-camera-hdmi-bluetooth-5mp-cam_p/meri7230.htm

    I actually like the Pipo more, but have an idea the Ramos will be the better quality.

    I wish you well.
