    Hi all I'm new to the forum.

    Work have asked me to research Android tablets and given the budget, approx £100/$150, I'm looking at the low end of the market. Only requirements are at least a 7" screen and Android 3.0 or newer. There is so much out there and most are brands I have never heard of.

    Can anyone recommend something that stands out from the crowd? Is there a comparison somewhere?

    hi, here's a link to a good tab from a trustworthy supplier at a very affordable price. some would say the ainol tornado is better but i believe that the tornado has mips based firmware which many apps may not be compatible with so i recommend this one. onda are a well known chinese tablet maker & this seller is also a supporting vendor on this site so you will get good aftersales service as well. you may find cheaper suppliers but it can be hit & miss on how reliable they are. i would much rather have peace of mind when buying something from china & this company has never let me down. they are friendly helpful & hones plus they only sell genuine branded tablets, not oem copies that can be less reliable. well worth a look. you have nothing to lose. if this tab is not for you, you might find something on their site that fits your bill. good luck.

    Hi blued,
    Welcome to the forum.
    Based on your requirements, i think you should have a look at the Ainol novo 7 Aurora and the Ainol novo 7 Elf II. They're the top two best 7 inch tablets within $150. you can do some research, hope you'll soon get your beloved tablet! Good luck! :)

    This is the best deal I have found, I've had it for 2 weeks & I'm very happy with it. You won't find a better seller either. Look at the reviews on the site at Amazon. Note: 16 GB + add another 16GB & 1GB memory. robinpe

    Hi!
    I think that ainol novo 7 elf 2 is one of the best tablets for its price now.
    Of course you can buy a cheaper tablet that'd still be decent - ainol paladin/mars/tornado.
    The great thing about elf2 is that it has a double core cpu and gpu - which is the newest tech for chinese tabs - only rk3066 could be considered better because it has a quad gpu - but the tabs with it are 200$+.
    Also it has a really decent ram - 1gb and what's more it's DDR3.
    Here are some things you might find useful:

    Ainol Novo 7 Elf II Review: The Best 7 Inch Dual Core Android Tablet, for now! - YouTube

    Also I think that the elf2 currently outmatches the iPad1 and is close in performance to the iPad2 -check the chipset link for more info.
    Btw, you should note that maybe in 1 year the tablets for this price would most likely be quad core - so think if you need it now or if you should wait.

    Ployer MOMO11 Bird
    My mum has got hooked on the idea of having a tablet and just ordered MOMO8 Bird. For UK (European?) customers there is a supplier based in Glasgow who is the official Ployer distributor. He has quickly responded to my email enquiries and confirmed that they are supplied with the latest Ployer customised English only (no Chinese apps etc) firmware and UK 3-pin power supply included. My mum hasn't told me whether she's got it yet or how it's going but all the reviews are 5/5 stars, so looks like a great choice. Priced at £110 including delivery for an 8" 1028x768, Android 4.0 ICS tablet has got to be worth considering. I have bought the MOMO11 Bird that was £150 and I am really impressed with this, which is what has lead my mum to select a Ployer tablet. Ployer seem to produce well spec'd tablets with good build quality and a sleek design. They also seem to provide good support with regular firmware updates.

    There doesn't seem to be a lot of info on the MOMO8 Bird, so I hope to write a review of it once I've visited my mum and had a chance to try it for myself.

    Details can be found via Ployer's website HERE

    Check out the recently announced FreeLander Leader/leadership edition (not sure its official translation): http://www.link-create.com.cn/news_detail.aspx?cid=1&id=675. It seems that, except for IR, it's a second coming of Samsung Galaxy 7.0 plus WiFi only. But it's priced under $150 in China.

    Students as well as professionals around the world have more options to choose as far as low-cost tablets go with a global education company launching an android tablet costing $100.
    I think it is best budget Android tablet.
    Thanks.
