Hey guys. Moe here. Living it 'down' in the MENA region. I am a technophile; without the resources available to indulge in my hobby. So I hang out in forums like this to get my fix. But enough is enough. I finally decided to jump into the Android bandwagon by buying an Android tablet. Si I am 'researching' for one that is affordable while giving a decent first time Android experience for a noob like me. The worst thing about living in the Middle East is that we are generally the last ones to get all the cool stuff. And that too at inflated prices. And besides that data charges by our Telecom providers are beyond ridiculous! That's why so major players in the tech industries do not bother releasing their products here; because they know not many people have data plans and there is not much demand for their product. I want to say most of us here in the Middle East are pragmatic and practical people, but the truth is many of us are just too cheap! Right now, I got my eyes on the Huawei Ideos S7 and the Creative Ziio. I think I could be happy with either product. The biggest obstacle is their availability in the market and their price. I managed to source the Creative Ziio - it'll cost me a whooping $329 (in my local currency) for the 7" 8GB model. Can you believe it!!! I don't yet know where to find the Huawei Tablet; and I am reluctant to go to the "grey" market as they do not offer warranty, refund and in most cases exchange! So, here I am starting my great Tablet search; and hopefully it'll have an happy ending. Cheers!!!
