    I'm new to the tablet scene and need some shopping advice. Here is what I'm looking for:

    I'd like to be at or under $300 USD shipped.

    9"-10" tab
    Android 4.0
    Fast processor/RAM (hate to wait or have screen lag)
    Capacitive screen
    Front/Rear cameras
    WiFi
    Access to app downloads

    And:
    G-sensor would be nice
    GPS would be nice
    Netflix would be nice

    I plan to email, surf, youtube, download/use some apps, skype.

    What are some good options for me?

    Thanks!!

    Also, I'd consider an 8" tab if it had most or all the requirements.

    Any suggestions would be great, it's dizzying looking thru these websites!

    You realize you are kind of asking for a lot with a small budget right? Particularly with Android 4.0. You may be able to find some devices that meet the specs but have not been (and may not be) updated to ICS. You can wait a little longer until more devices are either updated to ICS or ship with ICS. You are still going to do some careful shopping to get all of the hardware you want for under $300.

    Hi here are a few chinese tabs worth a look
    Onda vi40
    Ployer momo ll
    Ampe a90
    Yuandao (or window) n90
    Bmorn v99
    Senai n90
    Teclast a10 or a15

    I myself have just got the senai and I'm pretty impressed. All the above have ips or capacitive screens, good cpu & memory, camera's, decent battery life etc. Just make sure you use a reputable seller. There's a list of supporting vendors on this forum. I suggest checking their web sites & prices to see which takes your fancy. I got mine from mcbub but spemall or red tablets come recommended too..good luck whatever your choice.

    Hi BristoIF6, welcome to the forum.
    for 9-10 inch tablet with ICS, you can have a look at the reputable Zenithink ZT-280 C91.
    And Teclast A10t 9.7 inch with IPS capacitive screen & Teclast A15 9.0 inch with 1280*800 Pixels high resolution Screen will also be good choices.

    I think you can get that Lenovo for under 300, with Tegra 2, at the moment it's on Honeycomb though I think. But Spec wise it does well.
