I'm buying a 7" tablet for my 11 year old son for Christmas. (Then theoretically when he's tired of it it will be something I can play with as well) I wish not to spend an incredible amount of money ... but I also want it to last more than 6 months. It will be primarily used for the downloadable Droid games. Possibly a Paint app. I would also be interested in a photo editor (limited to fixed ratio cropping). I bought the Archos 7 last night. I loaded a few programs from the Appslib (not a terrible program in and of itself) ... and quickly ran out of memory! I didn't realize that the device will not use all of it's internal 8G and is limited to 58M of application memory (or something like that). I've read through forums that this is a 1.5 issue and, theoretically, can be hacked. True? I bought it for $180 and am thinking about taking it back and getting the Cruz Tablet (not reader) for $250 on sale. This is all at Best Buy. (I'll attempt to not get hit with the 15% restocking fee) Main question ... is the app memory so severely limited with the Cruz or am I going to have the same problem? My husband is "happy" with what we have because "it's good enough for our son" ... but I want it to grow with him (at least a little bit) and be fun for a while, not just the month of January! Our local Toys-R-Us is also selling the Coby Kyros for $200 (not on sale) ... this also has 2.something OS. Screens ... resistive and capacitive are both fine. The kids are used to playing on my resistive touch screen HTC Imagio phone and don't seem to have any problems with it. Sorry for the book! I did spend quite a bit of time browsing/searching the forums, but a lot of the posts were pre-Cruz release!
