    Hi all, I was hoping to get a piece of advice as to which tablet would be best to buy. I am going on a multiple day care trip with my 7,6, and 4 year old. I am looking to replace the dvd players we have with a tablet that I can load with videos and simple games like angry birds, doodle jump, etc.

    I am looking for something cheap since I need to buy 3, and decent battery life is important since we will only be able to charge them at night.

    I was looking at the coby kyros mid7015 and the mid7024. Also have considered the nook color.

    Any advice I much appreciated. Thanks!

    I have the Huawei S7 and it is really a very sturdy device. I've tried to press on the touchscreen as hard as I can and I haven't managed to make the LCD screen do that thing where it changes colour where you are pressing. You can get MicroSD cards up to 16 GB for it, that's a fair amount of movies. Battery life isn't great, I usually get 4 hours out of mine. I think in the U.S. i costs $249 at Best Buy, I know in Australia it's $199. If you can do with the battery life as it is then I'm sure it would be a great tablet for your needs.

    This seems like a pretty sweet deal, im not sure how good it is, but its a version of the intel learning series line of laptops for kids. it has a color keyboard, touch screen and is water resistant. Has anyone ever purchased one of these?
