    Hi, ok first I know this sounds weird but this tablet is "mainly" for my daughter which is 16 months old. She loves our new phone and I figured this could be a good learning tool. On top of that, I will have use for it (we have IP Cameras and trying myself at app's).

    I am looking for something cheap enough because it will be at the mercy of a 16months old and she tosses our phone like dirty potatoes :D (so hoping under $100)

    I'd like it to have:

    * Android 2.1+ (would prefer 2.2)
    * Wifi (needed)
    * Capacitive touch screen (would prefer because she loves drawing with her fingers but open to resistive)
    * Cpu/ram enough to run apps/games, play movies (doesn't have to be HD) as we'll also use it for car movie watching, we take trips to the hospital 2 hours away.
    * 7"+ screen (7 is easier for her to handle, 10" is better to watch movies/ip cams).
    * dual-touch+ screen
    * HDD doesn't have to be huge, as long as it can take a SDCard.

    Awesome if it's there but not a deal breaker:
    * HDMI out
    * Good camera, front or dual (she loves to take pictures/videos).


    I know this is a big list but hoping someone know something out there... It's 7am... been looking up different models all night but I am hoping someone with more knowledge will have an idea.

    Thank you in advance.

    One of them say "Touch Screen Type: Capacitive Screen" but later in the descriptions I found "Touch Screen: resistance touch screen" so not sure on that.

    Any advice is more than welcome, also if you know of other devices in similar prices. Thank you.

    Steve, this is actually an awesome find! I don't see info about it being Capa or Resist touch screen but does almost everything else I am looking for... also my wife working at walmart makes it below $100 with her associate card :)
    Also, that gives me a piece of mind that I can return it VERY easily if I have any problems with it... I will definitely keep this one in mind.. I had looked on their website but didn't see that one.

    Great! Glad I can help. My guess at that price point it's probably resist but you never know. I am very interested maybe I'll pick one up for my wife let me know what you think of it if you do decide on it.
