    Hi all,

    I recently went to Verizon, ATT and Sprint to look at tablets for my young son. He likes Android, is always using my phone. When we are out and about he is constantly asking for our phones so he can download some game or other. He has an iTouch but with Wifi rarely available he always comes back to our phones.
    I was depressed at what the major carriers had to offer for connected tablets. I don't mind the monthly data plan but asking $600 for a Xoom plus 2 year commitment is a bit much.
    So could you all recommend a tablet with data connectivity (either GSM or CDMA) that has a capacitive screen. Prefer $250 or under. Less is better.

    Thanks

    not in the price range you are looking at. You can do a 7" refurb at Verizon for that price range, but that is about it

    The Samsung galaxy tab at Sprint is selling for 199 with a two year data contract.

    Are there not any Chinese tablets that have 3G?

    There are, but I don't know much about those. Plus I'm sure you'll have to load the android market yourself. Could check on the malata z-pad, I may be wrong but I believe the zpad is like the gtab but has 3g.
