    I'd really appreciate some help.

    I need an Android tablet to serve several functions. I'll list a summary first. And expand on that below (in case people are interested in my reasons):

    a. GPS (Sygic)
    b. G-Sensor
    c. Large external memory card capacity (for music)
    d. 2x simultaneous bluetooth connections (a recent version please)
    e. Wi-Fi (for internet)
    f. Running (or able to be updated/rooted to) Marshmallow
    g. 3G/4G/LTE phone frequency bands (read #6 below)
    h. Features more important than price, but cheap is good ;-)
    i. 9-inch (prefered), possibly 10-inch (for movies)
    j. Has root/CM support
    k. Black in color (if possible)
    l. Wireless charging (least important, but is this possible?)
    m. Have no idea on CPU, internal memory, or screen type. My smartphone has 3GB/32GB, which has been sufficent so far. (Maybe using for movies dictates what these should be?)
    n. Flash (I guess anyway - for the internet?)

    Now here's the long version. (Skip if you're not interested.) I just figured it will answer any questions that might come up.

    It will be used:

    1. In a car for GPS (Sygic) - and speed (have a g-sensor).

    2. As a car media player. With that in mind, it should have a large external memory card capacity. Also must be capable of two simultaneous bluetooth connections. Why? So I can pair it to a car stereo (not yet purchased), and a second connection to a bluetooth keyboard/mouse - because...

    3. Must have Wi-Fi to access an internet hotspot 'wingle' in the car.

    4. I have read that older versions of bluetooth might not support two connections. So I prefer a recent version of bluetooth.

    5. Running (or able to be updated/rooted to) Marshmallow.

    6. Supports 3G/4G/LTE phone. (I'm in Australia. But I can work out the correct frequency bands. If a tablet supports 3G/4G/LTE in the USA, then it probably does here too.)

    7. Price isn't a hurdle. Like everyone, cheaper is better. But if I have to pay $$$ to get the features, then so be it.

    8. For size I was thinking 9 inch, maybe 10. But again, that's flexible. I need to meet the other requirements first.

    9. I'm comfortable with Android. In fact I prefer the tablet have root-support - because I've read bluetooth audio can constantly drop out, with bloatware churning away in the background. (So I'd like to be able to 'plain-vanilla' the tablet to prevent that.)

    10. I'd prefer it to be black, not white. But once again, I'll have to take what I can get.

    11. Do tablets have wireless charging? (This would make removing it from plain-sight quicker/easier.)

    Thanks for reading. :)

    1) what you will be using the tablet for. list any features you need, such as g-sensor, gps, bluetooth, Adobe Flash, or any specific apps
    Most important thing is that the camera is decent quality and has a flash (not Adobe Flash, camera flash). Struggling to find any tablets with a flash camera.

    2) how much you are willing to spend
    £400

    3) if you have an idea, what the size of the tablet should be
    above 8 inches

    4) how much you know about Android, or just whether or not you are computer literate
    not hugely important - business use only so the operatives will only be using a couple of apps

    5) Please list your location somewhere. (You should really include it in your profile, by the way)

    OK I want a cheap tablet without the big name price tag, I am willing to buy direct from China and don't mind a 20 day wait for delivery, have a little experience buying from Aliexpress. Resolution 1920x1080 is needed but no more, 7" to 9" size, preferably 32gb storage but will go for 16gb if the price is attractive enough, some gaming capabilities preferred. Android 4.4 minimum Android 5.0 preferred. Wifi only is fine. £100 or less price.

    I know there are some really solid Chinese devices but I need to know which ones.

    Hi, I'd like help choosing a tablet. My laptop is getting old and slow and needs replacing, and I really like the look of what my friends who have an iPad with keyboard to replace their laptop, but I would prefer to stay with Android as it will match other devices in my house.

    I'm computer literate and generally competent but it's been a really long time since I've needed to understand computer type stuff as my husband is a geek and takes care of it for me, but he is software and not interested in researching hardware for me.

    My needs: it needs to be able to do everything a laptop would do, I'd prefer higher specs as I like my gadgets to last longer.

    I'll be doing typical computer stuff, from checking designs from my designer before they go to print, accounting and client records/database for my business, Google docs/open office, watching videos with my child, that type of thing

    I know I'll need to buy the keyboard to go with it, if people have suggestions there that would be great too :)

    Budget is a little flexible and in the laptop range, so hopefully well under $1000, but expecting over $500.
