    Hello,
    I'm looking into buying an android tablet, and am new to the whole idea/ technology. i live in mosow, russia but tablets are cheaper in the states, but i'm wondering how easy it is to "unlock" them from whatever provider they're sold with, such as AT&T. i want a 3G one that i assume i could then put in a russian sim-card and it would work here. i've been looking at the Samsung Galaxy Tabs or maybe the Acer or Asus, but i know less about those brands. the 32Gb HD seems small, but i guess that's the standard. my price range is around 500$. thanks for any suggestions or advice!

    maybe you can try buying somethign on amazon or ebay and have it shipped to russia. just yesterday i read that import duties on tablets have been lifted in russia - http://www.gazeta.ru/business/2012/03/05/4027737.shtml

    there are lots of refurbished tablets available that are unlocked and will fit your budget.
