    I've looked at Android Tablet Comparison , and it seems that the "APAD E7002/G10/M701 " is the best one to get right now... Are there any better ones? I would basically be using it to browse the net/play games/read books for class/toy around with.

    I would like to spend around $200, but I am willing to spend up to $350+ if its really worth it to get Ipad like quality.

    Thanks alot!

    If you have $350+ to spend on a tablet than wait for the Samsung tablet. It is the best you can find right now. If you want a cheap one...than the E7002 is nice if you want Android 2.1...If you want 2.2 out of the box than I am afraid that only the Wits A81E fits.

    What is the Samsung tablet, when does it come out? Is there a very big difference between 2.1 and 2.2?

    Check out the new eLocity A7 on Amazon. It has NVIDIA Tegra 2 Chipset, WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera and HDMI output. Looks very nice!

    Android 2.2 has JIT (improves performance) and also, besides some hardware dependencies, Flash need Android 2.2 to run.
    Android 2.1 is really good...just that 2.2 is better.

    So it looks like the Archos 70 is the best 7" to get right now in that price range $275... 1 Ghz , 8gigs onboard, wifi, bluetooth, • Built-in speakers
    • Built-in leg stand
    • Built-in Microphone
    • G-sensor
    • Front VGA Camera • Music playback time6: up to 36 hours
    • Video playback time6: up to 7 hours
    • Web surfing6: up to 10 hours

    The only downside is the ram is only 256 and it doesnt have access to the android makertplace [​IMG] ... Are there any competitors to the Archos70 that are cheaper but still on the same level?

    Thanks!

    Right now the TCC8902 is the best to get, but Merimobiles is only selling a bit high...

    What do you mean selling a bit high, in price? You are referring to the Apad/ Gpad/ G10 / E7002 / M701 correct?

    Merimobile has them for $175 with free case ( APAD E7002/G10/M701 Multitouch android 2.1 1080p Gsensor Market +Free Leather Case ) , Pandawill has it for $178 ( Buy Gpad G10 Android 2.1 MID 7 Inch 1080P 3D Games Multi-Touch Gravity Sensor 4GB Camera compare price at pandawill.com )

    Merimobiles shipping starts at $30
    Pandawill ships free

    Cases are worth about $5

    The markup at MM is about 15% higher than China based stores line Pandawill and DealExtreme.
