    Im getting my gran a tablet but im not sure which to get because there are SO MANY!

    I dont have a tablet myself so thought I could be pointed in the right direction from this forum :)

    She would only be using it for streaming movies, reading books general internet browsing.

    She doesnt need:
    She doesnt need a quad-core, a single core would be enough.
    loads of RAM
    camera of any sort (although a low resolution on the back wouldnt be a negative, just not a necessary)

    She does need:
    reletivley ok screen resolution
    capacitive screen
    internal 3G - she doesnt have the internet in her house, so were going to use a sim card to stream movies)


    Thanks for any help or advice, as im sure you can understand as a non tablet owner, there are a lot to choose from and a lot of manufacturers, so im asking from help from the experts!

    Right off the bat you are going to need a cellular provided and supported tablet.
    That is a given if 3G is needed. This will also come with a monthly fee and probably a minimum of a two year contract for the cellular service.

    Copy and paste the URL above in to your browser and read the article if it is not a link. I'm on a tablet and copy and paste is alien to me on these things so I was lucky to get that much done, if it is a link it was a miracle.
    Be sure to check out any linked articles on the page as well.
    Being that you will need a 3G model I will stop on this post and let someone who knows those devices comment.
    Good luck.

    I can get a Giff Gaff sim only contract for £10 that comes with (actually) unlimited data and its a one month only contract so that shouldnt be a problem :)
