Is there something like "The Current top 5 andriod tablet list"?


Oct 26, 2010
I just started looking into these as I am about to take a job that requires a decent amount of travel, and getting info on these tablets much less comparing them is a huge task from what I have seen so far.

The main 2 things I want is
Video Chat
Be able to watch media via an SD card or whatever

I have not decided if I want a 7 inch or bigger screen but that mostly comes from not knowing what is "best". On amazon and newegg I have found the Archos 7 but the reviews on both sites are lackluster at best.

I figure seeing what this community thinks are the best of the tablets will give me a good place to start.

Since the response time seems to be pretty slow on this forum I figured I would post what I have found so far and you guys can shoot them down or say if it's any good.

As far as video chat, as far as I know (it not being one of my priorities) the only one that does is the business marketed hp 500 slate. The Galaxy tab (a 7 inch tablet) does in the UK but not here.

The really good tablets won't come out until after nov. 1st, and some of the new tablets won't have android 2.2 so they won't support flash video.


Oct 26, 2010
Okay, I thought the archos 7 might have a front facing camera, but I guess not.

thanks for the info.


Oct 26, 2010
Im pretty sure Im getting the Archos 101. It has the front facing camera

If you look around you can pre-order the 101 for $299 8gb/$349 16gb

The Archos 7 Tablet is wrong... well nm that's for the Home Tablet

THe Archos 7o is just like the 101, except it can have a 250 gb hd and the usb host is a slave?... anyways, it costs around 270 for 8gb of internal storage and 350 for 250 gb storage


Oct 26, 2010
so the archros 7 does have a camera for video chat?

Basically I'd like to know can you video chat via skype with this thing? and if so is it pc to pc or mobile to mobile?

OK, I will take a stab. But will only focus on units available NOW. Soo, that means no pre-orders or around the corner devices. I will update this November as things Change. (Sorry, That means no Archos 101, 70, or Samsung) So on with my idiot's insight.
These are not in any particular order, by the way

Wellcom A800: While expensive, it is available. It will cost $$$ Froyo, integrated 3G/WiFi,and capable of running Gingerbread now. CPU: Qualcomm MSM7227 (App: ARM11 600MHz, RAM:512M, 16M Color, Full Google compatibility, Price:$500USD

X5A/G11/X6 Various: It is not a goshwow like the Wellcom, but it is not as pricey as the Wellcom by a long shot CPU:Telechips 8902 800Mhz ARM 11 processor
RAM:2-6 Gb Only Eclair now but Froyo on the way Price:$180-280USD

Hero M802/A8PAD: Odd size but nice feel:8 inch, Resistive but has Froyo, CPU:Freescale IMX515 800MHz ARM Cortex A8. RAM:512Mb Storage:4G. Just WiFi, but indicators of 3G Modem compatibile Price:$275

WITstech A81-E: It does NOT have a G-Sensor or Mic, but does have a decent CPU and loaded with Froyo: Next version will be with a G-Sensor CPU: TI OMAP3 CORTEX A8 600MHz RAM:256M Storage:2Gb Price:$170-240

HaiPad G10: I just like it. It has so many nice features and is an almost like the A81-E in my opinion Only Eclair, right now Capacitive CPU:Telechips 8902 RAM:256M Storage: 2-8Gb Price:$250-300

But this is just my opinion and you may disagree.
