My return questions are the typical.
1. How much do want to pay?
2. How much support do you want?
3. How technical are you?
All of these questions would push me one way or another.
Me, I have done the potentially stupid and pre-ordered an Archo 101 about a month ago. Will I be happy? who knows. But it will be my seventh Archos unit I have owned. And yes, that is a sign of dementia in my opinion
Even with their silly proprietary profit-minded model I am still choosing them. I think it is I am just ANTI-Apple. Please stop me before I buy another one. Anyone in the market for my 404/30, 504/80,604/30,605Wifi/30, IMT5/250, Home Android 7. (BTW: Most of these I picked up on the 'Bay.)
I am going to do something I rarely do. I will list three and the source capability and within your price MINUS shipping and wish you luck. My only comment is these all will be outdated with the Christmas rush in about 30-45 days
1. Zenithink ZT-180 10" tablet Android 2.1 Gsensor Price-$180-220USD Source - Multiple CPU ARM11- Opinion- Good and Bad/ Search and you will see what I mean. It
2. EPAD Clone with Telechips Android 2.1-2.2 $225-275USD Source- Multiple CPU TeleChips 890x Opinion Good and Bad depending upon provider
3. Archos 101 8Gb Android 2.2 Price $299 (Sorry could not help it) Source Look about CPU ARM8 Opinion - I hope Good
Only recommendation STAY AWAY from CPU VIA 8505 Chipset units for 10 inch. These are even slower than the 7 inch due to screen refresh. These are the cheapest 10inch units being sold.
But Note: That is just my opinion. And no I am not recommending Vendors
