Looking to get a Tablet

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a Samsung 8.9" 4G LTE tablet currently, I bought it off Craigslist real cheap. LOVE the thing, buuuut they don't have ICS or Jellybean for this thing yet mad.gif

I'm getting a Touchpad tomorrow also pretty cheap, but I have a feeling it's going to be a tad too big for me.


Any other tablets worth looking at? The Nexus 7 looks nice...wanted something inbetween 7 and 10 inches, and a gorgeous screen, which the Nexus 7 does not have.

Budget, meh around $200 I suppose. Less is more.

I def want Jellybean if possible with CM10

You won't find a tablet around that price with Jellybean.

Unless....

You pick the Nexus 7.

Obviously, things will pick up in that price range market over the next few months; but we're not talking the next few months.

It's a good Tablet.

I've only been hands on with the thing once, but I've read plenty of reviews.

JB is awesome, and the tablet is real nice; feels like heaps more than $200.

Nexus 7 is your answer. Best tablet to this date. The screen is awesome, actually. I love mine.

Yeah for 200, nexus 7 or the blackberry playbook. Unless you can find a used Asus Transformer.

Yeah, there aren't many tablets at the 200 dollar price point. The only GOOD android tablets I would use are the Nexus 7, Asus Transformer Infinity, and the new Samsung one. But those other two are 500

Acer Iconia A110. Unfortunately it won't be out for a couple of weeks.

$199 price tag, very similar to Nexus 7 but it also has HDMI out (Nexus does not nor does it have MHL support), supports external USB or hard drives without requiring rooting via OTG, and most importantly it has a micro SD slot.

Release date is for September so it should be out imminently.
