Tablet suggestions (quickly I have to order today to make her birthday)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I need a tablet for my 8 year old(well she will be on the 30th). We had an HP Touchpad, but that piece of...equipment didn't survive the tons of heat and being run completely dead. She also never liked the size or weight, we also have a Pantech Element that has held up extremely well. Basically looking at something that can play games like angry birds and for reading books. Ideally budget should be $120 but might be able to get it up to $140 if it was just a billion miles better(going in with several family members to make the $120, so anything more comes out of me).

I would definitely pick up that N7. I've had mine for a year and have used it almost every single day. No problems what so ever.

The absolute best in the category you are looking at would be the renewed Nexus 7 that just got anounced, imho, but starting at $199, it might be a bit on the expensive side.
The original Nexus 7 would be a very close second, imho, you can't beat the Nexus line when it comes to android devices, in general. They're sanctioned by Google themselves, are guaranteed updates on the very same day new OS-updates get announced, and imho you can't beat the stock android experience.

If it's between the original Nexus 7 and the Nook, N7 without a doubt.
(I've owned both, as it happens)

Google has just shown some impressive functionality for parental controls and restriction of in-app purchases in Android 4.3, which makes the Nexus 7, which was already a great contender in my book, even better.

I really liked my Nexus 7, though for web-browsing it seemed far too narrow.
I supposed books are fine, however I prefer mine to be printed on paper.

+1 on the Nexus 7. Perhaps you can find a used one for cheap.
