Help Me Decide On A Tablet
Yes, i know lots of people have asked this before but i’m buying one for my wife for her birthday. I have £129 to spend.
Basically she’s going to go on the internet, play games and read magazines via the e reader option.
I’m liking the Kindle for it’s 9hr battery life, but i’m more familiar with an android operating system (it’s on my Sony Ericsson Xperia).
Which one should i go for?

I bought one of these:
Amazing for the price, but no GPS. For me, 10″ is only for indoors use anyway so it’s perfect.Posted 4 years ago
Software is still on version 1.0 and it will freeze occasionally – bit annoying but restarting sorts it. Hopefully there will be an update at some point.dannybgoodeSubscriber
Don’t discount the Blackberry PlayBook. Awesome build quality, 64GB memory, lovely operating system.
Will destroy any budget ‘Droid tablet – either that or save for a decent ‘Droid one otherwise you will be disappointed.
Couple of things to be aware of. No Skype and no Netflix apps but does web browsing, facebook etc and many Android apps are now available for it.
I bought one for my wife for Christmas and liked it so much I got one myself.

Kindle is indeed great (when the Skype works – effing criters), the Nexus 7 you can get on offer for £50 with a Sunday Times subscription apaprantly. I will say having viewd both side by side, the quiality on the Kindle is better than the Nexus in terms of screen quality/glare – and the inbuilt mail app is better on the kindle.Posted 4 years agounovoloMember
I have a Nexus 7 which I’m more than happy with,
Another slightly leftfield alternative is a Nook HD
Not really had much of a play on one but they do feel nice in the hand and I do prefer there e-reader to Amazons kindle.Posted 4 years agopitchpro2011Member
The new larger kindle fire hd. Take it from me, I have every top tablet out in my house pretty much. Nexus picture is great but colours are saturated and the internet is slow just like the iPad. what’s the point in a full hd tablet if it’s Wi fi is to slow to stream it? Kindle is android just modified. And you can side apps in if you wanted. Battery life is great. My family are computer geeks. Dads a networking specialist… he too has the fire hd like me. I can’t praise it enough get one. Anything you can’t do ask me and I’ll explain how…….don’t let me fix your bike though.Posted 4 years agochvckMember

What? I stream loads on nexus 4 and iPad and my girlfriend loads on her nexus 7, all on wifi. I also do a fair amount over 3g. I’ve not used a Fire HD but don’t the Fire at all, I believe that the HD is a fair step up though?Posted 4 years agoTurnerGuyMember
£130 will get you that Archos titanium 80 thing from carphone warehouse, I think:
same size and res as the ipad mini, which got me thinking about it for reading PDFs as I prefer the 4:3 aspect ratio.Posted 4 years ago
