Title: suggest me a super cheap Android 10" pad, please
Post by: Kitty Hello on 2012-Mar-27
Hi,

some family member wants a tablet (10") for mobile web surfing and a "game for cats". That's it. So, I think 500,- for an iPad is way too much. What's the cheapest Android device with the size of an iPad you can "reccomend"? I think capacitive screen is a must.

You can get an Archos 8GB tablet for around £65 (77.76 Euro), which should have a decent performance.  Dont know what screen type is has though. 

If you want to pay more, Samsung tablets might be worth looking at

archos 7 (8GB) seems to only 8 x 4.2 x 0.5 inches. A bit small. They want a big one for the cats to play  :noggin:
The other one is a pre-order. They want it the day before yesterday... :/

A cheap 10"? Jeez. A Nook Color is 8" for 128 euros and it can be triple booted with Cyanogen Mod to run

Blimey.  :blink:

The device app store is SlideMe rather than the standard Android market. That's not so good IMO (unless all us GLB devs sign up  ;) ). Nevertheless from what I Googled it will run Cyanogen 7 with a little effort. That's very good IMO. Mali-400 GPU as well.
