Hey all.

My sister has a friend that is wanting to get her young daughter, 10 or 11 years old, a tablet for XMAS to have fun with. She doesn't know much about this stuff and my sister said she would ask me for help. So here I am.

I know there are cheap, knock-off Android tablets from China being sold out there, but I don't know which one to suggest or which would be the best choice.

From what I gather she can't spend much and would like a 10 inch screen.

Do you all know what I could suggest for her? Do you have any experience with these inexpensive tablets where you could point me in the right direction?

Thanks for the help.

My BIL bought his 2 kids Pandigital tablets last Christmas, I laughed and thought they may last a day but both are still running as of last week. They are cheap but I really don't know how cheap, QVC has them on air a lot also but they are expensive on everything they sell.

Get yourself a Motorola Xoom wifi, or a Galaxy Tab or a Google Nexus...

Those are the only 3 tablets I can recommend, 2 are sub $250 and the Galaxy is sub $350


I own the xoom wifi and it's a Google device, don't get the GSM version unless you need phone. My xoom is updated with the newest firmware before ANY other tablet... Well the Xoom and the Nexus Tablet that is.

Though the guy in this thread might want it back.

A good reason to get an IPAD since they have Find My IPad as stock.

There is a Nabi tablet for kids which is pre-loaded with games and educational apps. I bought one for my 2yr old at wally for $129.00 on black friday weekend. Don'nt let the child proof rubber case fool you into thinking this is a cheap tablet for kids who don't know any better. Is a full blown 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS (on parent mode), plus it also runs a virtual OS (child mode) with filtered web browser and restrictions. Has a Nvidia tegra 3 1.4Mhz processor with 1GB system memory and 8 GB internal memory. that thing is powerful and competes with any 7" tablet on the market today. Is a little secret not many people know. And Yes, there is a way to access the google android market despite of what you may hear.

this will be your best deal for a kid ( big lots had them for less then a 100.00 )

Yet they are still for sale :steamed: and places like QVC never mentions this important info, thanks for bringing this up.

Samsung galaxy tab II 7 inch goes for around 170 right now. I absolutely love it. It also comes with Samsung Dive, which is just as good or better than "Find My iPad"
