Cheap Tablet for Causal Usage


Hi guys am looking for a cheap but reliable tablet for causal usage like for eBooks, documents editing, mails and browsing and if capable some time-pass gaming..
Any OS will do, but i think for my budget it either Android or any other Linux variant.. Preferably 10" display..
Looking for something below 10k Rs or 150usd..
At first i thought of getting a laptop(around the likes of T420), but will be using this mainly while traveling so decided to go with a tablet if available .. Also will e getting a laptop next year so not at all looking for netbook..
Any suggestions will be helpful....

10K for a tablet?That is way to less.

Your only option is waiting for the release of the kindle fire, it will be priced at 199$.

No dude not at all.Weak processor, mostly old version of android and unreliable hardware.

Try and get your hands on the Kindle Fire when it releases.

You may wish. Its available from Indiatimes and some other sites for 15K.

Best - ask someone coming from US. Book it from Amazon using Indian CC and deliver it to some friend's US address.

Re: Cheap Tablet for Causal Usage

In terms of hardware, the Kindle Fire doesn't have a camera or microphone -- so no video chat -- and doesn't have 3G connectivity or GPS

are you trying to tell us that ipad and samsung tab are made in central london?

i know all about QC. but have you ever considered that some people might not be willing to shell out "good laptop money" for a "just a tab"? Consider this: You can get a fairly good laptop for 30k. of course, even that might sound measly to some.

And in the end, the production costs of your uber tabs are not much more than $200. the rest $400 you pay is the premium for the brand and the 10% better quality.

Lets not debate this. just suggest a 'cheap tablet' with maximum vfm if you can.

what are you trying to say rpm? The OP wants to go for a chinese tablet, so according to you he should just get one? Its seems you have not used enough tabs to judge their quality.

Read my posts above, i asked him to get a 10k kindle fire from the states, never asked asked him to spend 30k.

All i suggested the OP is not to go for some el cheapo brand, would you go around using max mobile and stuff?

Re: Cheap Tablet for Causal Usage

here is a popular saying
"mehnga roye ek baar sasta roye baar baar" which can be transliterated to you
if you buy good stuff which is little expensive, you wont have troubles with it as often as you will have some cheap low quality stuff.
