With Christmas looming I'm wondering if there is a good cheap android tablet suitable for 10 year olds up to learn / play on. I like the idea of a cheap tablet to be used as an introduction to tablet computing and in fact also like the idea of introducing AppInventor as a way of creating for (not just using) what is probably closer to the future of computing than a PC (imho).
There are a bunch of options out there (trademe has plenty) and although I know "you get what you pay for" I dont want to shell out a couple of hundy for something that is basically unusable - which seems to be a distinct possibly in the cheap android tablet market!
Anyone got any hands on experiences / recommendations? I quite like the look of this http://www.chinavasion.com/android-tablets-phones/ingenium-23-android-23-tablet-with-7-inch-touchscreen-wifi-camera-hdmi-4gb/ but am not sure if I should pull the trigger on it.
Interested in your thoughts.
