Any particular standouts for sub $100 and sub $200 Android tablets available in NZ or imported?

Personally quite happy with my HP Slate 7 fits both the price categories i paid $99 new in a store opening sale but they retail at about the $200 mark normally. Overall quite good but let down by the screen resolution which is not HD.

Shameless plug :)
I've got a pretty much brand new hp slate 7 silver you can have for $150 plus courier.
Less than a month old and in original box etc.
Was hoping to use it as another point of sale device but screen just a bit too small so we will get another 10" tablet.

Wouldn't it be worth getting a second hand one with better specs than a new cheap one?

Unless of course it's for a present...

HP Slate 7 would be my pick in that budget.

Try the Nextbook 7 Premium, I HAD one, until I bricked it trying to flash CWM onto it.

I imported a Nexus 7 2013 edition and it's by far the best tablet I've used. In my opinion it's worth spending the little bit extra and going towards the N7 or picking up the old version of the N7 online.
