Android tablets that won’t break the bank
The popularity of tablets has increased exponentially over the past few years. There are a large number of Android based tablets available at the moment and quite a few of them aren’t expensive. Let’s take a look at few Android based tablets that won’t break the bank.
The Toshiba Thrive, aka the AT100, was released earlier this year and it is now one of the best value for money Android tablets around. Don’t let the value for money tag fool you as this tablet does have quite a few features that most tablets don’t. For starters this is probably the only tablet with full size ports for HDMI, USB and SD cards. This way you don’t need to buy any adapters to convert micro ports to regular ones. This tablet also has a 5 megapixel camera which takes decent pictures. The only downside to this tablet is the fact that it is quite thick and bulky because of the full sized ports.
Cruz 8 inch Tablet
If you are really desperate to get yourself an E-reader and you want the Android OS along with it then the Cruz 8 inch tablet is the way to go. The Cruz 8″ LCD 1ghz processor WI-FI tablet like most budget Android ones runs on Gingerbread and does not have the option of upgrading to Honeycomb. This tablet features the large and growing Amazon App store. The battery life of this tablet is the only feature that could have been better. I am sure most of us would have hoped for a lot more than 5 hours on a full charge.
Samsung 7inch Galaxy tab
Samsung’s original 7 inch tablet was the first to take on the fight to the Apple iPad. This 7 inch tablet runs on Froyo (Android 2.2) which might look a little out of date but does its job quite well. This 7 tablet does look outdated but you could always get a RooCase for 7.0 Samsung tablet and it will look as good as the ones you get now.
So get yourself one of these budget android tablets this holiday season and experience portable computing at its best.
