[LUG] Cheap tablet


Recently we, that is to say the wife, decided we should have a few more short breaks away. (In this country but, being pensioners, we can go out of season and get some very good deals.)

The wife has an iPad (I know, but she said it was her money so she would spend it on what she liked.) It is easy to pack and to take with us, and she is able to keep in touch with emails, facebook etc while away. It also takes some half decent photos.

I am obviously not going to pack a 17" inch laptop to take and I do not have anything suitable otherwise. (I do have a mobile phone, but it is not a smart phone.) I am thinking about getting a cheap tablet, mainly for keeping up with emails and checking local information.

So I have been looking online. And, as usual, I have finished up very confused. (I don't want anything to do with an iPad, or with Windows, so that Android is all that is left apparently.) One of the cheapest so far is the Amazon Fire, which has some mixed reviews and some others from China. I am wary about those.

If anyone on the list can come up with some ideas/suggestions I would be grateful.

Many thanks,
