I feel like there is a market for a budget tablet that I haven't seen. Things I feel that aren't needed on a tablet device.
I can only see one possible use. Skype/facetime type situation but in truth everyone has a smartphone especially the type of person who can have a tablet. A phone is always with you so drop the camera and save the cost.
2. 3G Sim
I know there are lots of tablets that do this already but again use your phone as a way of connecting your tablet to the web when out and about.
3. Excessive storage
for a device like this you don't need more than 16-32GB of storage. You can stream content or even easily transfer from your computer when needed.
If you want to view vids on you TV, then you have lots of options even just using a USB stick to view it on new TVs. Lets drop this too
Again the way I see this budget tablet being used this isn't needed either.
Things I think are still important.
1. Latest version of Android
2. Good responsive touch
3. Similar spec cpu/graphics to other tablets
I should say if some of the things above are relatively cheap to put in then yes you may as well include them but if there is savings to be made then you could sell the device at a more interesting price. The nook and kindle are kind of filling this market but where is the android device in this bracket that isn't tied to a content provider.
Is this tablet already out there? Am I missing it?
Target price I recon should be €275 - €325
