Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a cheap(ish) tablet with the following stats:

* Ability to run Skype
* Front-facing camera for Skype (doesn't have to be high-quality)
* Capacitive screen
* Preferably 1024 X 768 rather than lower rez (willing to compromise on this)

EDIT: What do people think of the LY-F1 for example? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAW79YDMYrI

Cheers,

P.

What is your budget ?

Was hoping not more than €150.

What do you think of the Scroll Excel? It's the top-selling one on dabs.ie; seems to get decent reviews and it's €125:

Or should I stretch to something like the Blackberry Playbook for €200? http://komplett.ie/Komplett/product/tablets/80005671/blackberry_7_playbook_16gb/details.aspx

EDIT: The fact that the Blackberry appears to come with Documents to Go preinstalled would be a bonus.

Though is the Blackberry Playbook still crippled if you don't have a tethered phone?

This gets good reviews on Amazon,

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006M07X34/ref=s9_hps_bw_g23_t1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=right-6&pf_rd_r=160ETPHTPTY7QYGNF9GA&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=268342307&pf_rd_i=429892031

Seems to tick all the boxes except the one on resolution which you said you're willing to compromise on.

Also fits your budget.

Thinking of getting one of these myself, because I don't want to shell out big money on a tablet.

I don't know myself but I see the poster above, Jarren has made a suggestion.

Think I'll order it from there myself.

for sites outside EU you will most likely get caught for customs.

That's fairly quick, spuddy01, "today" was Tuesday — were you caught for VAT/duty? Was the item posted from HK or the UK?
