Tablet for Parents

    Hey folks,

    Looking to get a tablet for my mother (60+) for Xmas. All it will be used for is Skype video chatting and web browsing/checking emails. Needs to have a decent size screen and needs to be on the cheaper end of the market.

    With that in mind I'm looking at the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 which is coming in at under €250 delivered. Is there any reason not to go with this tablet or another one better suited to the tasks outlined above?

    Seriously, web browsig, checking emails (maybe through an gmail or yahoo mail app if available) and video chatting on Skype will be the entire extent of it's use. No gaming, music, video etc will ever be used.

    Thanks in advance!
