Run far, far away from resistive screens, as far as your legs will carry you!

You think that you'd get away with using resistive touch. I mean, it has to function as a touchscreen, how bad can it be? But seriously, it's terrible. Really unresponsive, inaccurate to where you press, and it requires that you overpress, as opposed to just touching on a capacitive screen. Also, resistive touch doesn't support multitouch, which is fairly useful.

PC World/Currys currently have the Archos Arnova 10b G3 for under €180

10.1 inch 16:9 ratio multi-touch capacitive screen

Comes running ICS and can easily be flashed with custom firmware for full Play Store access

Friend picked one up at the weekend. Good tablet for the money IMO.

Just a quick question about this tablet, I have a three USB Dongle for internet while out and about. Would the Dongle work with this tablet?

Google Nexus 7 reviews are out:

http://gizmodo.com/5922882/google-ne...pend-200-bucks

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2406552,00.asp

The above are the first two results on Google.

Most seem to be very impressed, think I may get one, although would rather a larger screen. But those specs for that price ain't too bad I suppose.

That Arnova is now €159 in HMV. Personally I wouldn't take it as it has no HDMI out but if this isin't a concern it seems to be reasonably good value at this price.

I think this thread could probably be locked at this stage and the question answered with "Google Nexus 7"

Screen a bit small though.

Probably going for Toshiba AT300 10.1" myself - €399 seems to be one of the best (non IPADs) out there. Esp with HDMI and Quad Core Tegra 3 processor.
