If you're interested in getting a tablet but don't want to pay the half a grand premium for a new iPad or iPad imitator, you've got a slew of other options.
The Android tablets we post on this page vary widely in terms of processor speed, available RAM, and overall capabilities. Some will be able to stream Netflix shows and movies in very high quality while others may be a little more modest in their repertoire.
Regardless, at these prices, these tablets are undoubtedly worthy of your consideration and can often do more than devices made for specialized purposes that are more expensive.
For example, Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite eReader currently costs $119 at the cheapest. For that, you'll still see advertisements on the home screen when you're using it, you get a black and white (read: not color) screen, and a very limited experimental web browser that can be used for reading Wikipedia articles, checking basic email, and other simple tasks. You don't get the ability to play MP3s since there's no speaker or headphone jack.
Chances are right now there's an unassuming Android tablet on this page that you could read an eBook on - in full color - while simultaneously listening to your favorite music. And it probably costs less than most popular eReaders.
As with any "discount" products, you'll want to read further about models you're considering to determine whether they'll meet your needs. There's no point in getting a tablet if you're just going to end up using it as a shiny glorified cutting board in your kitchen because it didn't do what you bought it to do.
Few of these tablets will rival a more polished, R&Dd model like the iPad. But if you're looking for something to check email on the go, surf the web, watch a few videos, and maybe even play a little Angry Birds in Space, one of these tablets could be your diamond in the rough without costing anywhere close to one.
