    I'll second advent Vega, especially with new VegaICS beta1 rom. NOT great out of the box, but a definite contender once updated (easy to do), and LOTS of developer support online...

    :)

    Advent Vega - Tegra2, decent screen, ICS WIP, 3.2 stable.

    the chinese tabs are coming up, the Ainol tablets mentioned above have great price/performance ratio.

    tilal6991 never believe chines boxes :)

    it has 1 core for the CPU and one for the GPU in one chip. but its the same as a single core.

    I have the first Advance and the ELF and they are grate toys and very cheap.

    cool. Thanks for the info. I did think when I used it that it seemed slower than other dual core devices which I've used.

    I'd 4th the vega if it was still widely available, mine got bust and I've struggled getting a new replacement. It's a shame the scroll extreme hasnt made it to market yet as I think this could be a contender for this crown following the excels triumph on the gadget shows budget tests

    HTC Flyer (I bought it for 229 € - which should classify for the below 200 GPD limit).

    Pro

    1 GHz CPU

    1 GB RAM

    Nice and luminous 7" screen with a solution of 1024 X 600

    light weight (420g)

    solid body

    Con

    Not really rootable :-(

    ICS not to be seen yet

    Conclusion

    I really got to like this tablet and use it for almost everything now (at least for those things a tablet is intended for :-) - this is

    Reading, watching movies, doing my email, facebook, google+, twitter ...

    Oh - and I forgot: I tested almost every tablet below 200 €. This included Lenovo A1 7" Ideapad, Archos G9 7" and some no name products. All of them had something to it which I couldn't get around to really like them.

    Well I'm just going to speak from experience and say I love my G9 80.

    Faults aside it's a solid choice for the budget

    I just bought the NATPC M009S, although i didn't try the other budget tablets mentioned, i think this one is a real contender.

    So far i am very happy with it...however could really use a custom rom to absolutely perfect it, as i know what a huge difference that can make.

    Running my ZTE Skate with the CyanogenMod 7 and loving it! :)

    The existing development community for the advent Vega and other p10an01 clones adds so much value to this old dog. The spec is still good value for money. The Vega gets my vote.
