MoDaCo Recommends... Best Sub £200 Tablet - The Results...
The biggest issue facing those looking to purchase a Vega is the lack of availability - they are pretty much only available second hand or refurbed on ebay and similar sites. They seem to have help onto their value pretty well as they are still selling at over £100.
All of this makes the Archos our number one recommendation for those buyers looking to purchase a brand new model. The cheapest on the internet today is around £160 if you look hard enough. If you prefer to buy from the bigger retailers then Amazon are currently selling for £190. It has a smaller 8" screen, where the Vega has a 10.1" and a rather smart 3G option. The Archos G9 now has ICS available as an update from the manufacturer.
Rounding out the top 3 is the Ainol Novo 7 Aurora, a 7" tablet that comes with ICS out of the box, and costs around £140.
It is pretty a disappointing position we are currently in with the sub £200 tablet category if the best we can recommend is a tablet that isn't produced anymore, followed by one that doesn't get the best of reviews. Hopefully we will see a big change in the coming months if we see either the rumoured 'Google Nexus' tablet, or the Asus MeMo tablet range.
Personally I would suggest waiting until we have something concrete regarding these tablets, or go and take a look at the Blackberry Playbook. Although it is not an Android tablet, it can run Android apps, has an excellent screen, and currently is available for around £170.
