I have been looking endlessly for almost a year for a good budget tablet. Yet it seems like every time I feel like buying something, two more better tablets come out. It doesn't particularly help that being in England, it's not easy to get a low cost budget android tablet that has decent specs (dual cores) without blowing 200 quid!

So I started looking at the Chinese retail market and found some interesting tablets for less than £200. For example, the SmarQ T20. Unlike the Ainol Aurora, this tablet has a 10.1" IPS HD display screen, dual cameras - 1.3 mp front facing and 5 mp rear facing - as well as a dual core A9 cortex processor clocked at 1.5GHz. This retails at merimobiles.com at $289.99 which equates to £178.58 with free shipping for the 8GB. Similarly pandawill retails this for $339.99 which is roughly £209.99 for the 16GB version, also with free shipping.

Would you recommend this to anyone who's looking for a cheap device?

Which other devices would you recommend?

The SmarQ T20 tablet

Trouble is finding one, mines damaged and I'm eagerly holding off replacing it until the next modders choice appears, I could afford a more expensive tablet but struggle to justify the cost in my head. I was hoping a sub £250 tablet with great specs would surface and half the Vega community would change over like the blade guys seem to have done with the new huawei
