          I'll +1 that bought one of these as they were so cheap. Really high quality, I believe they were retailing for north of £300 when they first came out. I doubt you'll get one as good for the money http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/blackbe...47930-pdt.html

                If I had to I would go with the Samsung Galaxy.

                I had the Playbook and was great for films and music content especially with the front facing stereo speakers but when I got rid of my Blackberry phone most of the functionality of the Playbook went too so it went on eBay for £70 just 2 months after getting it.

                I saw the Archos tablet in Tesco on offer for £50 a few weeks ago so stupidly I got one, love Archos, always have done, had one of the original harddrive MP3 players years ago but to be fair this tablet lacked so I packaged it up and gave it to my cousin who thinks its the dogs crackers!

                There is a option you have not thought about! A second hand or reconditioned iPad, no need for the latest model, the original iPad is still a great product.

                I always keep my tech up yo date and I am current on my 3rd iPad and it is simply leaps ahead of any android device with verity of apps, speed of device, usability and display.

                You have to take my advice in the knowledge that I am a Apple fan boy I have a iMac, Mac Mini. MacBook, iPod, iPad, iPhone and of course a Apple TV (which is not a TV!) but unlike people with PC's and Android devices I have A large variety of apps which work on all of my devices, all of my contacts, calendars, pictures, notes, alarms and documents are synchronised between devices without me having to think about it, I do not get virus's and things just work as they should.

                Oh and most of this post was entered with voice recognition while I make my first cup of tea for the day
