Cheap tablets comparison
Prices less than US$300
People think that a tablet PC is out of their price range. Admittedly, there are plenty of expensive tablets out there, but there are also many budget tablets available. It's not impossible to find a tablet with full functionality and many bells and whistles and not have to spend all the money in your pocket to get it.
Most tablets in the sub-$200 price range come loaded with the Android operating system. Because Android has such a robust feature set, budget tablets don't have to feel like watered down versions of their more expensive counterparts. Because the Google Play market has so many apps that add extra functionality to any tablet, then users do not have to fear that their cheaper tablets can't have some of the same programs the more expensive ones do.
It also depends on what you want to do. All budget tablets are capable of web browsing and email. Most run apps such as games and productivity programs. Many also function as e-book readers. If your needs are simple, then a budget tablet may be just what you are looking for. They can also serve as a relatively cheap entry into tablets in general. You may find that after using your budget tablet for a while, you will want to upgrade to a more mid or high range tablet.
