Best tablet for under £130?

I've been looking for a tablet for ages. The ones I've found for around that price are not the best. Just wondering if any of you could help me?
Checklist:
9.7 inch capacitive screen at least
ICS
Flash (like to catch up on TV)
Google Play (seen some tablets which weirdly don't have the market)
microSD card slot
ATLEAST 1ghz processor
Ram 512 or over

Archos G9 80 http://store.archos.com/archos-android-tablet-p-5016.html But only 8'' - I don't know of a 10in tab with your requirements for £130

Think OP has to lower sights or raise budget or wait a while to fit those needs to that budget.
Archos 80 isn't fitting that budget either tbh.

True, he's have to find a very good offer.
As to 'setting sights lower' - a GoTab, maybe...

The Ergo one? Still outside budget over here, wonder which chinese tablet it's a rebrand of as otherwise seems like it pretty much fits.

Yes, again, he'd have to go for the 8in GoTab... They aren't that bad, though.

On the 8" line of thought this just popped up on hukd and seems quite decent.

How much are HP TouchPads going for nowadays?

Pondlife  Jul. 9, 2012 at 14:45

Still more than during fire sale and that's for second hand. hmm

The 7" ICS toting dual core generic chinese tabs have just started to creep in at under the £100 mark (80ish for some of them) but a 9.7" screen will set that price substantially higher.
A friend got the Arnova G2 80 which is the same screen size and 1Ghz and I think 512Mb, but it only runs GB and doesn't have Market/Play out of the box. (that's because it aint a phone - running a phone O/S - Google no likey)
I got an Archos 70b Internet Tab 2 for £140 earlier in the year, running Honeycomb with play installed, 1.2Ghz 512Mb RAM, 8gb Storage (and a 32GB sd card now too) but it's a measly 7" screen. (which suits me perfectly as a wannabe Kindle with more grunt than an eReader and full HD TV output.)

There are plenty-

I've ordered from this site and they're fine. Been posted on HUKD a few times, here is the best according to your specs-

Better than the specs you said and well within your price range.

Out of stock, out of stock and over price range, 7" in order though I'd looked there as the aurora was tempting me a couple of weeks back, feel there's room for price drops there now.

AhmadCentral  Jul. 9, 2012 at 22:12

Thats funny, the first one was in stock when i posted it. And i think the third one was meant to be 10 inches? maybe i misposted.

Pondlife  Jul. 9, 2012 at 22:48

First one wasn't in stock when I first posted on thread this morning as I thought I'd seen a couple on there, guess it was in stock briefly though. Shame as seems to suit.
They only had two 10" on there for a while, and the 7" ones look more interesting spec other than screen size. Elf and Aurora have had some issues though. :(

AhmadCentral  Jul. 9, 2012 at 23:00

maybe. I'd buy the first/second one if only it had a higher res screen or maybe a faster processor.
