Well here is the story As you know Boarders Bookstore is shutting down nation wide..that was our main bookstore for our area. I like to read but do so slowly just a chapter or 2 before bed so it can take me months to read a full book. So I was thinking in the near future the only way for me to get a book would be the internet OR library where id have to renew it like 5 times before I would be finished reading it lol. SO I was just gonna break down and grab a Kindle or Nook when I started thinking for around the same price I could grab a lower priced Tablet and download or use a e reader type App. This would also give me a few games to play say on a car trip or while sitting around waiting for kid to finish football practice or what ever and I could also surf the web if im near a wireless connection or check my email and well READ... I dont think the LCD type screen as opposed to a kindle type screen would be a issue as I seldom read for longer than 1/2 a hour 1 hour tops at a time anyways. So what would you recommend as a low cost Tablet that would 1. work well as a e reader 2. let me surf the web 3. check email 4. play a few lame games lol PS Im trying to get a HP Touchpad but cant find one that would seem to do well for all my stuff but again its availability issue. the ones I have researched but cant find enough GOOD info on are the Coby Kyros 7022 Super pad3 X220 Zenithink epad Velocity micro T301 Sumixe My wife has the Nook Color that we like but I really dont want to spend $250+ on one just $200 preferably a bit less.
