I'm looking to stuff a 7" android tablet in the double din of my 4Runner. But I dont want to spend over $200. Should I buy used? One of the chinese units? Has to have wifi and GPS.
i think you just missed you chance on the HP slate tablets. otherwise, focus on last months/years model once the latest-greatest one comes out, and you should be ableo tget one for a little cheaper.
i have not read of too many people that are happy with the super-cheap chinese units.
I'm expecting a great sale on the Blackberry Playbook. Pretty soon it will be running most Android Apps (except those related to voice, Playbook is not a phone, etc.). Dual core, ultra fast, and the beta android port is ready at crackberry.com
The playbook right now (16GB) is on sale at Best buy for $299.00 (and Office Max and Office Depot with rebates). It was on sale last week for $249.00 and some with coupons manage to get one for $149.00.
I expect it to be 149-199.00 pretty soon, but it will go away fast. Keep your eyes open. If you can't wait a couple of weeks, than you can try a Nook Color, pretty cheap. I just sold mine for $175.00. (Edit: guess I did it at the right time: link)
wifi tether to use it in the car anymore.
Tomorrow, HTC Flyer on sale at BestBuy for $299.00, according to BB's own release. It's amazing that people are still buying Playbooks on ebay for $350 and HTC Flyers are still selling for $470/390 open box. Who are these people?
$299 is a steal, the screen alone is worth that, if you live in Lilliput/Xenarc world.
the new kindle fire sounds like quite a steel, not sure about the peripheries though, the nook color is pretty popular too with root, but your going to have to tether GPS

haha, so true. android tablets still need to come into their own a little bit to really integrate into the dashboard, i love mine but it goes dead quite often and doesn't auto boot with external power like some do which makes it a real pain, still looking for a workaround. if you can find one that auto boots with external power you should be set, i know the nook does, not sure about any others
