Should I Buy a Cheap Android Tablet or Not?

by: Mike AndreiDecember 10, 2011

I’m not an advocate of cheap electronics, I’m picky and I’d rather pay a bit extra and get something I know can satisfy my ever-growing demands.

Many people who own an ASUS Eee Pad Transformer consider it to be one of the best 10.1-inch Android tablets on the market, and probably also worth recommending considering its amazing price-to-features ratio. The Eee Pad Transformer has already been selling for months, and ASUS is about to bring out a new toy: the ASUS Eee Pad Slider, which ASUS recently announced officially and which we can expect to see hitting the shops in the next month or so.
