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.

The two tablets are closely related. In fact, they are like the two faces of a coin. Each one bears strong similarities to the other, but each one also comes with a set of peculiarities that make it more or less attractive in the [...]
