    Best sub-$300 or $200 tablet w/ video chat

    Hello,
    My colleague is moving from NY to Florida and he asked that I post this here. He is looking to keep in touch with his friends and family by buying several Anrdoid tablets to give away so he can video chat easily. I am wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a sub-$300 (and as low as it can go) Android tablet that performs video chat well and has a front-facing camera? It would be very helpful.

    I don't know of any in that price range... The only thing that comes to mind in that range (which isn't android) is an iPod Touch with FaceTime. It's not a "tablet" but I don't know you're going to find one under $300 at this point.

    How about just buying some netbooks, which can be had for about $200 a piece? These can practically be almost as portable as a tablet and will handle video chat just fine.

    Not a bad idea. Do you know of a netbook that has good volume and particularly good video chat?

    What about the Dell Streak 7? Anyone have any reviews? Strong sound is a plus:

    I doubt they tried it, I'd search for reviews.

    Dropad is a sub-$200 option. I'm pretty sure it has a front-facing camera. All over the web.. Picked one up as a gift on DX.

    viewsonic is a top tier monitor brand. i think their pad would also reflect that quality.

    Instead of brands, you should be looking into the internals, such as the CPU, amount of RAM, which screen etc etc etc

    $300 Nextbook Premium 8 Android tablet, also you can get a Kindle Fire or Lenovo IdeaPad A1 for $200. For the same price you can get an Archos G9 8" tablet with the same size screen (and screen ratio) at a higher resolution, with honeycomb, a dual core cpu and much better specs overall. Not that I'm interested in either, but why would anyone buy this?
