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.
$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?
