    After reading the new york times article on how apple exploits its store workers and under compensates them, the thought of getting an ipad is a bit sickening. On the other hand, nothing else seems to be as good. I just got the google nexus 7 and am not happy (I'm in europe and can't even access the google play>movie>rentals). What would you buy?

    I bought the Nexus 7 for my 11yr old son for his birthday... he was thrilled and it looks great to me. Neither of us has played with a 10" tablet so this one is nice for us.

    It might be worth it to wait for the Microsoft Surface

    The movie rentals dont work because you need to be in USA ( copyright or something )

    It is the same for Ipad

    Just wait for a month.Its expected that iPad Mini will be launched on September 12.

    BTW,if you want a 9"~10" tablet,go for iPad.There's no competition to apps which it has.

    I had an Asus EEE and its a great tablet but I needed 3g so brought an Ipad, you really can't beat it either, its really well built (must be the kids little fingers managing to put it together quite tight)

    Chinese sources claim that the miniature iPad will be priced at around $250-$300 (£156-£187 respectively).

    How about Dell Streak 7? 7 inches screen not so big but the prize not too high.

    As much as have gone off Apple and their employee abuses etc ....The best tablet is the iPad. I've tried a few others and they are fine but nothing is as smooth and simple to use as an iPad.

    I got a cheapy Chinese android for about £50 and while it was mostly crap, for £50 it was pretty useful.

    Yes agree Ipads are awesome - In fact after getting one I find myself being away from both the desktop and laptop much more, Maybe reply to my emails,posts etc more frequently but the overall time spent online is much less - Well less for work related things anyway.

    You can buy many tablets for £50 but you really cant compare them to an ipad - for one I believe in what you pay for and the ipad is like 8 x more expensive :)
