Tablet PC advice..
« on: July 23, 2013, 10:17:51 AM »

Chaps, I need a tablet pc with two basic criteria...


I need one with a 10" screen...and I need to be able to Google Chat on it.


Oh, and it needs to have WiFi installed.


I bought an iPad (big mistake) I can get Gmail on it, but it won't let me use chat with my contacts.


Any recommendations/advice gratefully received.

The wife uses Chat for google talk on her iPad, its a free app in the app store

All I can say is stay away from the cheap unbranded chinese ones found on ebay and such
