    Hi there, I'm looking to purchase my 1st Android Tablet. There are soooo many to chose from.
    Are the Chinese ones any good?
    After some reading up, the spec I want it Cortex dual A8 or A9 with a Quad Mali400.
    1gb Ram
    16gb+ HDD
    Android 4.0ICS or 4.1Jelly
    Bluetooth (not essential)
    3G compatible

    The work I'll be doing will be Displaying photos for potential customers so I want a really good quality screen/display. I will be doing the usual emailing/web browsing, some spreadsheets and if my kids get hold of it probably some gaming but nothing too adventurous.

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    The issue is that as soon as reviews are written for a tablet a new model is available. What you really need to do is set a budget then get the best you can for that budget. The type of spec you are looking at though probably limits it to the major names like Samsung/Asus/Google. Cheap Chinese ones are cheap for a reason and that is usually because of screen quality. If you are doing spreadsheet work then you really need a bluetooth keyboard.

    The spreadsheets aren't going to used much on it, the main role for the tablet will be displaying photos to prospective buyers.
    The Ainol Hero 10 looks like it has the right spec, does anyone have any experience of this? What's it like on the web on wifi?

    thanks
