    Curry's are selling the 64gb one for about £90. Seems cheaper than other places, given that you get what you pay for, are they any good?

    wife and 3 kids all have cheapo tablet which comprise of Nook HD(rooted running 4.2.2) 2 x Kobo Arc 7s and a HP Slate 7... Nook HD is clear winner in both the real world and Antutu/3Dmark tests..

    the Kobo's are decent enough, kids play Angry Birds Go, Lego City My City, CoDZombies no problem and all the streaming Netflix etc.. is great.. the HP Slate 7 is again okay, very strange ratio though as the screens short edge is a cm shorter yet the all measure 7" on the diagonal..

    seeing as you can get the Nook HD cheaper, its better and it has SD slot that is the one I would go for if you are okay with rooting and CFW, its dead easy though one of the easiest tablets to do.. as stock it runs fine has full Play access and you can just put a different launcher on if you wish.. but its better to CFW.
