cheap tablets are getting better?

http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/cheap-computing/a-69-android-tablet-thats-worth-buying/

is clearly an example of Asean efforts to do things a little better than I’ve experienced up to now with a diversity of cheap android clones popping up all over the place.

I’m currently using a relatively “cheap” (US$ 270 – landed) no-name brand 10.1 inch tablet running Android 4.ish.  I’ve replaced the first one already –  screen unresponsive to touch, and the second one I’m using now needed a reset and complete charge to start behaving OK – so far.   I must admit that the iPad has made me quite critical of tablet capabilities.  But I’m willing to try more of these clones in an attempt to come up with the right price model for an un-electrified school library scenario.
