You haven't mentioned a screen size so based on expandable storage I think Acer A110. However this doesn't have the sim slot, sorry.

I would have suggested a Nexus 7 but it doesn't have 3G or expandable storage.. :/ You won't get much for that price.

We have seen [url="http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=289;16;-1;-1;-1&sku=228857"]this one[/url] at HMV, but would like more choices if there are any. Expansion isn't as important as having a SIM card slot.

A second hand original Galaxy Tab maybe? You're not going to get a good 3G enabled tablet for 200.

I'd wait until early Nov. after the launch of Surface/Windows 8. You'll have a huge selection to pick from. The new models will force the prices down on the older stuff too.
