I know, I know... 6 months ago I would have berated me for asking this - you get what you pay for...

Except I have seen a fair few

Looks ok, but if you want to get something a bit better then look here

http://www.androidinabox.com/android-tablets.html?t_dualcore=238&t_market=162&t_ram=39&t_size=42

I filtered it to show only official Google Play and 1Gb of RAM

This one cost wise is the closest and much better, spec wise

eBay it up and see if you can get it for a good price

Oooh, cheers. Thing is, there's a maplin around the corner so I could grab it in time for Christmas. But overall, you think it's suitable? Not annoyingly slow or such?

The 512MB of RAM and the single core is the killer, they kinda suck. :/

If you can get something a bit better at least 1GB of RAM then you're sitting pretty for a tablet.

I've never come across one which is particularly nice to use.

I would advise you try to find yourself a used Nexus 7 or Galaxy Tab 7 - the difference is night and day.

Take a look at these, http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/tabletpcs/tabletpcs/?o=1

Nova tech is a local supplier to me but they are also based in Reading, Cardiff and Bristol, they are very good at delivery speeds. I have bought my 8 year old son one of the 7" tablets, unfortunately it isn't available any more but there is a small 4.3" one there too.

I bought one of those for my Dad for Xmas

Implying this was last year? I am not expecting the world. Not expecting a Galaxy Tab spec LOL - but just so long as it's usable for a child really. Play music, read books, play angry birds, etc!

But yeah, not being cheap but was looking around the 60-70 quid mark purely because it's a second gift. Not looking at 100 quid...

For this Xmas, its currently wrapped under the tree !

The only thing I found and was not even a problem, Google Play does not come installed, you have to download it from a different market that comes with the tablet, pretty straight forward and only took a few minutes and a reboot

Plays HD video smoothly, games like Angry Birds run great, the homescreen UI is fast and smooth even with a live wallpaper, I was seriously impressed comparing it to my ASUS Transformer which was much more expensive

EDIT - If you can put up with this irritating guys voice, and repeating himself over and over, there is a pretty full review he does here
