With everyone and their dog looking to get into the tablet market lately, and every consumer and their dog wanting one for themselves, it can be a little bit overwhelming when taking in the sheer volume of choice. Everyone knows the iPad, but past that (and its off-putting price), what comes next? Do you have to spend hundreds and hundreds of euros to get a good tablet? Absolutely not, dear reader, so read on! Here are our three picks for those on the hunt for a good tablet, without having to empty the bank account to get it.
1. Tesco Hudl 2
For around €165, the supermarket chain has got something truly special. The Hudl has a big (8.3 inches), bright (super HD!) display, a super-fast processor, Dolby optimised sound, 2GB of RAM and a micro-SD slot to upgrade your memory, as well as a mini-HDMI connector for outputting to your TV.
2. Kindle Fire HD 6
While it is sometimes confused as just being something to read your books on, the Kindle Fire is also a primo tablet, with a quad-core processor, HD display, front-and-rear cameras and 8 or 16Gb storage on board. And the best part? It’s only €99!
3. Nexus 7
For around €250, you can get this beauty, with its wireless charging abilities, super bright and hi-def display, 5 megapixel camera and top of the range processing power. This is about as high-end as you can get, without having to pay the high-end prices.
