    Hey guys. My mom'sfamily friend's kids are completely spoiled, and also really demanding. They're asking for a tablet.
    Tell me the cheapest tablet with not that much features on it, just a small app store with crappy apps, a awful web browser etc. Please tell me a good one with these features, these kids are annoying the heck out of me, so i'll select the tablet for them, would this tablet be available at best buy? They wouldn't be needing a high advanced tablet with good features. I have nothing to do about this, and my mom's family friend is forcing me to look for one. Most importantly because my sister works at bestbuy, and she'll get employee discount. If it aint available at bestbuy, it alright, ill look on other places.
    Please and thanks!

    Do you have a Big Lots in your area? They have some tablets that are like 50 or 60 bucks, they have like 512MB's of RAM run Android 4.0 or something. Make sure to get the Polaroid one... It's half decent but crappier than anything they sell at Best Buy.

    You can check them out yourself, some of them cost a bit more but are less craptacular... lol

    SOMEONE is familiar with my work. My work being I take the bullet for you guys...

    Yes, the 4 inch Polaroid mini tablet is oddly awesome. You can download GetJar to it to act as a bare bones market, though why are you looking for a crappy one?

    It is for spoiled 6 year olds. They don't deserve a good one. A cheap tablet, with not a good browser, a bit features that are essential, would be good.

    Get the Coby Kyros MID7014. It's a utter piece of shit. Even a toaster serves more of a purpose than this tablet ever will.

    And I know this because I spent $110 on it. And I regret it so very much.

    Lovely, this will be the best tablet for them :D Found it on bestbuy, and those kids will regret forcing their motherly mom to get her to buy shit for em XD
    The reviews were completely great. They said it is a awful piece of shit, not worth the money. WOOT!

    If you're lucky you might get it on sale. The same store I got it for $110 from is now selling it for $40. It:

    1. Lags
    2. Has GetJar
    3. Lags more
    4. Runs Gingerbread Android and CANNOT be upgraded
    5. Has a shitty speaker on the back of the unit
    6. Has shitty battery life
    7. Can't run Angry Birds without dying
    8. Lags even more
    9. Cannot run the Google Play Store or Skype without crashing

    Seeing as you live in Canada, I got mine at Giant Tiger. Check my edit above. If you're lucky, you may find it on eBay for cheap.

    I second that, but with the 7" Pandigital Novel (white). A used 360 controller shell serves more purpose than this thing.

    And I know this because I spent $114 on it. And I regret it so very much.

    Craig tablet Model CMP741E from CVS (also available at Rite-Aid I believe.) I got it for $80 and it absolutely sucks dog balls. GetJar, Slide Me Market, brightest setting = my Note2's dimmest setting, horrible battery life, Flow Free crashed (seriously,) etc, etc, etc.
