    Internet tablet help please

    Everyone on here always helps me when I'm stuck so um hoping that this evening you will also be able to point me in the right direction.
    Before people start getting too techie this us for a 6 year old for his birthday in a few weeks.
    All I want is something which will play a couple of films, some music, can surf the net on wifi and something which hecan download a few free game apps. He drives me mad wanting to use my iPhone all the time and wants an iPad but obviously I don't really want to gomuch over £100. I was looking at an advent amico but can't find any reviews on it they all seem to talk about the vega instead! It alsodoesnt give me any straight forward advice.
    Thank you so much for all your help

    I know people will criticise this but i got my son one and have to say i was pretty impressed, especially as it has the resistive screen.

    It's out of stock on the site but if you have a store close to you, they may have one in stock (I asked at mine as they had the out of stock sign up but the guy said he knew there was one still in the stock room (sealed!))

    Thanks I'll have a look tomorrow. Is it easy to downloads apps on it? Are they free?I like the idea of a 10" screen instead of a 7" one

    Yeah as it's running android so you just download apps from the marketplace (which is already installed). Loads are free as well eg angry birds, connect 4 etc etc

    Hope you find one. The 10 inch screen is better and also it has a 1ghz processor so is faster than the 7 inch.

    That's sounds better, the amico isn't running the andriod apps by the look of it. Off to hunt one out I think. Thank you

    No - I was just checking them out as also interested in something similar for my son later in the year. I have a Firefox extension which flags up if another site has something cheaper, so when I was looking at it on play it flagged it was cheaper on amazon :-)

    Ooohhhh what a good idea. Do you have to pay for the extension? Do you have a link to it?
