    Looking for a high spec, large screen android tablet

    Hi

    Looking for a branded android tablet for my sister as a gift.

    She is visually impaired so would need a screen size of 10 inch or above.

    Have a big budget, £500+ so want something awesome for the price.
    Need a keyboard with it as well.

    Any suggestions?
    Need to buy this week.

    Hi, I do not have one for sale,Google Pixel c Tablet
    But this is a tablet perfect for your sister.
    I have one for my Son, and one for me.
    They are not cheap, but the quality is excellent.
    Great size too.
    Just thought I would say, sorry if not the one you are after.
    Kind Regards Paul

    There haven't been many top end android tablets released recently. The aforementioned Google Pixel c and probably the Samsung galaxy tab s2 are the most recent I can think of.

    Yeah these are the 2 that I've come across.
    Keyboard for the pixel c is £119, quite pricey just for a keyboard.

    It's android tablet vs iPad.
    I've always found Apple products to be quite restrictive.
    But which is better value for money?

    How about something like this? Big screen. Touchscreen and windows too.

    I did want to get a laptop/hybrid but she needs something simple and some of the main apps she uses are not available on Windows unfortunately.

    Acer Iconia W510-27602G03 10.1" Tablet With Keyboard Intel Atom 32GB, Tesco Outlet, 12 months warranty, £119, had a few refurbs all been brand new. Just noticed its windows.

    Google do good screens - that's the main reason I got my Nexus 10 - it had the highest screen resolution at the time.

    It's about three years old now and still going strong. Although battery could be better, it's usually certain apps that drain it.
