Found 6th Sep 2010
Hi, I have an older relative who "doesn't get on with laptops or pc's" coz of the /touch pad/mouse! He was asking me about an iPad as he seen the ad's on tv and thinks he could get on ok with a touch screen.
Problem is that he only wants it for internet to "look things up that he wants to know when he wants to know them". So absolutely no email, music, pics, vids etc. I told him the cost of the cheapest iPad and he almost wet but that aside, an iPad would obviously be overkill for his very basic needs.
A smart phone screen would be too small for him and again expensive for his needs.
Wondering if anyone had any suggestions about cheaper Tablets I see posted here on Deals sometimes.
Would need to have a reasonable size screen, internet connection is no problem as house has broadband.

Any suggestions appreciated...tnx

although expensive, the iPad seems right up his street.

or if he can wait till the end of the year some android tablets are going to come out that would be cheaper.

I think there are some archos ones out now.
