3 Great E-Reader Tablets Under $200

12 Nov

ereadersE-books are becoming more and more popular as people discover the convenience of buying a book from their home and reading it immediately. As technology improves, the e-readers have also become more sophisticated, and more importantly, cheaper. The benefits of a tablet are that you can do more than just read e-books; you can also check email, surf the web, play games, and a lot more.

You can now buy an e-reader tablet for less than $200. Less than 10 years ago, you’d spend almost $200 on a dedicated e-reader, that didn’t have email, internet or game functionality. What gives you the best value for your money?

Here’s a list of e-reader tablets under $200 taken from TabletNinja’s tablet review guide to tablets under $200:

1.  Amazon Kindle Fire (price: $159): Amazon is the big fish in the pond. They have the digital infrastructure, with hundreds of thousands of e-books to choose from, backing up their tablet. Aside from e-books, this tablet will let you play games, watch TV shows and movies, play games and a lot of other cool stuff. The Kindle Fire isn’t the most sophisticated tablet on the market, but if you’re looking for a good tablet that excels at multi-media, then this might be a tablet worth taking a closer look at.

2.  Barnes & Noble Nook HD (price: $129): Barnes & Noble has left the tablet computer game, but this is great news for bargain hunters, as you can get their Nook HD tablet for a cool $129. This device sports a great e-reading feature, which takes advantage of Barnes & Noble’s 3 million e-books in their library. And if you run out of room from all those e-books, movies and games you have downloaded, you can use a MicroSD card to give your device added memory.

3.  Google Nexus 7 (price: varies): The Google Nexus 7 is a little pricier than the above tablets, coming in right around $200. However, if you shop around online you can definitely find them well below the $200 price point. The Nexus 7 runs on Android and has a massive library of e-books available via Google Play. Like the other tablets, the Nexus 7 is much more than just an e-book reader.

The above are just a sample of e-reader tablets under $200 that you can buy. If you’re looking just to read e-books, you can find a dedicated e-reader for between $50-$100. Like all technology-related products, the price continues to drop year after year and you will get a better device while paying less money and can keep you entertained for hours on end with all of its features.

School Tablets Under $200

11 Nov

Tablets are a good option for school because of their long battery life and small size. Whether used as a supplement to or a replacement for a standard laptop, they can be very effective in academic settings as well as providing some useful functions to make dorm life (or life at home for younger students) more entertaining. Many of these devices can also be used with a stylus which some students find easier than banging away on a keyboard in class. This review looks at the three best tablets for school under $200.Coming in at just under $150, is the Coby MID8065. While it is a little bulkier than most of the higher priced models out there, its main attraction is an 8 inch screen (1024×768 resolution), larger than most of the tablets at this price. The 8 GB of included memory can be expanded using the included SD card slot and the front and rear facing cameras, though of relatively low quality (0.3 MP and 2 MP, respectively), should make Skyping home a snap.

One small drawback is that this machine comes with an older version of the Android OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) but at least it’s Google certified and an upgrade should be available at some point in the future.Another machine that offers more value for a little more money is the Google Nexus 7. The original set the bar for budget tablets and the 8 GB model, at $199 dollars, is still one of the best deals out there. One of its best features is that because it is a Google branded product it is easily upgraded to the latest version of Android. Unfortunately, this 7” machine doesn’t come with an SD card reader so it is limited in terms of memory. The Asus Memo Pad HD7 is probably the best value of its kind on the market. This sleek and well designed 7” Android tablet is a dream come true for stylus users and has built in applications that make it easy for students to take notes in class. The 1280×800 screen is among the best out there and it has a built in utility that allows users to adjust colors and contrast depending on light conditions.

The Memo Pad HD7 also has 10 hours of battery life, 8GB of memory (expandable with the SD card slot) and decent front (1.2 MP) and back (5 MP) cameras all for around $150. The only problem with this device is that because it is heavily skinned (meaning the manufacturer has made changes to the operating system) it might be take somewhat longer to get upgrades but considering the amazing apps that come built in, this is an easy tradeoff. There are other option for tablets under $200 including the Highsense Sero 7 Pro which is sold exclusively through Walmart and is similar to the Coby MID8065 (without the benefit of an 8” screen) and the Barnes and Noble Nook HD which wasn’t included because it’s being taken off the market but is still a good value at $199.
