Take a look at the Archos Fans website http://archosfans.com/

I own a couple of Archos tablets. They are well made and well supported.

Shopping around might save you 15-20% off the price offered by QVC http://www.expansys.com/archos-101-g9-android-tablet-16gb-wifi-optional-3g-219655/?utmsource=google&utmmedium=shopping&utmcampaign=base&ito=1701&mkwid=svHjLhmZB&kword=adwordsproductfeed&gclid=CNiZ2I258K8CFQwjfAodPy7KYQ

Look at the reviews in your link. Note that of the 49 reviews, 22 are 1 star, then think about buying it again.

My partner bought an earlier model. Within a few weeks, of very light use, the charger had to be replaced, then the tablet itself. When it was working it was slow, the resistive touch screen was very unresponsive and the display was dim, dull and had very poor viewing angles. Soon after receiving the replacement tablet, it was up on eBay.

If you must buy one, Amazon will sell you it for under £190 with free postage.

Sorry, I'm not. Big monitor, a mouse and a full size keyboard are what I like to use. Tablets don't do it for me.
