    Any recommendations for a sub $200 Droid tablet for my kids? I've seen a few < $100 tablets on Amazon but the reviews are horrible.
    It should be able to stream Netflix, do the usual app thing, no camera necessary.

    Kindle Fire?

    Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I highly reccommend a herotab C8, although I'm not sure if it could stream netflix out of the box. I know I had mine streaming netflix, but it was rooted before that...
    easy to find on Amazon or google shopping.

    Looks like a decent solution. It would need to stream netflix.

    Why do some tablets have an issue downloading some apparently from the market?

    Someone posted an Alvin and the Chipmunks edition tablet running Android for kids. I think it was $130 or so.

    You might want to hold off later this month to see if the Asus/Google Tablet hits that price mark for you.
