Hi! I've been interested in buying a mobile device. I first looked into buying a smartphone. It's not practical, since I have a small circle of friends. So getting a nice smartphone with a cellular contract is a no go. I then became interested in the Samsung Player. I can only find it on ebay for at least 129. That's not including custom's fees, since i live in Canada. A few days ago I was watching CTV news and they announced that the Kindle fire is on preorder for 149$. I can find a 2012 Nexus device for 120-180 on kijiji in Ottawa. There are also android tablets that are super cheap on ebay, but I'm not sure if it's going to be fast enough for me to be comfortable with. I say this because I tried a hipstreet tablet my neighbor purchased, and well... it's garbage.
What I want from a tablet is to have a responsive experience for watching stuff on youtube and reading news and or ebooks.
