I'm overwhelmed from reading posts, spec, reviews etc...I'm looking for a 7" tablet for under $150 for my husband. He's a paramedic so a 7" for basic use- few games, internet browsing, calendar etc might be something he could use during downtime (has a laptop but not practical to haul around)
Thanks for any guidance!
Why a 149.99 budget?There isn't much value and quality for that price. Up your budget to 200-350 and the Fire, Nook Color, and Transformer are good buys.

Ditto on the Nook Color. It is nice to see the price drop to $129 for the refurb. I bought one from the ebay/Barns&Noble deal a couple weeks ago for $119, but the $129 price is still solid. The shipping was free but you will likely be charged tax.
To reiterate, this is not a full Android experience. It is a great reader and has some basic apps, but the B&N app store is a complete joke. Unless you are pretty tech savy, you can just buy a pre-rooted microSD card off of ebay for cheap. I just bought a 16GB version for $40, but you can also get just a 8GB version for only $25. Pretty much just pop in the card and go. It gives an option to boot off the card into full Android Gingerbread OS 2.3.7 or just straight into the stock Nook.
