Android is a great, open, free platform. Sadly, the hardware that powers it can’t be free, and comes at a variety of different prices. Does price influence your decision largely? If there was a good device for $200, but a GREAT one for $500, which would you choose? (Interpret “good” and “great” as you wish)
As owner of Dollar Tech Check and as a long-time tech enthusiast, budget has always been a large concern to me. I’ll spend the full price for phones, but I can’t justify spending over $350 on a tablet.
