    Does it have GPS ?

    Daughter is looking for one but I'm not sure if this has GPS and it's so useful.

    It's presumably the same set-up as the 7 inch version which we have. Excellent GPS.

    Half watching/listening to TV the other night, heard an advert 'buy someone a tablet for Christmas'

    For a few seconds I thought - what a strange advert - (Holland and Barrett ?)

    - I'm getting too old !

    Just heard from her, she bought an Asus before I could tell her about this. They are virtually identical from reading the specs.

    Bought a 7 inch one from Tesco for £158 with an additional £30 cashback after 15 days. Mainly to be used when touring abroad to keep in touch with family on SKYPE.:Smile:

    I have just purchased a Samsung Note 2, 10.1 for £228 including a two year warranty. Very nice bit of kit at what I thought was a good price.:Wink:

    Does it do Skype ?

    Skype is a bit hit and miss on Android because Skype is owned by Microsoft who isn't Android's best mate.
