I badly wanted a tablet for fulfilling my social networking and net surfing needs while on the bed or on couch. The priorities were simple, a tablet with Android running in it, it should work on Wi-Fi, no need of a cam, good display and battery life, no Chinese thingy, oh and yes it had to be cheap too. So began the search for a tab that had to meet these conditions. Begorra, the net was surfed to its entirety, friends were consulted, re-consulted and called at odd timings, forums combed and after much tweeting and Facebooking, a dear friend told me to go for the Kindle Fire (Basic version). Lucky was I to get it at a throw away price.
