Personally I'd pay the extra and purchase the Advent Vega from PC
World which is currently £239.99. Almost all the cheap tablets are
horrendously slow and have resistive touchscreens. The vega is
fantastic for the price and if you visit
http://www.myadventvega.co.uk/ you can update it to the latest version
of the OS with flash support. http://vega.modaco.com/ is a good
resource for this tablet too.

Oh and it can even run Ubuntu if you like tinkering.
