Well, if you are so concerned about spending, why not avoid a tablet unless you feel you really need it. Also, not sure avoid possibility of getting it, but my current suggestion would be Nexus 7 from Asus/Google.

Nexus 7 is a good Tablet but it is not available in India, that's the minus point, or else I would have immediately bought it.

In that case, in that range for Android, I think this looks ok. Ofcourse, I am not even looking at brands like Micromax, Karbonn etc.

Dont buy the Tablet for the following reasons.1. The tablet market is just hotting up.Tabs are going to be cheaper.2. I own a Galaxy Tab P6800 (7.7), bought at 35k. Samsung has some pathetic drivers for the tab. Cant connect the tab in "Mass storage mode", only samsung drivers work. I cant transfer mkv videos and certain videos to my tab. As a turn around, copy those to USB drive and copy back to the tab from USB. Airdroid is not helpful in this matter. For the past few days, KIES does not even detect my tab, hence unable to upgrade to ICS.3. There is no app in Android market to access facebook (other than facebook official app which is pathetic). For Twitter only Tweetcaster works. Other apps are for phone only, not properly visible in the tab resolution.4. Dont expect support from Samsung, you are never sure whether u will get updates to the OS.5. Touch Wiz is pathetic, my Tab is dual Core 1.4 Ghz. It slows down thanks to Samsung.6. No custom ROMs available as yet in the market!

As of now in Android, Nexus is the best. Its great value for money (infact more than that).If apps are the one you are looking for, iPad is the only option.If its just browsing, any Tab works :)Once Apple repleased ipad 7 inches, amazon releases its various versions of Kindle, all the prices of tablets will be within reach!

Yup, thats why I also said Nexus. But I was keeping only Android as the choice. There is also Playbook to consider.
