MAx No doubt it is cheaper, But I am considering a Tab with atleast 800 Mhz or above since, Low speed of processor means lesses applications and OS version wll also be dated.I have handled Samsung Tab 10.1 & Original Tab as wellThe difference are stunning Even though Both run 1 Ghz processor, 10.1 is quite faster, along with the fact that Screen is absolutely beautifull, More vivid colors and Its also slim profile, and surprisingly No hardware buttons for 10.1. Max have you used Aakash tba yet ?

If uyou want a real multimedia experience then i would reccodment anything above 800 Mhz cause at 300 Mhz you will not be able to see the proper video without lagging, If you really want to buy try Archos or creative they are cheap and has 1Ghz speed of processor

When considering any tablet, there are more things you need to consider apart from just the processor speed and availability of calling feature. Other important aspects to me would be - the OS it is running now, the screen type - capacitive/resistive and battery life. Most feature enhancements on smart phones and tablets these days come via the OS (upgrades). So it is important that your device should be able to support at least the next couple of iterations of the OS. When it comes to the screen capacitive is the way to go. Resistive screens don't offer the fluid user experience that we have so gotten used to. Battery life is important as the tablet is a portable device and it will determine how soon you will be hunting for a plug point to recharge your device. But the most important question to ask yourself before buying/considering a tablet (or any device for that matter) is - Why do you need a tablet? Once you have answered that it should be easy to narrow it down to the feature list that is must have.

capacitive is only way these days rather than resistive, thats for sure, You are very right in saying the enhancement will only be through OS upgrade ( mostly) hence OS is very imp. I suppose 5400 mAh is enough for a day of heavy use for tablet. WEll yes every one has to ask why they need a tablet ? for me personally its going to be an extension, I could have done my work right now while on route to home instead I am stuck here, then there is music & connectivity ( which is most important for me as of today) whats you excuse Garfield ?? ( other than it can show pictures of food ;) got it ??? )

Only the processor speed is not all encompassing, the kind of processor makes a lot of difference. For example the Acer Iconia has a dual core tegra 1 ghz processor while the deall streak has a first generation single core snapdragon qsd8250 processor. the processor on iconia is way way better.You need to decide whether calling feature is a deal-breaker. Because if it is, you don't have a lot of options.
