Followup to this- I just ordered a couple of Kindles. The Mi Pads look nicer, but they're twice the cost and I'm after largely disposable tablets where I don't care if they get stepped on. Ditto anything from Huawei or Lenovo. And I couldn't be bothered trawling the computer centres for dodgy generics.
do they have to all be the same from a support perspective?
I had a nexus 7 lying around but looks like you're good
