    Jazz Android tablet

    Hi there

    After purchasing 12 Fizzbooks which haven't lived up to expectations (too slow) - we are now looking for tablets for pupils to use - mainly Internet use (so we need Flash support).

    I have priced up Blackberry Playbooks, which don't look bad but I just wondered if anyone had heard of the Jazz tablet? It only costs around 75 - but obviously I don't want us to get stuck with another set of duds!!

    Anyone know anything about this product?

    Ta

    Are you talking about the Jazz C725?

    I've never even heard of it... That model number is all I can find on google. No reviews or anything.

    Plus, EVERY website that mentions it has the EXACT same image of it.


    TBH, I'm starting to think it doesn't actually exists.

    Yes that's the one I mean. I know, I'm having trouble finding any info.

    Maybe, Playbooks are a safer option!!

    What about Google Nexus 7s? They are decently priced and meant to be very good.

    I can vouch for the Nexus 7, excellent piece of kit and great price.

    If it's not an urgent purchase though, you may want to wait until Christmas and see if the rumoured 99 Nexus tablet actually gets released... Asus have publicly denied it but you never know.

    EDIT: wanted to add, my recommendation is based on personal use, couldn't comment on school use.

    Another vote for spending the extra on a Nexus. Nothing come close to it for value for money.

    We decided against iPads when looking about a year ago as they didn't support Flash and we couldn't use Education City. Anyone know which tablets can now access this?

    Isn't Flash back in the Play store now? https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...FzaHBsYXllciJd - no Jelly Bean though.

    Huge number of tablets out there stuck on Honeycomb and ICS though, might be useful in those cases.

    Flash does work on Jelly Bean tablets if you side-load the Flash Player APK and use a different browser (Dolphin Browser HD v8.5.1).

    That's what I use on my Nexus 7 when I am forced to use Flash.

    The other rumour seems more credible - a 32GB Nexus 7 for 199/$250.
