    Hi Louie,

    Thanks for the info.

    I am planning to buy 7-inch tablet some of the considerations I have are:

    1. Cost (12K or less)
    2. Performance (ideal for HD/high graphics/ 3D games)
    3. Functionality (connection to TV, USB support, dual camera, sd card support)
    3. Quality and durability

    Nexus 7 is one of the best option but its luck of functionality (no hdmi, no rear camera, no USB support, no sd card) is forcing me to look for other choices.

    It seems that Archos Cobalt and Novo 7 Flame are the ideal alternatives for me. But I am having trouble of choosing between the 2, so I would like to ask you and the other readers’s opinion on this. Which of the 2 will you recommend (Novo Flame 7 or Archos Cobalt 80?) and why?

    Archos seems good but Novo’s specs are far better. But I am not sure of Novo’s (China) quality compared to Archos (France).

    Thank you in advance for your advise.
