    Hi,
    Recently my Asus Fonepad 7 used by my parents went dead and i am looking for a good replacement. Here are the basic things that come to my mind

    1) Budget - 10 to 13 K Max
    2) Display - 8 Inch and above
    3) Memory - 2 Gb or above
    4) Has To be very user friendly as being used mainly by my parents.

    Any other things to look for are always welcome!

    It had some good reviews sometime back. Recently, Samsung launched 3 or 4 new models. They were priced near 20 -25K though.

    Lenovo is very bad on updates. Still stuck with Gingerbread on a couple of them.

    @jackal_79 , you may try for Huawei media pad Mate or T3 10" series if your budget permits you.
    But they are not yet available in India.
    If you are comfortable with Gearbest,Banggood or Aliexpress sites,you might give it a try.
    PRIMARY IS YOUR BUDGET, again If that Permits.

    By the way, @meetdilip , how many Tabs do you have with you? Just a curiosity,Friend.

    I have never used iOS. Neither have my parents. If at all I end up buying it will that be an issue. As mentioned earlier, this will be used mainly by my parents

    WhatsApp will work if you have a tablet with a SIM slot, in most Android models.

    I doubt it. WiFi only versions may not help. WhatsApp looks for active SIM before accepting usage. Most probably, Play Store will say " not available for this device ".
