Should have put "Certified" in the title. Bunch of people will click on this thinking it's an actual Google-branded tablet. Thumbs down for you, will go back to neutral after title change (if I think to check).

Thumbs down for you, will go back to neutral after title change (if I think to check). I hope I never cross you, FreeFlyer. I got nervous and peed a little just thinking about what might happen if I posted something you didn't like.
OP: I gave you green-- not because I think the deal is that great, but because FreeFlyer apparently hadn't "thought to check". I will go back to neutral once he checks back (if I think to check).
b) Nextbook model for $99.99, Google certified, Ice Cream Sandwich. On sale starting Saturday, in next week's flyer.
Edit: Proscan PLT7044K can be rooted to add Google Play: http://androidforums.com/klu-lt7033-all-things-root/668887-step-... (scroll down). The Efun Nextbook next7p12-gp seems to be selling for around $100 on Amazon so it doesn't seem to be much of a deal at BigLots. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009YCJOKW/. There are official firmware updates available for the next7p12 models, and I suspect if you buy a non-GP model the firmware update will add Google Play. Based on everything I've seen, the Proscan is the better buy, based on processor speed, supplied case/keyboard, and lower price. If you want Google Play and are not comfortable rooting the Proscan, the Nextbook might be a better option.

I've got the Poloroid 8" from Kohls ($41) and some 7" from OfficeMax that I paid $69.99 for. Both are good little entertainment boxes. The number of hours that they've kept my kids amused, allowed for light surfing, email checking, texting with free apps and what not makes them a great deal! Yes there are cheap ones out there (resistive touch, Android 2.2 etc), but pick any of these and use the to the best of their ability. Know what you're getting and what the limitations are. Heck, I can drop $15 or so just for a 2 hour movie 1 time. These have more than paid for themselves.

Oxymoron of the day alert. No such thing. Just saying.When the Canon ELPH 110 HS (ASIN: B006UMM1UO) hit $99 on AMZN back in Nov 2012. That was an inexpensive, high quality gadget. So I bought it. It's normally $129-$139 and hasn't gone down to $99 since Nov.
But again, that's subjective. Some might think $99 for a highly rated digital camera is expensive.
