I want something that has wiki, can play movies (high quality ones), use the internet, supports adobe flash player so i can Youtube or play flash games. Something around 250 is the highest I'm willing to pay.

depends on the tablet. Unfortunatly, all android based tablets no longer support flash, so you would need a windows or apple tablet.

Late but relevant.

Not all Android tablets are affected. Anything Ice Cream Sandwich and newer do not and will not support Flash. Gingerbread or Honeycomb can and do still run Flash. However with that said, Flash is no longer officially supported by Adobe on Android. Adobe will offer security updates but not through Google Play.

Hi,

doesn't Apple also boycott flash? I wouldn't think an ipad is an option if you want to be able to play flash games.
EDIT to add: Win8 also only offers "limited flash support".

I have a Blackberry Playbook and have no problems at all with Adobe flash content. My tablet is the only one at my University that can access the Mastering Chemistry, Mastering Biology, Mastering Anatomy.... Websites that are Flash based for homework and quizzes. I also play all the Adobe Flash games at yahoo games (games.yahoo.com) without ANY problems!

I can't believe that this tablet has gone So unnoticed. I got mine a while ago, but you can find them for $130 NEW! And even cheaper on ebay.

I love mine and I highly recommend it. BlackBerry is constantly working to improve this tablet and they keep adding updates to make sure the Web browser can play the latest flash stuff.

I can even connect my Playbook to the TV (HDMI cable) and use my cell phone as a wireless bluetooth remote control! Hi-def streaming movies on my big screen. Awesome!

The processor is super fast and it has two cameras. Hardware is as good or better than the more expensive Kindle, Nexus Android, and iPads.

If you are willing to read instructions, you can even get your Playbook to sideload Android apps and run them as if your Playbook was an Android device.

It has TRUE multitasking, which means I can record my professor's lecture while I read the eBook and have my notes app ready to jot stuff down. The guy with the new iPad next to me can't believe it since he paid almost a thousand for his tablet and can't do that stuff. Look up a YouTube video about the playbook and you'll see how you can have everything open and running all at once. Totally awesome.

They've put a lot of thought into this tablet, and you can tell I love it. I think you'll like it too.

Definitely the best bang for your buck. You won't find anything less than $200 that even comes close to the PlayBook hardware specifications.

Good luck in your search!

By the way, here's an article from ZDNET confirming that the BlackBerry Playbook is currently the only tablet with full Adobe Flash capability because RIM (BlackBerry parent company ) has its own software team that writes code for their browser to make it work seamlessly with each new version of Adobe Flash.

Have a read:

PS: Windows Surface has some Flash support but Microsoft/Adobe have not dedicated a group of software developers to this task like RIM has.

Anyway... I think you have enough info to make your purchase decisions.
