 hi Brett

 i know that there are alot of tablets on the market right now but a 10" screen in that price range with any memory will be tough. i would look at the blackberry playbook( i know not alot of people dont like blackberry!). you can still pick up a 7.5" screen with 64gb of memory new in box between 135 and 155 on amazon. 1. it has the best security in place over android and iOS. 2. it offers alot of games. 3. it is easy to set up and connect. 4. its has great graphics and screen display. 5. if it doesn't work out you made a mininum investment. 6. i have yet to see how tablets are going to be legitament computing tools. 6. it comes with Docs to go that work well with microsoft office. 7. if your son does not use it you may find a use for it yourself.

Check your local carrier to see if they have any promotions. That's how I got a Samsung Galaxy 8.9 for 50 bucks.

$150.00 for a 10 inch is not going to get you very much or anything that will last. Thats even pretty low for a decent quality performing 7 inch.

Take a look here so you have a better idea of what you're looking at to spend for 10 inch or even 7 inch: Engadget's tablet buyer's guide: fall 2013 edition

By no means is the guide definitive. But it at least gives you a broader idea of price ranges and models.

Only has 8GB onboard, instead of a usual 16 or 32 part of which is the OS and preloaded apps. So you have very little room to download more apps and games. Plus the SD Card slot only supports 32 GB not the usual max of 64 GB. Also some apps you download do not work if moved to the SD card. It's a serviceable machine but limited in what it can do. The 8 inch by same vendor has decent reviews on Amazon, none yet for this one. But nearly all are prefaced that you are getting what you pay for. Do not expect a high performance high storage device and work within it's limitations and it should be okay.
