8'' Fits into a handbag or back pack pocket ....... M15 will confirm,. I need a travel device, no games, maybe occasional film to squint nerd

Re: Wanted - Tablet for travel , minimal usage

You'll need to check the cover fits the tablet but other than that a SIM card and a charger, you won't have to have anything else.

PAYG is ideal but which tariff depends on your usage.

The Sony Experia Compact is out of the box and charging.  It has a nifty charger cover which I missed to begin with !       Any one have a Dummies guide to Tablets I can borrow  : - ))

Im looking at the sim choices    321 looks ok. )?) Now we have the prospect of tiny paws travel abroad might be limited to  once a year now for a while.   Im guessing 02 has an app or something on a lappy to check data usage to weigh up expenses.
