    I'm still looking for a tablet that can:

    run android preferably latest
    has a USB 2 port
    has a HDMI port
    10" good glass
    SD card capable
    takes a dock with KB and extended battery life
    audio out
    decent memory and speed
    front and rear cameras
    will run skype or the like
    ?can load for Mandarin speaking individual with no English

    I love the iPad but no ports out.

    I guess my other option is a laptop but I'd like one with a touch screen.

    Thanks

    You might look at a few of the different Asus Transformer series.

    This is the Transformer Prime. You can even get the docking keyboard that also has an extra battery that will give you up to 18 hours of battery life. HDMI, SD slot, 8MP rear camera and 1.2MP front camera. It comes in both 32GB and 64GB version and of course as noted has the SD slot for more storage. Check the specs tab in the link above. You might also talk to Dallas. I believe he actually has a Transformer Prime.

    It basically is an Android tablet / laptop combo in one when you have the docking keyboard.

    I use the Asus Transformer T700. It is a Prime tablet and is full HD.

    No habla mandarin oranges. I don't like them.


    Great tablet though. I would def say go check it out.

    For the Chinese, I know my Nexus 7 has an app called Google Pinyin IME that is for Chinese input.


    Here is the description of the App.

    Google Pinyin IME - input Chinese using Pinyin, strokes, voice and handwriting.
    谷歌拼音输入法
    下载后请到 “设置”→“语言和键盘”中开启。
    The Google Pinyin IME is an input method optimized for Chinese character input.
    The IME offers a variety of methods for fast and easy input of Chinese characters, including:
    - 9 key input
    - Latin keyboard
    - Voice input
    - Handwriting input
    We currently support both simplified and traditional Chinese characters, as well as punctuation, emoticons, Latin characters and digits. Voice input is network-based in order to provide highly accurate matches.
    Note: To be used on your Android device, the IME must be enabled in "Settings" → "Language & keyboard settings".

    Not sure if this is what you were asking really, but it's a Google app. It doesn't cost anything. There is a Korean one too.

    Here is a list of several similar apps on Google Play.
