    Need to buy at least 2 of them, and need them primarily for video chat/skype with the family over there in India.

    Requirements

    - Affordable
    - Good for video chat ( front camera should be decent )
    - Skype should run well
    - Need to buy 2, so price is a constraint
    - Good battery backup
    - Will be used over a Wi-Fi connection only.


    I was thinking 2xiPad 2nd Generation, but they are still 20,000 INR each. Looking for something cheaper.

    Suggest away please!

    The 16 GB WiFi Model costs only $229

    32 GB WiFi Model - $259

    Highest PPI screen amongst all Tablets.

    Super Smooth with and Flagship Performance.

    The Tab 2 is a shitty tablet .. horribly slow Samsung UI and quite outdated hardware.

    Nexus 7 (2013) is the current best-in-league tablet in the Market and will be for a long time because no other company can offer a price which competes with Google.

    This is hands-down your best bet, Future proof Hardware & Software.

    You really should get a Nexus device to get the true feel & power of Android.


    Also, regarding Skype Video -

    Samsung Tab 2 has a Front VGA Camera vs 1.2 MP Camera on the Nexus 7

    Comparo: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 P3100 vs. Asus Google Nexus 7 (2013) - GSMArena.com
