If you're on search for an affordable tablet but dont want to compromise quality and brand support, you might want to check out Asus MemoPad.
This Php 6,995 slate is powered by the latest iteration of Android software - Jelly Bean. And it being an Asus-manufactured, you can have the same experience as the Nexus 7 in both design and experience. But ofcourse, you wont expect this device to be as powerful as the the Nexus since it is only powered by a 1GHz single-core VIA processor.
The 1GB RAM is also a good place to start to with this price, it's also a good thing that they beef up the memory in that department. Downside, however, is the 8GB on-board memory but I think it'll not be an issue since you can expand this tablet via microSD card. Asus is sticking with the thought of "no snapping with tablets" because of the fact that this unit doesn't have rear camera, the 1MP front camera, though, is capable for video calling.
Dont expect much with this tablet in this price point, I think Asus is pegging this to educational purposes like ebooks and presentations. So if you're interested, it's now available via online stores. It might hit you local stalls later this month or early March.
