    Is there ANY Chinese tablet that works with Skype VIDEO chat over wifi?

      Yep there are a few, but I would say either a Visture or Lenovo are your best bet

    Hey there Andi,

    Thanks for the tip.
    I “taobao’ed” both Visture and Lenovo and they are 1500+ RMB

    Since the tablet is for my dad, I am looking for something 700-1000 RMB… do you have any suggestions?
    I just need that Skype VIDEO CHAT works, LOL.

    Many thanks!
