Samsung Galaxy Tab A

Ask Adrian: Our tech editor tackles your trickiest technology problems 

Q I am looking for advice on purchasing an entry level tablet. I do not wish to purchase an Apple product, as I would prefer an Android at a lower price. I would use the tablet on holiday as a Kindle-type device and would use it for email, internet and viewing sports or films. I would like a keyboard facility as I would use Word regularly. Looking online, the advice is UK and USA based and quite confusing. All assistance and Irish-based suppliers gratefully received.
