I have been asked to choose a cheap tablet to buy for Skype video calling. The person who will use it isn't going to do anything fancy else, just videocalling her daughter at evening.
I have seen products like Mediacom's SmartPad 706i featuring:
- 512MB of RAM
- 1GHz single-core CPU
I wonder if these are good for smooth calling, considering that no other applications are supposed to run meanwhile.
I'm not asking, as per policy, for a recommendation on which product to buy. What hardware characteristics are most important for video calling using Skype?
