Hi @Lily, it would be hard to recommend any tablet other than a Nexus 7 in all honesty. For starters it's one of the cheapest tablets you can buy (starts at $229), has some of the best hardware available and is the most future-proof tablet you can get because it is Google's own and thus always gets the newest updates first. It also has no rubbish on it that a lot of other manufacturers stuff their tablets with, so you'll have plenty of space to fill it with your mum's preferred apps. It's super light, super fast and everything we've seen of it we like. Of course, if money is no option there's some good Samsung tablets too, but for the cost/benefit ratio I think a Nexus 7 is the undisputed king. Unless your mum is really into air gestures, stylus support, eyeball tracking blah blah blah.
PS The Nexus 7 also has free shipping at the moment! You can pick one up in the Google Play Store in the Devices section.
