I'm looking for an inexpensive 7" android tablet that will be dedicated to running torque (automotive gauges app) in my project car for a while. Obviously wifi speed, camera, etc, dont really matter. It just needs to have a decent processor and bluetooth as well as battery life. I have to fab my own mount for it.

I see a lot of deals for $60 and less but I dont want a Chinese/knockoff POS that will die in a few months. I notice my phone (LG Optimus) gets hot as phuck when running torque for 30+ minutes, so heat maybe an issue. Any recommendations?

the Asus MemoPad HD 7 is a good tablet for $150. i'm not sure how it would handle what you need to do on it, but check it out. $140 if you get blue.
