Advice on buying a low budget tablet

I want to buy a low cost tablet such as http://www.andypad.co.uk/default.aspx

My max budget is about £150.

Although the budget is low all I really want to be able to do is play a few facebook games like global warefare and angry birds.

The features it needs are WIFI capability, best screen resolution as possible, ideally a USB port, ability to upgrade it's memory using an SD card and all website support such as flash player and shockwave.

Maybe the Andy Pad Pro at £175 would do the job but i'm sure there are loads of alternatives on the market but not sure where to start looking or which manuafacturers are good/bad.

Hi, I would recommend you Kindle, from Amazon. You can use facebook with it, and I think the price is now 79$ but I'm not sure about it. It's sure below 150$
The Kindle Fire tablet has been announced and is probably your best bet, but won't be available until Nov 17th in the USA and I don't see any announcement dates for the UK, so it depends on how desperate you are to get hold of one.  

That's going to drive prices down a lot so worth probably waiting for even if you don't want that particular model.

Thank you for the valuable advice.  I will take a look at whether I just get the existing Kindle or wait for the new one
Don't think the $79 will play games you listed. It's basically an ereader, not much more. Be sure to try out before you buy.
