Looks like a good deal for those that want to dip their toes into the tablet water. It's not an iPad but it doesn't seem to bad. I have just ordered one today. If it is any good, I will get one for my mum so she can use Skype, email etc.
It gets good reviews, apart from resistive screen, it's a great price and it just been reduced by ebuyer.
It seems identical to the deal extreme tablet http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.47008
(which also gets good reviews but costs more when you add duties and tax). Well done Ebuyer!
I think its hot but I'm willing to find out if there are hotter deals!
