    Seriously... who comes up with these OS names?

    And I thought that UBUNTU was a stupid name!
    Richy99
    google does and they are named after foods, eclair, froyo - frozen yoghurt, ice cream sandwich, the next os will be jelly something more than likely

    there seems to be something about naming technology after anything thats edible... maybe its a sign.

    It actually means something though.

    I really wish I didn't get the Disgo 6000 in the Best Buy closing down sale now - cheap Android tablets have really taken off in the last few months!
    italoarmstrong
    Darroch, best advise i can give you mate is to go to a pcworld or similar and have a play on the various OEM android tablets they sell, then have a play with an iPad and see if it lives up enough for her needs...

    no real answer here... as everyones different. i personally own several tablets, but i judge them on different merits to most.

    ALWAYS try it - I bought an Archos 70 online in December, and hate it - coming to an auction site soon... Doesn't help that the Blackberry Playbook is so cheap, especially as you can now use android apps, and the market.
    diamondnine
    We got the Archos 70 (2.2) and they are great little tablets. Surf, youtube, BBCI Player, movies from the SD card and mp3s all play just fine and the range of the wifi is excellent. I assume this will be just as good if not better although it does say in the gumph that there is a problem with iplayer at the moment but will be fixed soon with a firmware update.

    Thanks italoarmstrong, it's Darroch's wife he is working away ATM just looking for something for her to surf the web, listen to music basically what she does on her laptop you know what teenagers are like they want to keep up to date with everything!!! i trust your judgement dont want it to expire and i miss out seems a good price or could you recommend anything else?
    Joe90_guy
    If someone from Futeko is reading this, can you say if you will put an updated Clean ROM on the T01 or will it ship with the stock Eken Rom?

    Allwinner A10 is a killer SOC chipset >1GHZ A8 CPU/Mali 400GPU, feature rich and $5 in bulk ... what makes these lieelt firecrackers possible ... what about the screen quality ?

    I have no Idea what you just said.

    For 80.00, but cant see they are going to be the next best thing. Just seems like the cheap Hong Kong ones off ebay, but sold in the UK.
    italoarmstrong
    These are much better than the cheap Chinese eBay jobbys... This has a cortex a8 design CPU... That FYI is the same as the iPad in architecture. It's just an oem manufacturer and probably plastic rather than unibody. So components will be cheap... But performance should be there....
    italoarmstrong
    Darroch's wife... I'd say these tablets are more for gadget loving folk rather than Teenage daughters.. Maybe look at the blackberry play book.. Probably similar to this but branded, so she'll know what it is, those retail for £169 now

    xoom, -__- loads of people get idea that it's "android at it's finest".
    It's ASUS or nothing.

    If she wants a tablet to do things with this will probably be fine. If she wants an iPad because it is an iPad, then the new iPad is the only thing that will satisfy, and that only until the next, newer one comes out.

    This one seems to have the spec, capacitive screen, webcam, latest Android version, but hard to tell the quality. It is only a 7 inch screen though.

    how much RAM?
    anything less than 512Mb will make this slow.
    italoarmstrong
    I agree with LongPockets... If she wants an iPad she won't want this.. But if in the market for a generic tablet, this is probably it at a cost:value ratio
