This product just wont be as good as an iPad. Yes, it might be a heck of a lot cheaper, but i'd prefer to spend the extra and get a product from an extremely reputable company and a product I know works well.

I've never even heard of Eken before.

I'm gonna get one, work want to see if we can use something like this so I get to have a play :)

not with DX :)

you give them $136 & they send you a "gift" or some LED ommitors! LOL
#15
Anyone know if this has Resistive or Capacitive touch screen? Because if it's the former, it won't compare to the iPad at all.

Though I am very interested if it's capacitive.

I'm not entirely convinced that this is the Eken M003. There is no reference to it that I can see on the web page. Dare I say it but it may be a clone of a clone :thinking:

Technically that is custom charges evasion and illegal, anything over £18 is subject to charges and vat regardless if marked as a gift.

Things will change with the government wanting to claim what is due, I would expect controls to be tighter

its what DX do, i dont ask them to do it.

to be honest, i agree with adding VAT. the part i dont agree with is that they add on an extra charge on top of VAT. my last 2 times royal maill added an £8 charge, parcelforce added £10! why?

as others have said, they actually havent said this is the eken m003.

i'm just waiting to see if DX get the dawa D7 in & at what price!

The Parcelforce fees are their handling charges it isn't so straight forward to just flag up a package for VAT, there is admin to consider. None the less DX or not you still would be responsible for the declaration

If you want a decent, non-Apple, tablet then wait and see what the upcoming Android-based ones are like.

Yeah, but then add €30 for a charger, €20 for a web browser, €20 for a media player capable of playing more than just the free codecs, and so on from there. Archos are even worse than Apple when it comes to bogus restrictions and gouging. And also, they're French. Their gear's nicely designed, but if you think you're going to get good value out of them, you're really in for a lot of dissapointment.
#28
I am grateful to all companies that ship devices with chargers , they are generous and caring organisations .
And charging for for a browser in 2010 is simply outrageous.

What need does this device fill, or an ipad or any other tablet device?

as far as i can tell there is no need for them to exist unless they are being used for home automation.

I love Archos (I have the 30gb 3g model) and as a media player they are absolutely spot on. As a n internet device though, they lack finesse. And as the others have said they charge you (alot) for the most basic things (including codecs so you can watch different movie formats).

So far, I wouldnt replace an iPad with an Archos, although the Android OS does look good. I would be very wary about buying something like this without playing with it first. The usability, speed and flexibility have to be paramount on a tablet like this and until that can be established (in significant numbers) I wont be buying one.

No offence to the Chinese, but this is Chinese rubbish isn't it? It does seem interesting but I've been bitten too many times by crap on dxextreme and ebay, by trying to buy chinese electronics that seem to have a decent spec but the implementation is appalling.

Possible V.A.T./ imort duty prices on this? Never bought anything this 'expensive' on dealextreme before, maybe that's why everything has failed for me :P
