"10gb storage" - anyone bought this does that mean 10gb internal flash drive or have they just stuck an SD card in with the box.
#4
Looks to be 2gb flash and an 8gb card.

IIUC resistive touchscreen, not that high resolution (800x480), not that good battery life, slowish processor, not that much RAM, probably no Android Market. It's a cheap gadget for what it is but it's no iPad-killer (IMHO)!

I'll second that, whilst also asking what the screen quality is like on this?

Thanks

check XDA forums see if they;ve touched it, or google. you'll have to go custom ROM most likely.

What is with all these reposts ffs it was only 2-days ago this deal was last posted!

No multi-touch. Even the higher specs Model 1000 of this doesn't have multi touch.

It's basically a wifi web browser with some basic android 1.6 functiomality thrown in and that's about it.

I've said this on every other cheap Android tablet thread, but I'll say it again.

This tablet will simply not work.

128mb of RAM is significantly less than the first Android device released over two years ago.

The processor is literally a joke.

3.5 hours battery life will be with the screen off and wi-fi. If you're using this for browsing you will be lucky to get 45 minutes.

This is so underpowered that it will be so sluggish to the point of being unusable.

Do not waste your money, wait for the Advent tablets being released on the 18th, the cheaper one at £129 is still underpowered, but should at least be a capable browsing device.

It genuinely angers me that such a brilliant platform as Android is going to be tarnished in many people's eyes by these cheap and useless tablets.
#24
Totally agree, Google will have to be careful of this and it's at least part of Apple's success. Although IMHO Android is better, so far, as an o/s.
#25
This sounds rubbish! My Hero has more RAM (not to mention an higher OS Version) than this, save your money!

Out of curiosity, in which country is the iPad manufactured?

I'm sure Apple use a better class of slave labour than any other manufacturer.

Is Apple's suicide factory outsourcing to even cheaper Chinese peasants?

No you don't!
I paid the feeble, poxy, useless Royal Mail to deliver a Recorded Delivery letter.
They "lost" it.
Just who finds delivering a clearly and correctly addressed letter complicated?

MONKEYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has a resistive touchscreen so almost definitely not

Don't bother, it runs like a dead dog.
The resistive touch screen is awful and hard to press close to the edges. No idea of the speed of the CPU, but it doesn't seem any quicker than the 300Mhz CPU in my cheapo Chinese tablet.
I've also been told the CPU will not support full Flash, only Flash lite.
And to top it off, no marketplace access...

It's a waste of money, you'll just get frustrated with it. Between now and Q1 2011 there will be masses of droid tablets hitting the market. Do yourselves a favour and wait/save up and buy a half decent tablet for not a lot more in the near future.

Not always, I got an Elonex 32" LCD TV a couple of years ago (paid £320 when most decent 32" TV's were £400 minimum).
Amazing TV, stunning picture quality still rivals recent releases from the likes of Sony, LG, Samsung etc. Not had a single problem with it either.

I bought a cheap Android Tablet from DX for about the same sort of money and tbh its rubbish. Not a fast enough processor to be anywhere useful (on mine) and has remained turned off after I recieved it and tried it out. All of these Android devices are upgradeable but can the processor cope with the new OS is a question you need to investigate thoroughly and also all apps are stored on the "on-board" memory NOT the memory card so the on board memory is absolutely crucial (no pun intended). My upgrade ate deep into the on board memory on my device and I only ended up having space for about 5 apps.

Not wanting to put people off these cheap tablets from China too much, but I've tried some and the thing to be aware of is they are often massively underpowered with regards to battery. So no matter how cheap it is you have to consider whether it's of any use if the battery drains within 7 hours of being on standby inside a bag (a lot of these state 3 hours use - more likely 1-2, only 7 hours standby before it dies from doing nothing at all).

Resistive screens are also something you may want to try before you buy, they don't work well on Android, people claim stylus input is good, but the low CPU power in these combined with resistive screens makes for a really frustrating experience where you may find yourself clicking buttons multiple times before it responds.

Compare that to an Archos 70 for example (~£170, launched yesterday, sold out already), which will play music for 3 days straight. The price difference is there, but the battery life and speed for me means the difference between having a tablet that you use, and one that just sits on a shelf because it is in effect, useless.

The difference between Android 1.6 and 2.1/2.2 is pretty substantial, the vast majority of 1.6 tablet devices will never be upgradeable. 2.2 is a lot faster (think Windows Vista compared to Windows 7), and deals with battery usage a lot better. 128mb of RAM is simply not enough for a tablet of this size, the raw screen graphics will eat so much of this, it'll leave barely anything for browsing or video.

As for the high-end, Galaxy Tab, heads and shoulders above the rest, but that is one insanely high price. In Q1 2011 we will see a spate of Tegra 2 powered tablets which will begin to compete with iPad in terms of graphics and polish without having the high price of the Galaxy.

Anyway just a few points to add to the discussion for anyone mulling this deal over. It may be cheap, but does it work.

Anyone thinking of an Android tablet should hang fire and wait for Gingerbread, i.e. Android 3.0 this will include support for higher resolutions and so will make tablets more of a match for the ipad.

In my opinion, the whole point of HUKD is getting more that what you paid for!
That's what we're here for : More stuff for less money.

Its a resitive touch screen. Its designed for use with a stylus.

You are after a capactive touch screen - its what all touch screen phones/ipad ect use
#38
Really do some research into these tablets. been following another forum and some have recently purchased more expensive tablets (the Toshiba Folio for example) and are seeing problems or issues with it.

so more is not always good as well. Look at what you want from these devices then hammer google for genuine reviews from people that have actually owned a device.

I purcahsed one of these guys about 3 Months ago, this had the rockchip duel core processor in it along with 4Gig of storage. £140 from Amazon

Very good, surfing was pretty quick and playing movies HD 720p ones not a propblem and that was using Android 1.6.

Music played preectly although the internal speaker was not worth a sook, otherwise good

Android market stuff all worked well, but did notice alot of programes would remain in memory and had to use the app manager to kill them

I gave this to my father to use and he had it goosed by the end of the day... recently just sold it on for £100

Battery life is the worst ever 2 hours with WIFI enabled, possibly 4 Hours without...

All in All I thought it was Good and was able to read ecomics, but the battery life made it PANTS !

at 100 quid, its hot
