Doesn't seem bad at all, although I cannot find any mention of whether the touch screen is resistive or capacitive. *EDIT* It is resistive.....link to another seller for £119.99

The capacitive version for £169.99 looks nicer, aluminium casing too



Yep, that's where I found the links from, except the article is nonsense, it makes it sound like the product is UK Manufactured, I am sure the company Storage Options get these as OEMs from China....and they are not the cheapest android 2.3 tablets as there are capacitive ones with gingerbread on them for around the £120 price, actually I tell a lie, they have 2.2 on them, but can be upgraded to 2.3.

CCL Computers who are distributors for them even have them for just £114.18 delivered for the resistive screen version, or £165.66 delivered for the capacitive version.

Thanks for the CCL link; they are within driving distance for me so I would probably buy through them!
Seems no Google apps on the device including the Market!
Anyone know how to install Market?
Without this I can't see myself buying it!

That would be odd, although you could download the apk file on your computer, and USB connect the device, or simply copy the apk to a micro sd card, whichever the apk file is the executable for installing the application.
