Just picked up a Pipo S1 7" and I like it. It appears the firmware needs to be updated and it doesn't have the cool Jellybean look of the Nexus, even though it is Android 4.1.1. Just learning about Rockchip tablets.
Pipo S1 now rooted with 4.1.1
Toshiba Thrive 10" with stock ICS
Got rid of the Viewsonic 10" but did manage to root it

Well, I HAD a Pandigital SuperNova, but it just died. After installing the mods and ROMs created here, it ran much better, but then the power connector seemed to not work, though it charged through the USB port, but now it won't even do that anymore. It's completely dead. I've tried contacting Pandigital, and (big surprise) I get no response. I sent them a message a few weeks ago, and have heard absolutely NOTHING.

I'm going to use some $ I got for Christmas to get a new tablet, and was looking at the Kocaso M870. It's an 8 inch, so I can use the keyboard/case I got for my PDSN with it. It's got these specs:

CPU: Allwinner A10, Cortex-A8@1.2GHz;
Screen: 8 inch TFT 800 X 600 Capacitive Multi-Touch;
Network: Support external 3G module dongle
G-Sensor: 4 way G-Sensor

Screen Rotation: Support
Memory: Built-in 8GB, TF Card Max to 32 GB
OS: Android 4.0

Camera: Front Facing 0.3MP and Rear Facing 2.0MP
HDMI: Max 1080P, HDMI V1.4 3D
Touch Screen: Capacitive Touch Screen (five point touch)
Card Reader Slot: T-flash card (Support up to 32GB)

Sound effect: - In focus Audio
- Built-in stereo speaker
- Built-in Microphone

Media File Audio: AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, AMR-WB, QCP, MP3, WMA, WAV, MIDI, M4A
Video: WMV, ASF, MP4, 3GP, 3G2M4V, AVI, MJPEG, RV10, DivX, VC-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, h.263, H.264 (support 1080P video-watching)
Gravity Sensor: 4-Dimensional gravity sensor

Unit Size: 200.4 x 154.3 x 10.3 mm ;
Unit Weight: 450g;

I'm hoping it's going to be a good buy at $99. Let me know if it's not so I don't waste my hard earned Christmas $.

I have the old (1½ years) RK97D with Android 2.3.1 which can't upgrade.
Then I have the new Icoo D70 Pro II with Android 4.1.1 with a bad battery but cheap and speed OK.
I've ordered a new 9.7" Tablet, The Freelander PD80 with Android 4.1.1 and RK3066 chip.

nextbook7 premium se (model # in my sig). specs are:
800x480 res/16:9 aspect ratio
multi-touch (5-finger)
.3mp front facing cam
Cortex single core 1ghz cpu
1gb ddr3 ram
mini hdmi
micro usb
micro sd (put an extra 4gb micro sd card i had lying around in it, but of course would like to upgrade to 32gb)
mic and headphone jack (3.5mm standard)

8gb internal storage

micro usb port is a host port so i got an adapter (micro usb->usb 2.0 female) and am using a targus 4 port usb splitter - hooked up a wireless mouse (logitech m325) and a nice case with built in keyboard to it. works fantastic. picked the case up off of amazon.com for $12(usd). got one for the wife and daughter's tablets too (wife has the same model as me, daughter has a Craig 7" CMP741e). also have a cheap usb bluetooth adapter i plugged in, but have yet to get it working. think i have to download the drivers and try using modprobe or something. i'll try it out eventually. installed a multitude of applications - from a terminal emulator to need for speed most wanted and many points in between. love this device. it's a handy little unit for business and for play. :)

i haven't got a tablet yet, but I'm considering one of the chinese ones like Pipo M1 or the Momo 12 because I'm starting to figure out that there are so many patent limitations on normal tablets that it's really dumbed the market down... Ipad won't allow slots, neither will google just because they want everyone buying their other warez and on the cloud, and the list just goes on and on...

I've got a Freelander PD20. It was the cheapest 7 inch tablet I could find that had GPS. I paid 101 dollars with shipping from Pandwill. So far it seems alright, a bit slower than I was expecting though. The Chrome browser just crawls on it, Opera runs much faster but I find Opera sometimes messes up images on certain webpages.

I've got an Icoo D70 Pro2 that is very impressive. Battery life is only about 2 hours,so, I keep it plugged in at my desk or use my external battery when I'm out. I thought that this was just going to be a toy type of thing, but, it turns out to be a very powerful and fast tablet and very lightweight also. It comes apart very easy to inspect the innards or to change the battery. I like it so much that I just ordered a second one to give to my wife because she keeps using mine and enjoys it so much and I never get to use it. Android 4.1, Google Playstore and many more excellent apps. Also excellent display quality on my 46" TV using the tablet output from HDMI. I've had Ipad Mini and Nexus 7 and other than the lack of Bluetooth and the short battery life this is just as good, plus, the bonus is that if someone steals this tablet or I lose I'm only out $83. Can't beat it for that price.
