Anyone know of this tablet and where I can find out more?Wholesale-New 9.7" Android2.1 MID HDMI Camera G sensorI just ordered a WITS A81 with GPS from Wirelession via AliExpress and I saw this 9.7" tablet. If it is indeed, 512 MB of RAM, I might have to cancel my order. As much as I don't like 9.7" size of the iPad, I'd still appreciate the raw processing power. It's got twice as much RAM as the iPad and WITS A81 and it runs faster than the WITS A81. What's not to link considering it's $300?I really want to cancel my WITS A81 for this, but it might be a sham. Anyone got info regarding this tablet or just advice for me? Thanks!P.S. I'm a first time Android owner. I was really happy when Wirelession told me their A81 will come preinstalled with Froyo. Saves me the hassle of having to flash it myself. I'm scared of bricking this tablet.

How is this overpriced if the specs are correct? If this is real, i think $285 is way more then a fair price.Processor Cortex-A8 1GHz GPU Core PowerVR, Memory 512MB DDR2 RAM and the Display 9.7" AUO 1024x768 Panel. HDMI, Bluetooth.. I cant see how you think its not worth 85 more dollars.CPG

Dislike the "artist rendering" of actual product. Why don't they use a tablet and take actual photo of another unit? Look at the icons in the picture, they are not square and IMHO stretch out from photo of another tablet that's 7" and 16:9.

Have to go with mp4doggie here... overpriced.Slightly higher res screen, 200MHz, accelerometer and 256M extra RAM don't add up to a $300 value v. what's available. Besides which, I'm finding that I greatly prefer 7" (or smaller) for a tablet. Looking at one of my older nb 10" screen, would just make it a bit too big for my comfort in using... especially since I also use the tablet for reading after dark 10" would just be way too unwieldly...Now... the res might be nice... but come on another 0.3M camera?! OK! ... I'd expect 2M camera at least... ffs that Moonse Telechips has a 1.3M camera!

Also are we sure 320m outside, and 130m inside, isnt 3.2MP and 1.3MP ?CPG

Bluetooth also is nice if true. I'm uncomfortable with 'Processor Cortex-A8 1GHz' TI OMAP 3 series? or what.$285 + shipping For real Processor Cortex-A8 1GHz Nice unit. But I'm afraid it's overclocked rockchip or something.Well somebody has to be first. Not me I can't afford it. (keep telling myself that!)

Yeah, after the ZT180 fiasco anyone claiming a real context A8 is going to generate a bit of suspicion...
