Anyone ordered the Eken m003?It looks a lot better than the m001. The build too.
[/quote]Uh, don't be so sure it's "a lot better than the m001".In all important areas, it's basically the m001 with a wider screen and housing.My theory is that Eken developed the m001, and then Apple's iPad became a huge hit. Eken saw that by reworking their m001 to appear much more like the iPad, they might sell more since it now appears to be an iPad clone.Chinese manufacturers have done this type of thing over-and-over throughout the years. When the iPhone became a phenomenom, all of sudden Chinese phones appeared... some simply containing the same innards as previous releases.BTW, the $40 shipping places this auction higher than many m001 auctions. Is it worth the cost difference to have a wider screen? Something to think about.

I guess the only two things it has going for it over the M001 is the slightly larger screen and the external USB2.0 host connection.Is that worth $30-40 more?

the places that sell the m001 and the m003 display the same hardware specs (just the display is different).just in case you want a external usb port, the m001 has one available. its kinda DIY (internal port only, needs hub to be added) however its possible.

I heard that Ecotox and Willo are going to be cooking something up, but nothing confirmed yet.

Processor and specs are about the same.

I dont think I'm going to be doing anything with the m003. I like the m001 FAR more then the m003. the only difference between the 2 is screen and price, I also dont have the money for one XP maybe if i had the money i would. As for using the m001 firmware, i dont see why not, same device different screen, try if you want but i'm not responsible if something happens XP

i ordered mine yesterday. If i am honest i do not expect it to be delivered. If i got it or not i let you know anyway. On the other hand i should better order an eken m001 or an apad. The community support here seemes better for both. i have few to none experience with android or linux. gl&hf

Apad is looking a lot better, but i'm still wondering if the rockchip CPU will perform much better than the M003/M001.Both eken's have the same cpu, and same (bad) performance. You get what you pay for.. don't pay too much.Marvell PXA303 performance looks good on YouTube vids. But, the RK2808 is looking really well in this laptop video from Charbax: Android Laptop Review: Hivision PWS700CAAnd let's not forget the Telechips.. they have an on-board 'gpu' like the RK2808 has as well. We're just scratching the surface on these products. There's a lot of potential, and.. also a lot of potential crap from China
