dunno about that statement... 800MHz CPU either means Cortex A8 or Telechips... etiher way should be better than the PDN in the CPU power department... good 'nough for me to wait and see some more again...Not to mention I'd rather have a 7" tablet than a 10"... and they can keep their 3G or stuff it where the sun don't shine...

[quote name='Mike;23394]Whatever floats your boat man xD[/QUOTE]The "cake is a lie" in Russian?!Anyways' date=' just prejudiced against 3G as it adds unnecessary cost for many and generally entail contracts that help no one other than the wireless carrier's profit margins... or at least that's the way that it works here... they're trying hard to get general landline ISPs in the same boat but that's not quite floating yet...[EDIT']I'm kind of surprised that machine translation did so well on that, or maybe not if that's how it got to be in Russian... (I let google auto-detect it...)[/EDIT]

I think what's special is that it is said to run Android 2.1, and might have access to the market,that has been a big hump to get over when it comes to the cheap Chinese tablets.I wonder how long it will be before some enterprising soul figures out how to adapt that to the EKEN?Of course I have a horse in that race, since I own an M001. LOLI hope it's good, too bad there's not a single KMART in my city.
