This goal here is to not get scammed by bad SlateDroid resellers. If you have a reseller that gave you a great deal and shipped quickly . tell us here and vice versa if you felt legitimately scammed and wronged let us know . If you check ebay the eken is all over the place for sale.

You have to read the description carefully. Underneath the list of applications it says this:
Attention:If the above mentioned applications are not built-in, they can be downloaded in the Market for free.As long as you have registered or have a gmail account, by using the Market of Android, you can download large quantity of applications and games without paying.The function and software is as well as the App Store of IPHONE.
Nowhere in that does he actually say that it comes included with the Android Market and, judging by his language skills <-he's German, I wouldn't have thought he'd have the capacity to hack the device and install Android Market it on there. If he had done then he would have made a much bigger fuss as it would have given him a massive USP over the other sellers.

FAO mp4doggie:I bought 2 Ekens as I was going to play with the firmware and possibly open one up. I didnt want to end up without a working one :)FAO ahmedkom:It has a Chinese Market App installed, not the Google Android Marketplace, so uninstall and find an alternative.... Having said that, I have found all the free apps I need on the web and using the other mentioned alternative market apps out there.I am also looking for the M003 8" model as it has an external full size USB Host socket. It is an Eken, and has almost identical specs to the M001 save the screen size (its still 800x480) so the firmware might be the same, which means M001 Ekens could be hacked to have a USB socket and have built in support already. Yes, I am a gadget Womble... Amassed so far:Sony Mylo 1Sony Mylo 2 2 x Eken M001 (Rooted, Swapfiles, Latest Firmware)JXD A30 PMPFujitsu Stylistic LT64 (ancient Debian, SSD conversion)Norhtec Edubook Netbook (Puppy Linux)etc....

I have bought a few things of dealextreme and always arrived well packaged and on time. They have done a recent price match so it is now $108US with Free Shipping which I think is the standard now right?

Knowing it will actually arrive and be packed in bubble wrap when it does is worth a couple of dollars premium over the ebay prices.

For clarification purposes VIA8505 is 300mhz at most pre oc`d to 350mhz, It is NOT 600 533 800 ect nor does it have dual core or DSP of any type. Any tablet sporting a 8505 isnt worth 10bucks let alone 100. I purchased what I was told was a Rockchip tablet and ended up getting a VIA 8505 tablet. It is an utter piece of crap. They should have paid me the 100 bucks for the frustration it has caused me.
