Now fully for retail in China. Cost is about 1000 YUAN = $150 USD locally in China. Specifications: Rockchip RK2808 @ 600 MHz128MB RAM4.8" 800x480 LTPS display (one of the best panels available for the MID market)Capacitive touch screenMicrosd (transflash) expansion8GB internal flash1500 mAh batteryMultiple physical buttonsG-sensor built inAndroid 1.5WifiCombined propriety charging and audio jackOptional 3G connectivityEngadget preview: http://www.engadget.com/2009/09/25/ramos-android-based-w7-mid-gets-real-real-familiar/http://www.engadget.com/2009/12/10/ramos-w7-in-the-wild-and-looking-good/Sources: Ramos Digital Chinahttp://www.ramos.com.cn/Example item listinghttp://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=5438217156iMP3 News Statement for Countrywide Shipmenthttp://www.imp3.net/10/show.php?itemid=22808Gallery and unboxinghttp://bbs.mumumusic.com/viewthread.php?tid=947&highlight=Translated review??transcribed as of May 28, 2010):1. Packaging and looks1.1 Packaging and accessoriesPackaging is typical Ramos flair, but without the legendary wooden case. A little disappointed.
Overall style is still pretty active and modern, with the box expressing an entertaining and social lifestylehttp://attachment.imp3.net/home/201005/27/487511_1274930693mJMy.jpg1.2 AppearanceYep. Overall it does has design cues from the iPod Touch, but it looks pretty good. Face-on is a big screen, thin frame, so overall size is pretty similar to typical 4.3" devices.
The back is beautiful, but at the same time a finger-print magnet. Those of you who care about that sorta thing ought to go get a full sleeve for it.
Charger and headphone jack is the same connector - a special flat connector:
Other than Android's typical menu, home, back keys, there's the additional the back key, volume up/down keys, and power keys distributed along the top and right edges of the device. The buttons light up momentarily upon depression.

".. The devices are retailing for $150 in China right now."not even that much, if off ebay I can get 3 day UPS Worldwide Express from Hong Kongplus the Eken for $112.. that UPS shipping method cannot be that cheap. So the device I was watching just sold for $62.

How come everyone acts like this is a low-priced device. The cheapest I've seen it is for $200 pre order... and who knows if it will actually sell for that price. Seems pretty expensive for a 4.3" device which has some pretty stiff competition.

I'm sure we'd all agree that half an inch more makes a difference :
