Hi all,Just wondering what your opinions are on the Smartq v7 (http://en.smartdevices.com.cn/Products/V7/200912/04-40.html)I'm torn between this and the Moonse E7001 and cant decide which one to pick. Both seems to have favourable reviews.The things that I like about the Smartq over the E7001 are:- HDMI out - 1080p video playback- Android 2.1 has already been released for it (although only a preview v2 at the moment)- 256MB RAMBut of course this is slightly pricier and the v7 doesn't have marketplace accessMeribobiles prices:Smartq V7Moonse E7001Just wondering what your valued opinions are.

[quote author=pphilipp link=topic=580.msg4804#msg4804 date=1275608289]Another big plus of the Smartq is it comes with three OS!!You can take your pick.For me, I thought I would love Android. I tried it for a couple weeks and chose another OS. It didn't really do what I wanted.You don't have that option with any other device.[/quote]Absolutely, although nearly every review I've read/seen suggests that Ubuntu & WinCE on it are very sluggish and unresponsive so Android is the way to go.But as a long time Linux only user it's nice to have that option

[quote author=KingDani link=topic=580.msg4818#msg4818 date=1275611791]...smartq v7 is right now a deadend at best , maybe a total waste of my money if they fail to come up with a working OS. wince is out of question , i can not even get it to work properly , or even worse , calibrate the screen. linux is very slow , but it's natural since it's a distribution for PCs and not ARM devices, at the same time , linux OS (ubuntu 9.5) is the most stable one. but you don't have a lively market for apps , so i really don't consider it as a true tablet. and android , is just the biggest waste of talent , this device is truly capable , having a super powerful CPU ( well, comparing with ekens at least ) and 256 mb of Comfortable RAM. even with the terrible iteration of Android OS , it still fares ok, but you get FCs and resets every 10mins, even worse , device freezes every once in a while , which drove me mad....my two cents[/quote]Thanks very much for your insight. Very useful. So unless someone says anything very different I'll stick to the Moonse e7001 for now and hope that an android update is released for it soon (can 2.1 run on 128MB RAM?).just curious, was the android version you used on the V7 the stock one or the 2.1 update?

[quote author=lawman link=topic=580.msg5338#msg5338 date=1275752757]I just posted about the pandigital novel. I would seriously tell you not to invest in the tablet market right now if you don't want to be buying something else in 8 months to a year....[/quote]I agree with you, but like you I'm only looking or something to tie me over till the good stuff comes out and but something better.For that reason I'm going for the most cost effective of these two which is the Moonse e7001.
