I know its cheap, however mind that the press release does not state the size (though charbax said its propably 10") I think the 99 USD price tag is for a smaller device. BTW check out charbax video of 4.3" tablet from CES:

If it can run Ubuntu I would buy one immediately. Android is great, but I like choice...

Appears I've answered myself...
