PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Cheap Android tablets are all over the place, and generally not any good. They often have resistive touch screens instead of capacitive ones, are slow, or have no access to the Android Market. For Ice Cream Sandwich, MIPS Technologies is trotting out its existing Honeycomb tablet - which, you guessed it, uses a MIPS processor - licensed to Ainovo. For some reason, that makes this $99 tablet with capacitive screen kind of interesting.

10" tablet with proper screen, 8/16Gb storage and a good ARM SoC still costs about $260 to manufacture.


Try $120. Tablets with this hardware already wholesale in China for well under $150.

A Tegra 3 quad core SoC currently costs less than $25.

High end quad core tablets are expected to be <$300 within six months.
