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.

I have cheap ass android tablet, and I swear me of just seven years ago would have killed for it. Resistive touch screens? I can read the web, ALL OF WIKIPEDIA IN FULL COLOUR, ebooks, and even comics on the thing. With a linux kernal underneath everything. I'm sad that this is in any way considered bad. Better than it's good? Sure, I'll accept that. But just being able to do one of those things at a price of a couple of dinners should be considered amazing. Let alone all of them.
