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.

Stop talking nonsense.

These tablets have 1GHz A9 Cortex, capacitative touchscreens, 1GB RAM and 8GB memory.

If you really think a display costs $200 you must be paying retail or drinking the Apple Kool Aid.

High impact plastics are used by practical people who understand engineering and real world.

Plastic is light weight, can be made in any colour, is non-slip, high impact, doesn't dent and doesn't block or distort signals.

Glass and aluminium are used by brainless designers who prefer form over function.

Glass is heavy, brittle and slippery.

Aluminium scratches and dents easily and must be painted or anodised. It blocks and distorts signals.
