PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While browsing through dealextreme.com, a popular online shop for electronic products here in Asia, I was really surprised to see several iPad-like tablet computers that are sold for as low as $99 (US). Another surprising thing is that they are all powered by Android.

Those are the specs shown on the actual website. That is all I can go by, I can't make wild conjectures as anything else, maybe you can.

Or.......you could quit being snarky and read the website he linked you to.

I think it's great that Android tablets are coming out to compete with the iPad. I don't think it's great that copy and paste still is completely useless, there's no true multitouch, and the virtual keyboard still sucks. I'd also like to see someone come out with a well-built Android tablet that competes on merits and construction, not "let's see how much we can undercut the iPad for!"

In 2010, I'd rather take cheap over well-built any day.

We are going to see good tablets later, but these cheap gadgets make the wait easier.

Probably not going to happen, since most people who skipped out on the iPad don't seem to want to pay more than $200 for a tablet. Hey, you want cheap shit, then you get what you pay for.
