PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Geeks.com sent us in an Android 2.2 tablet, the MID M80003W. They recently populated their store with a number of cheap tablets, so we thought it was a good idea to see what one could expect from these products that seem to have flooded the market recently.

Theories...

I have a few theories about why these devices even exist:

- they are _not_ jokes, and it is genuinely hoped people will buy them and enjoy them *giggle*

- Apple is manufacturing these tablets using parts that fell on the floor, to make Android look like rubbish

- Microsoft is manufacturing these to make all tablets (iPad included) look like rubbish

Haha. For the record, I never had rich parents. I just have a decent full-time job (software developer) and no kids or cigarette addiction to stop me from being able to buy nice things.

Some people may enjoy them. If it was less than $100, I would buy a couple, just for the cheap, easily programmable display.

They're for people with imaginations and patience, those without the ability to pay for a better machine to surf the web, or those who do not do their research.
