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.

The only tablets so far that aren't crap (such as the Xoom), are more expensive than the iPad, and are selling appropriately. I wouldn't hold my breath for a tablet that's cheaper than the iPad but can still keep up.


You mean the only tablet, as in SINGULAR, because the Xoom is the only real Android tablet (meaning, not one running a phone OS) that has been released so far, and even it shipped with no wireless-only SKU, without a working SD slot, no Flash support (which was supposed to be one of those things that really mattered on a tablet and why some folks turned their noses up at the iPad), an LTE feature that you'd have to ship back to the manufacturer to get working properly, and very rough around the edges overall. They have finally enabled Flash support, but from what I've heard, it runs like ass, just as it does on every other Android device that supports it.

You know, it's funny... when the iPad first came out, people talked about how overpriced it was, and how superior and cheaper Android tablets would flood the market and kill the iPad. Now here we are over a year later; Apple is on its second iteration of the iPad, and Android vendors are still sitting around with a thumb up their asses, trying to figure out what to do.

I've seen rumours many companies can't get the needed screens for a decent price from the screen manufacturers because Apple already made deals with them to produce screens and there is only limitted production capacity.
