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.

I don't think many of the cheapo manufacturers will have the budget, know-how, manpower or will to make a solid Android build for their devices. Best choice when buying a no-name tablet is to find a model that has an active community developing a custom firmware for it and just use that.

These machines are designed by specialist companies based in Taiwan and built under contract in Shenzen - just like virtually every major brand notebook.

99% of cheap tablets are destined for the Chinese domestic market.
