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.

It gets slower as much as you use it, usually 30 minutes after a clean boot. Gets better if you manually kill a few processes, like the Browser.


The browser on Android is a real RAM sucker. Even on an official Android Froyo phone (and on my unofficial Android tablet), the browser will grab as much as a 100MB of RAM for cache. On my phone, this caused the device to run out of internal phone storage. I don't think even killing the app gets rid of this. I usually just go in to the Application Setting and clear out the cache. So far, I have not found a setting for limiting this cache.
