PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless 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.

RE[7]: Young market

"I do agree that other manufacturers do have a few things to learn from Apple, though I personally hope they won't take the walled garden approach by heart."

That would be a major set back for consumers and developers everywhere. The IBM PC was great because it was so openly accessible and hackable. It would be a shame if we forgot the lessons of openness and revert back to proprietary systems and vendor lock.

It's not just apple who's guilty here. Since vista, microsoft killed all open source drivers in windows. DRM is cropping up everywhere. We're crossing from the golden age of computing into the dark ages of computing. We're not there yet, but if we're not vigilant, corporations will be happy to take us there.
