PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Cheap Android tablets are all over the place, and generally not any good. They often have resistive touch screens instead of capacitive ones, are slow, or have no access to the Android Market. For Ice Cream Sandwich, MIPS Technologies is trotting out its existing Honeycomb tablet - which, you guessed it, uses a MIPS processor - licensed to Ainovo. For some reason, that makes this $99 tablet with capacitive screen kind of interesting.

Ouch at the $60.00 shipping. Still a great deal.

Having just purchased the Nook Color not too long ago, I'd rather spend money on something with a keyboard and a bigger screen with a great battery (like the Asus Transformer ... except I guess I'll wait till prices are competitive with x86 laptops).

This is a marketing failure. People freak out when they see a shipping fee thats %60 of the price, even if the total isn't that bad of a deal. The right approach is to price that at $140 with $20 shipping. The company still gets the same amount of money, but it seems like a better deal to most people.
