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.

It is selling ¥599 for a (4GB Storage) Version.
¥699 for the 8GB version. Here mentioned, it can be upgraded from Android ver 3.2. But it comes with Android ver 2.2 only. Strange?

Let's hope they aren't are bad as the other $100 devices. I suspect that MIPS might be interested in a higher quality device as their first device.

I think you may have used the wrong monetary symbol there...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/¥

Yuan, yen and won (Korea) all come from the same Chinese word.

Generally there's no key for http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/元 (the everyday handwritten symbol in China & Taiwan), so ¥ is often used, even if most Westerners associate it only with Japanese yen (understandable given China's previous low level of of economic interaction with the West).
