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.

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).

I can take you insulting me as a grammar nazi, but your dangling preposition is something up with which I will not put!
