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.

"Same thing was said 6-12 months ago. Funny how that hasn't happened.

You couldn't buy a $100 tablet a year ago. You can now.

Sure you could. Lots of chinese sites were selling really cheap android tablets. They sucked, and this one is better, but still nothing compared to an iPad or premium android tablet.

The best use for tablets is keeping young children amused. Young children only need to watch movies, read a story or play simple games. This need is easily satisfied by very cheap tablets.


How exactly is the market for childrens toys the same as the tablet market? You said Apple would be in trouble. Last I checked they weren't in the business of making toys.
