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.

Tablets are only considered luxury devices because they have been expensive until very recently.

Within a year or so tablets will cheap enough ($100-150) to be used as electronic toys for children. They will then sell tens of millions each year.


You're aware that Apple sold about 35 million iPads in the last year, right?
