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.

Have you handled any of the devices? The plastic the use for the cheap devices? It's not Samsung grade plastic, it's the low end knockoff children's toys plastic.

In addition, I just checked - Tegra2 1GB RAM, 8GB storage with 1280x800 is sill about $300 in high volume. With lower rez panel it's $20 off.
For Cortex A9 from Zenithink(that crap) with 512Mb RAM and 4-8GB storage at 1024x600 it's 140-200.

All prices quoted FOB Shenzhen.
