I have an iPad and don't need another tablet but thought you guys might want to check this out. I spent only a minute looking at it and for $100 it looks OK. I don't know but you guys will. Just a shot for the forum.

Looks like another cheap Chinese tablet with poor specs. Personally, I wouldn't waste my money on this.

Oh well, thought I'd pass it on anyway. Don't know much about android stuff. Sounded good.

Not a problem. Some people like the heads up, because they enjoy playing around with cheaper devices.

The problem with most of these tablets, is that they use low end components with older technology in order to cut costs. The processors are underpowered and the displays are lower resolution with resistive touch panels. This stuff was cutting edge technology several years ago, but now it's quite outdated.

but cheep cheep cheep. Someone will want it. (yes ... cheap)

I remember when we changed the chrystals in marine radios in Oz so I could speak to the CB "Good Buddies" in the US. They weren't HAM radios but it got the job done and we spoke to the other side of the planet when we used to hold our breath waiting if the long distance phone calls would connect!

Haven't we come a long way? Most kids will take it for granted that their video conference on the iPhone will connect across continents. Only ten years ago my university clients were boasting that they had that capability and I made it a major feature in their promotion.

Dick Tracey watches can speak to go-go-gomaz now.

I want one of those flying garbage cans with the crutches attached.

STOP laughing. . . . the military did it years ago. sans crutches.
:D

cheep, cheep, cheep, a little birdie said it was so.
