(I installed the Google Play app & it works fine with it-so the content, while 'directed' towards Amazon isn't locked to it.) Neither has an ebook reader app or a video player app pre-installed. For me, this isn't a problem. For the average tablet buyer? I suspect that the bottom-line price of a tablet will depend on what they pre-install. Obviously the hardware isn't very expensive.
All these 7" sub-$100 Android tablets have crappy screens with resolution of 800x480. If it weren't for that, they'd be a pretty nice deal. I've got a feeling BB put a crappy screen in theirs to keep the price down.
