Nope. It's the M218B. This is the OEM model that the Jetbook is based on.

Back in October, the manufacturer's rep said that they were looking for a US distributor. That might lead one to assume that they would at least provide a translated copy of the manual. Nope. They also did not fully translate the device error messages into English.

I just now got the Wifi working. The probelm was caused by the menu option that said "Wifi: On", which I took to mean that it was. What the menu should have said is "Turn Wifi On".

Yes, it has a browser of some kind. Unfortunately, it is in Chinese.
