Six New Android 2.2 Tablets from Augen!
Supposedly being released "this fall". The higher-end tablets sound interesting, especially the Espresso Doppio - dual boot Android 2.2 and Ubuntu with a detachable keyboard/base for $599.
Based on my experience with my TB, which has so much potential but has been riddled with bugs and pretty much ignored by Augen, I am taking this announcement with a very large grain of salt, but we'll see...

While I would not want to lump all products from a single maker together, the Augen I saw for sale at a local KMart was a cheap POS. Battery life stunk and it was really slow...

As far as the new devices, had one in my hands for about one hour this courtesy of a “buyer” that was asking my opinion this puppy sure looks like a decent china made M003 clone running slightly customized (with Augen name and wallpaper) android 2.1 mind you not the fastest unit but decent performance for a 800 MHz CPU. Had the same free ebook library that was in the abandoned “The Book” device and it included a freeware android ebook reader.
When I asked the price had a good laugh, absolutely ludicrous The big book stores have announced their own “official” android offerings that are less then Augen’s and I am sure will be full operational unlike Augens previous two offerings
Augen, good luck You WILL NEED IT.
