I'm looking at a tablet under $200 NZ.
Ainol, (yep you read that right...), have a new 7" tablet out that's pitched at $99 US and runs Android 4.0
It's got everything I need, 1GHz processor, front and rear camera, capacitive screen, hdmi, usb, wifi. Just not entirely sure about a legit Android Market but we can all hope.
details are here
Also spotted the 'Dropad' A8 (seriously China, who names these things?). Also referred to as a Herotab C8. Seems to be very well supported on youtube, no GPS or 3G but I'm ok with that, though the GPS would be cool. details here
Locally that is the Cruz at say $229, Capacitive, not sure on camera's or Android market.
Or the V9 at $199 which is resistive, but packs 3G and GPS in there too. Both are 600 MHz processors from memory. details here
Both the local options are lower power for more cost than you could get one sent from overseas. Huge less risk though of course if you buy local, just how much does that reduced risk cost you in $ terms. Great info on both of the above units in this dicussion. geekzone.co.nz
No idea of Android Market ability etc. I'm not up with the play on this, but as I understand it you still need to get this going from within the device, ie can't download apps elsewhere and transfer to a non android marketing device?
Any ideas/comments/experience/what out for ideas etc with these cheaper units?
