bazzer: So are these worth buying or what?

IMO, yes.  for the price I paid( I think around 200NZD for 32G), the closest tablet I can get for that price are chinese knockoffs.

Exactly. Even if it's a DOA OS, the fact that there's a possibility that Android might be ported to it is already a big plus. And it's a nice piece of tech (even if it weighs a truckload more than an iPad 2).
