I have an Android tablet 1.6 (256mb) that appears to be a cellphone version hence is severly limited in NZ (as it cannot be used as a cellphone) Is it possible to upgrade?
It is a build no 1.9, kernel version 2.6 29-00236-g4f8dbbb-dirty

Very cheap Chinese tablets were based on old Android versions to make them... cheap.

The side effect of this was lack of support, updated versions, etc. Acer Iconia, Samsung Galaxy, Motorola Xoom cost more but give you a lot more to.

Or as sbiddle said, not likely.
