    Question Purchasing tablets direct from China

    Is there any advantage to purchasing directly from China? I'm pretty comfortable hacking away at Android and even some hardware hacks if necessary. I'm not terribly concerned with support since I'll be trying to flash and hack roms.

    The main thing I'm interested in is purchasing the tablets for as little as possible.

    Thoughts?

    There are many places to buy tablets online. The tablet you are looking for depends on what you mostly want to hack on it. Do you plan to make custom roms from the original rom? What android version do you want to have? Most of the time the android version that comes with the tablet is the one it will be stuck with. you can only expect custom rums derived from that one made by the community. Shanzai tablets are rather cheap. you can get a decent tablet for under 200$.

    Sorry, I meant physically purchasing them in China, not online.

    I have several coworkers that travel to China relatively frequently. From a cost standpoint, would it be less expensive to purchase them in person?

    epad 7" tablet from China w/rockchip 256MB 2GB

    Android tablets

    I jsut bought a chinese tablet from gogoorders.com for $82.00 but you can get lots of 5 or less cheaper at ***************, *********** and MadeInChina.com. I haven't recievd mine yet and thats funny since the only reason I bought this one at gogoorder.com was to get express shipping. Ordered other items from China on same day and already have them (economy free shipping) the 3 I gave you should have sellers that sell by 1 piece only and look for free shipping if you dont mind waiting a couple of weeks. The parent websites keep your paypal money in escrow until your happy and have great resolution systems. Bought a phone last month (couple of weeks ago) just to check it out and it came with a cracked screen. I sent it back for $12.00 USPS and will recive my money when the seller receives the phone.

    I believe your only advantage buying in person is save on cost on shipping aside from price.
