    Not really that great... paying $200 more for 512MB of RAM is not worth it in my eyes.

    It's almost identical to the gTablet. This tablet makes no sense to buy.

    256MB RAM is fine for most tablets.

    If you're going to spend that much, might as well get the Xoom... which, I feel itself, is too expensive.

    I would stay away from this. Even the manufacturer hasn't decided which cpu they are going to use: CPU: NVIDIA Tegra2, Cortex A9, dual core CPU, 1GHz. Which is it Tegra2 or Cortex A9?

    Also do you know if Honeycomb will ever be available for it from the manufacturer? I can see devs porting it over, but why would they when the Xoom already will have Honeycomb for the same price?

    I have to say I have this tablet and it is, as my sig says, awesome. Of course, I also didn't pay nearly 600 for it and wouldn't. It is a great Tegra 2 based tablet, but not 600 bucks. I'm not sure I would pay 600 for any tablet, Xoom included.

    There is another difference, GTab doesn't have 3G option

    You have picked the wrong place to buy from, these guys have more complaints from customers all over the world , including my son and i who are out 350.00 for two tablets we don't have!

    Check out Elocity A10, has all features of Malata tab, and their based in USA,, Pre orders being accepted at tigerdirect.com around $399.00! to $429.00
