    so first of all thank you to everyone that has helped me thus far. There is such a wealth of knowledge on these forums and I have tried to gain as much as possible before making a decision on what to buy.


    I am curious if anyone has any experience with this tablet? It is the closest I have found to having everything I am looking for (with the archos 101 being the only tablet I have found that has everything I am looking for).

    this is all I could find for it

    Compare with the A8, this one can't be a good seller, but it's already worth for the money, if you really want to buy a worthful one, i would suggest you to buy one with android 2.2 OS, Best seller for android 2.2 on the market will undoubtedly be the apad 8 inch, maybe the 10.2 inch will more popular than the A8, but it's temporarily unavailable among the market.:cool:
    here recommend you a good seller: ecargoonline.com, you will get a free 4GB TF card there.:p

    That's a different one. I have moved this to a different thread.

    The one you show has a resistive touchscreen

    Another typical RK2818 660Mhz, 720p support, 256MB, 7" 800x480 screen, resistive

    I had bought that one but off of ebay. If you watch the merimobiles video review you will see it is very responsive almost like a capactive screen and that was the main reason why I bought it.

    Sure. I might have the add a RK2818 subforum if it is that much better than the RK2808. I am secretly hoping that it would be.

    well I paid $167.39 and that was free delivery. I am expecting it this week. This was the best price I could find anywhere and I went with ebay for 3 reasons: 1. ebay bucks+ big crumbs= cash back around $6 back automatically, 2. if anything goes bad I can leave negative feedback, and 3. I can always file a paypal claim.


    It didn't come with an HDMI cord but that wasn't a big deal since I bought one from a US seller for $4 shipped. It came within days. I also bought an SD 8gb card off ebay from a US seller for $10 shipped. So it wasn't a bad deal.

    It did arrive and so far I am pretty happy.

    I really like the trackball feature. I haven't had a chance to access the android market or internet yet but it runs pretty smoothly the video playback quality isn't bad at all and it is pretty responsive to the touch of my finger

    oh good stuff! yeh one of the main reasons why i'm considering this is because of the trackball.

    would it be too much trouble to ask for a write-up of pros and cons? :D
