    I'm researching my first tablet buy, so I'm trying to understand the different versions, HW, SW, etc.

    On the TCC8902, it seems that mostly Android 2.1 is used, which doesn't support Flash. However, I've seen some "new" TCC8902 tablets that are running Android 2.3. These still don't support Flash, though. Also, there was a thread on the Pandawill forum about how they were testing Android 2.3 for the G10 tablets and there were many delays as they found problems.

    So, my question: is Android 2.3 on TCC8902 a stable combination? Were all the problems fixed? What is the advantage of 2.3 over 2.1?

    Thanks for the info. It looks like 2.2 was a major update, but 2.3 has only minor changes, with maybe the exception of the voice calling feature.

    I still wonder if 2.3 is stable on devices like this:
