    i have a desktop and laptop that i use for home and a netbook that i will take with me traveling but am looking for something smaller and the 5" units caught my attention. just wondering if the $100 ebay machines are any good. im looking at a ramos T11AD or T11PRO or the NOVO5. any insight would be appreciated, i dont know alot about tablets other than i want an entry level machine without breaking the bank.

    Something along the lines of the Archos 5IT, an older tablet but very capable. I wonder if they ever updated past 1.6...

    Anyway, I think it is a little expensive for such kind of tablet PC, there are even 7" google android 2.2 tablet PC sold at the price of $78, including shipping on some online stores, for example, you can search from Pickegg.com.

    Well..I found a 7" tablet on PickEgg only needs about $78, which has the similar configs. So I'm gonna compare these two for your reference.

    Exactly same things:
    Android 2.2 operating system
    CPU: Via m8650 ARM11 800MHz
    Memory: DDR 256MB
    Storage Capacity: 2GB
    Support Flash 10.1
    WiFi, external 3G function

    Different things:
    The ebay one has 5 inch screen, pickegg one has 7 inch screen, but the resolution is the same.
    The ebay one doesn't have a webcam, the pickegg one has a 0.3MP webcam.

    That's how much I can tell from the details on both websites. And to answer your questions, yes, I think this 5 inch tablet should be good, but it seems you can get a better one at less cost. Btw here's the url of the pickegg tablet, incase you want to compare it yourself.:)

    the reason i recommend the coby they have a big android community working on Rom's, many users who are getting into android don't do their home work on the tablet that they intend to buy, why buy a tablet that has no dev helping with roms, I would strongly recommend not to buy that Ramos T11 tab..
