    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    It was painful but someone had to do it Here are some aggregate stats for August 27,2010 at 04:00 UTC. There is only a minimal attempt to interpret the results.

    I only did this out of curiousity to determine type and availability. There is likely some duplication of numeric results. An example might be EKen and VIA or similar replication.

    What is obvious in my opinion is the high numbers of the low end VIA chipset tablets being sold on the 'Bay. This is not a question of quality. It may be a question of availability.

    A search from my location showed that over 70% were from China and potentially just 8% from the US.

    Search Term (Include detail checked) .........Total
    Android Tablets =========================3996
    IPads and Tablets =======================1910
    PC Laptops and Notebooks =================905
    Computer accessories ====================281
    Other ================================108
    IPad and Tablet Accessories ================68
    Other sub-set items ======================43
    Electronics ============================339
    Gadgets ==============================109
    Ipod and MP3 ===========================58
    IPod Access ============================41
    GPS ==================================26
    AV accessories ==========================11

    Now for the Interesting Part, I did the same Android Tablet search but added a few more variables. These are not sorted in any order, just how in the order I did the search.
    Search A.T. with added Search term ..........RESULTS
    VIA ================================= 2112
    Rockchip ===============================418
    Telechips ==============================487
    ARM ==================================233
    APad =================================1369
    ePad ==================================632
    IRobot =================================642
    Wit* A81E ================================6
    Augen ===================================7
    Archos 5 android ==========================169
    Archos 7 android ===========================47
    PanDigital ================================34
    FlyTouch =================================0
    Ramos ===================================34
    Zenithink =================================52
    EKen ===================================262
    Streak ===================================42

    Read into the results what you want, but it shows at least from the search above which types are being sold currently. I may follow up later with pricing range for the same search criteria.

    Asus Transformer TF300, Huwaei Ideos S7-104, HSG X5A, (Past APAD IMX515, APAD RK2808, RK2818 RT7)
    Production volume of the VIA tablets is 3-4 times higher than RK2808 and TCC8902, so that's about right.

    These stats are pretty cool.

    Interesting to see the TCC8902 tablets matching with the RK2808, but the RK2808 has really slowed down lately.
