    READ THE TITLE - this is not for questions. Search for a thread and only post if there is not one available.

    TIP - Do not buy a tablet that has no support.
    TIP - DO not buy a tablet without 2.2 AND confirmed Flash 10.1 AND confirmed Google Market. If the supplier does not know do not buy from them.

    Tablets now around with capacitive screens but some are still not 2.2 - do not buy them.

    Make a checklist for what you NEED and what you WANT
    e.g.
    Size
    Performance
    Price
    Camera (front and or rear)
    Phone capability
    GPS
    Wifi
    OS - use 2.2 as a minimum
    Don't forget to check the ports -
    Micro USB for using as an external drive on your PC
    Full USB to attach Sticks or external drives (watch power supply)
    Battery life
    The list goes on....

    Excellent post. No individual should buy from any of those sites offering bargain basement MIDS/tablets. Nothing posted about them on the selling sites is accurate or true. If you can travel to China and go to the manufacturer and sign an agreement for them to make to your specs for you to sell, then do so. BUT DON'T BUY THESE BRICKDROIDS.

    Most of the new tablets are running HONEYCOMBE... 3.0 or 3.1.
    I would think that would be one of the most important considerations when buying a tablet. Especially with 10.1" tablets. I have an ACER Iconia a500 with 32GB. And for all those wondering when they will be upgraded to version 3.1 - its coming this month.
