    as of right now i would go for the cheaper one as the tablets that are out now ( no matter how much they are ) wont compare to future tablets that come out even with in the next 6 months

    Yeah, I apologize for the false alarm. It was viewing that way for a few hours. Next time I'll take a screen shot. :)

    In the meantime please take a look at my first post and see if you can spot the UPDATE. If not, then I must be seeing things, and will try to cut back on my coffee consumption!

    The unit looks good to me. I pre-ordered. I cannot wait to get my hands on it!
    One thing I really like is that the price includes a wireless keyboard.;)

    OK, I don't mind if you guys yell...scream...call me dirty names. But didn't you think...just for a second...that the eLocity looks a little too good to be true? I dunno, but I get a funny feeling when I see it.

    OF COURSE I want it. It's sitting in my cart right now (admittedly, on preorder). But something tells me...no-name company...unbelievable specs...suspiciously decent price. I would love to wait and see what the first 100 users have to say about it.

    Im pretty sure this this is a 800x480 res screen. That holds the whole tablet back from having "unbelievable" specs. This screen resolution is officially supported by android, and thus it would make sense that it would be one of the first tablets out on the market.
    Nvidia has been holding back the bandwagon for a while with their delays.

    Good point. Amazon says:

    Which has me thinking: why put 1080p (or is that only through the HDMI out) on a hand-held screen? Really, what I'm asking is what is the limit of visual acuity such that smaller pixels don't matter? I've seen great tables that pit HD pixel densities versus viewing distances (for flat-screen TVs). I should probably get out the old calculator and extrapolate the acuity relations for small screens and close viewing distances!

    Looking at the pictures of the eLocity A7 I am wondering if the SD card would go in all the way or that it would stick out.. I presume this is just to show that it has an SD card slot and that it will not stick out!! :)

    i like the resolution of the elocity a7. I like the fact that it will work well with the android apps we all enjoy.
    On the other hand some of the units with a higher resolution are going to have issues.

    Samsung comments on Galaxy Tab App Display issues, admits to some apps not scaling | Android Community

    The question is how big of an HDTV can you use with an elocity a7 before it looks grainy?
    Maybe some of the community here that have similar units as the elocity a7 (like the HeroTab rk7 that has the same resolution and HDMI) can tell us if the image looks grainy when the tv is bigger than a 23 inch?

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    Interesting. I went to Amazon, did the word search on "elocity" and at the top was an box advert for pre-ordering and then 15 items listed available for elocity. But, none of them were Elocity A7. So I clicked on the little come-on link. It took me to the same result as yours.
    I am not in the know, but have heard through my sources. There are some rush to market quality issues on some of the newer (but not yet delivered) units. This may be an example.

    I do know the combination of the Autumn Holidays in China always throws some electronic vendors into fits. The problem is obvious. This is in part due to the shipping pipeline is not as big as it was before the global slowdown/recession. There are hundreds if not 1000s of container ships which have been moored empty just because the slowdown in the shipping import/export biz. If they do not get the items in big blocks of shipment. They cannot provide the sales and productions slows due to lagging sales....

    But it could just be the Chinese Holidays.

    I have a feeling there's no malice here, just automated inventory system silliness. Something very similar happenend in 2007 when I bought my Archos 605...drove the prospective buyers nuts!

    My first impression of the eLocity was that it was vaporware, but something tells me it's legit. I'd just like to see a more solid shipping timeline. And some trusty expert reviews!
