    Depends, but probably no.

    Read up on our FAQ first.

    I have bought a 7'' pad from a chineese supplier, claiming that it is a 'Android 2.0'. But in the settings menu I read this:
    Firmware version: 1.6
    Kernel version: 2.6.29-00236-g48dbbb-dirty
    Build number: WMT2.1.2_105
    So, what is really my 'Android version'? The supplier points at the build number, claiming that this is the 'Android version'. What is the significance of 'build number', anything to do with the 'Android version', or unrelated?
