    BLESS you my dear chap! Long overdue, especially for those of us who are looking to buy. I know it can be really taxing on you, but if only there is one more line under each chipset heading like say:
    Effective: mm/dd/yyyy.; Price Range $ xxx - XXX; SELLERS - ABCD; EFGH: etc Perhaps this can be updated by the Sellers themselves to reduce your workload. Just imagine just this section would have saved me hundreds of hours to get these facts! Thank you and keep it up! Vijay

    The problem with getting prices is that it's largely affected by shipping costs.

    If you know exactly what you are looking for, you can look up prices on Ebay.

    Chinese users should look on http://taobao.com for reliable listings

    It's difficult to pin down pricing per tablet, especially on this page.

    But right now the two reference prices from the 2 most popular generic tablets on the market

    In USD, estimates only
    EKEN M001 - $80
    Apad iRobot - $120

    Then brand name:
    Augen Gentouch - $150
    Archos 7 Home Tablet - $200
    Huawei S7 - $400

    Hi xaueious!
    Thank you for great job!
    I have two questions. First: why you didn't mention nvidia tegra 1 and coming soon 2? And second, please explain your method of comparing performance.

    I don't know enough about Tegra 1 and 2 right now. They haven't made it into any products yet that's for sure.

    As for performance, some of them have the same application core types (ie: ARM1176). So it's a rough estimate based on clockspeeds (which I hope are at least close to actual figures). I do think I get pretty close.

    Fixed typo for VIA 8505
    Also, most seem to run at 350MHz

    But how you compare different type of processors, for example, how you recognized that TI OMAP 3530 more powerful than Telechips TCC8902 and ZT180?

    OK so in your opinion, which is the top model to buy right now. I'm looking for a powerful one that I can start developing on. I am a developer and the android app tutorials are looking really good to me! I've searched around but so far this is the only site providing any current insight. Which ones are ahead?

    Give it another month or so. Right now the market is not significant.

    But if you want to start developing, making apps for 800x480 is a pretty safe bet. I'm not sure what apps you have in mind, but you need to target a certain platform (more like price range). I can't tell if Android tablets will get popular yet. There's really not been enough good ones out there.

    Thanks for setting this up and getting it started.
    Q. What is the ideal and available tablet that would be suited best to start programming for?

    My thought is to focus on one device that provides the best platform for doing development for. I have Eclipse and the ADT up and running and have delivered code there.
    Now, I want to know next steps. Like building a ROM or whole-new release of the running OS on the device. As well as tablet specific development.
    Can you add some details for where you would suggest I get this information?

    Thanks in advance
