    Once HoneyComb source code is released you will see hacked versions of it on hackable devices that are dual core.

    so you are saying that this is hackable?
    can anyone vouch for this device's quality?

    Had a play with it a few days ago when I went to pick up the dawa a8,
    Build quality is fine feels really solid,
    Can't vouch on battery life, it's a 3400 battery so 4-5hrs I guess,
    To take full advantage of the dual core you really need android 2.3 on it,
    I compared it with the dawa a8 and it had just the slightest edge in speed,
    With android 2.3 it will be much faster,
    There are plenty of reviews up on YouTube
