    It's another cheap "no name" knockoff assembled by Eglobel, but not a bad price at $79 and free shipping. I bought it 'sted of the Kindle at the same price, but WITHOUT the blankety-blank spam. With a freebie ap called "Moon Reader" it works very well as a book reader.

    And except for only getting about a 2 hour run when playing a heavy graphics game like Angry Birds or browsing the WEB extensively, I have little or no complaint.
    There are a few "glitchy" quirks about this tablet. It does tend to drop the WIFI connection until you get the right combination from the router figured out. (Oddly enough, the generic WIFI at most Mickey D's seems to work just fine.) At my house apparently there is some interference on channel 6 that my android phone does not see, but the tablet does causing it to lose then regain the connection. Switching to channel 4 on the router seems to have cured it, but I'll report back on that when I've used it a couple of days. The Ethernet connection is rock steady.

    The USB/Ethernet adapter connector is cheesy and might be easily broken. (But I haven't yet!) On the plus side there are two USB ports on the adapter along with one Ethernet port.

    The built in speakers are not very loud or very hi-fi (Hey! What do you expect for $79 bucks?) but the audio quality is fair thru the 3.5mm Standard Headset jack.

    There is no built in 3G, however an external plug-in is available for those that might want it.

    I intend to add a micro DS 32 meg chip after I've played with it a while, but have not as yet. More after I do.

    The touch screen is not quite as sensitive as I would like it to be, but maybe there's an AP for that?

    All in all, a very inexpensive way to get into the tablet game.

    Nice review, sounds like you got your money's worth. I'm pretty sure, if you ever need any help with it, the place to go would be the WonderMedia Based section of the forum. Just click the link.

    Not endorsing or encouraging purchase. This tablet can be frustrating because of the lack of documentation. But here's the URL:

    Do you know if this tab stocks to the uk? Might have a look if so because I want another tab but don't want to spend to much.
