    I don't know about that particular unit, but you can see my personal experience with "bargain" generic tablets in my thread "which hammer is best..."

    As what i always said:"you can buy a decent tablet PC with android 2.3 and good processor with around $200!" why not to spend a little more and get something far more better?
    PS: it seems the tablet you mentioned also available in our site for £59 : Cheap 7 inch android 2.2 OS Tablet PC with VIA 8650 CUP and Dual Core 800Mhz - China Electronics Wholesale - Consumer Electronics Gadgets Dropship From China

    Gotta agree with the $200 assessment....pay a little more, get a hell of a lot more. There is even a local joint in my area that was selling the 7 inch Samsung galaxy tab for $250 for a short while. Do yourself a favor and save some more pennies and get a solid one you know won't light your house on fire.

    I ordered one of these two weeks ago from Minigadget in Farnborough Hants which is less than 20 miles from where I live. It arrived yesterday by special delivery after I had chased them two or three times. Got it out of the box and tried to set up email, a suitable word and powerpoint app and Evernote which I use all the time. The device was incompatible with Evernote, email did not work for a BT account and Office Suite, on this tablet did not recognise word documents from the external USB slot. All I could see was a series of symbols - don't know what the technical term might be - unicode perhaps!

    I know it's cheap and you get what you pay for but I expected something to work. A couple of hours ago the whole thing froze and all I can get is a perplexed looking android sliding up and down the screen.

    In short if you want to waste £60, a whole weekend and push your patience to the limit by all means go and buy one of these. If not AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. THEY ARE RUBBISH!!!!!
