Tablet for Fring/Skype


Aug 9, 2010
Hey guys,

I've been looking for a tablet to fring or skype from. Just for some background, I use a Motion C5 tablet for school notes and my iphone for day-to-day. I am letting my girlfriend borrow my laptop while she's at school so I wanted to get a tablet with a front facing camera so that I can skype her, or so I can give it to her so she can fring my phone.

I was looking at this
Another thread states it's running Android 2.1

Then I found this
The only difference appears to be the color, and possibly the android version.

So what do you all think? Is this going to workout for me? Besides video chatting I would probably use it for minimal web browsing on the couch, etc.

Also, I was thinking about loading Jolicloud onto it, so I'm not sure if the android version really matters all that much...

I don't know of any tablets that work for Fring/Skype for voice chat. They work for text though.

Both devices have basically the same specs and are VIA WM8505 Gome Flytouch variants. Android 1.6.

You can't just load an OS on that thing.
