Hello, first i'd like to say that A8 is not the upgrade for aPad, it's actually an Apad with Cortex A8 Processor and 8" touch screen.:)
As for your following mentioned tablet pc with android 1.6, i would suggest you to think twice before the purchase! Basically, i'd suggest every android tablet fan not to get a android tablet pc under android 2.1 OS.
Actually, the A8 you metioned is a good choice! and here's the link for your refer: Android 2.2 OS 512 RAM with Freescale iMX515 Cortex A8 Processor Tablet PC M8003
Good Luck!:eek:
