I am very tempted but I am trying to save as much money as possible. Carless at the moment so I need a new one.... but still very tempted. It is crazy to see all these new deals on tablets recently. We rarely see a new mobile device for under $300.

Cheap tablets like this pop up all the time. The only thing it has going for it is that its running ICS

Did anyone buy one of these? I am tempted for my 11 year old. She loves Netflix (we only have one tv set and we don't let the kids use it much) and I saw a review that said the app works. She is currently using the non-activated cricket zte score I picked up for $30 a few weeks ago.

This tablet will be a lot better than the ZTE Score as far as hardware goes. The ZTE Score is only ARMv6/ARM11 which means no flash and limits gaming performance. Some apps like Temple Run only work decently on ARMv7.

The Cortex A8 isn't the latest generation, A9 is out, but at least the A8 can handle ARMv7 instructions. This tablet should handle games a lot better than the ZTE Score.

I wonder if you could get something like this to pull apps from the Android Market. It's right in the price-range of what I'd like to spend on a tablet right now for when I go in for chemo and am stuck in a bed for a while.

I wish I could pick this up online for purchase somewhere. For 99 bucks and already pre-rooted you can't go wrong.
