have the same specifications, Android version 2.1 Eclair & build description contains EM83 in both devices and they look identical! When I connect mine to Windows 7 PC and set the mode on tablet that I could reach its internal storage, in the device manager properties for USB device you can find name MID EM83 and EM83 is also mentioned in the Build description of both these tablets. I think MID EM83 is the clue to find the real manufacturer of this 8" tablet with Telechips 8902 CPU. I have searched google and read slatedroid.com & androidtablets.net but I couldn't find who is the real manufacturer or confirmed working Android 2.2 or 2.3 firmware or custom firmware ROM's. Maybe you, a person who reads this post, know? I thought it is obvious that ViewQuest Slate 8 & a-rival NAV-PA80 have been made by the same manufacturer and I tried to update ViewQuest with update provided by a-rival for NAV-PA80/NAV-PA83
to update my 8" View Quest Slate2 AND IT WORKED!!!. I believe this proves that they both are made by the same manufacturer or on the same platform designed for Telechips 8902 CPU. I am sure that there are other users who have 8" tablet with Telechips 890x CPU like ViewQuest Slate2 or a-rival PAD NAV-PA80 who do search for modified firmware ROM's to update their device from Android 2.1 to 2.2 or even 2.3 version. If you know were to find these custom ROM's - please let us know!
angry birds works, but is a bit jerky. i imagine if it had a 'low graphics' option it would actually work quite well. it also takes an age to load.
fruit slice works well, as does robo defense - even zoomed in it runs quickly and looks pretty good.
homerun battle 3d works well as well, even without (i think) a decent accelerometer.
xpectroid spectrum emulator works well.
got a ton of apk's to install to try so will update later

you don't appear to be able to move things to the sd card either, so the 256mb internal memory does fill up very, very quickly.
also, quite a few apps start upside down - literally. not the worst thing in the world, but sometimes it's a pain
if you want to add apps to the screens, you have to manually add them as shortcuts->applications then select which one.
angry birds rio works quite well
plants v zombies doesn't work
kindle works well enough. swipe to turn pages is a little laggy, but is fine.
youtube app doesn't work.
facebook and twitter work well - widgets work well on screen.
gmail app doesn't work, probably because market app also doesn't work
Latest version of the official facebook app didn't actually work and get FC'ing. Trying 1.7.1 and it appears to work ok .. so far
