Default List of 4:3 aspect ratio android tablets

The widescreen 16:9 and 16:10 formats used for the majority of Android tablets are, in my opinion, not the optimal solution for the tablet environment. It is either too wide or too narrow, especially with the inclusion of the navigation bar, and really only shines when watching widescreen video. As far as apps go, 4:3 is vastly superior aspect ratio for everything else (web browsing, email, etc).

I thought it might be nice to have a list of all the (worthwhile) 4:3 aspect ratio Android tablets available for those who feel the same way I do, since there doesn't seem to be one. I will start with a list of the ones I know about, and I hope you all will chime in with more.

Idea USA CT802.

As a new user I can't post links here. You;ll have to Google for it.

Similarly to the Eken A90 it has an Allwinner A10, 1G ram, 16G onboard storage and an SD slot, and is 9.7" and 1024x768. The manufacturer's site is wrong; it's not a Vivante GC800. The site also used to incorrectly list bluetooth. It does have GPS, which is not listed on the site. Actually, when I google up pictures of an Eken A90 mine looks exactly identical except for the logo and a few button labels--same buttons in the same places, same ports, same design with cameras in front and back and speaker on the back (wouldn't putting it on the front make more sense?).

The tablet's company is headquartered in the US and it's supposedly designed in the US by someone with a non-Chinese name, but the tablet is made in China and the manufacturer's web site has typical bad English of a normal Chinese web site. How someone managed to "design" a tablet identically to a tablet by another manufacturer, I don't know.

The tablet is an older model and seems to have been replaced by the CT920 which is also 1024x768.

The tablet comes pre-rooted. I don't know if the CT920 also comes rooted.

I'm glad to see other Android users recognize the 4:3 aspect ratio is superior for tablets. If I could get an Android iPad mini with a high res display, I'd be elated.
