It's nothing special.
1GHz Cortex A8 CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage, Android 4.0 and a capacitive touchscreen.
The retail price in Shenzhen is about $40 bucks for a 7 inch tablet of those specs. Probably much less wholesale, in lots of a thousand.
The biggest problem with the device is its screen -- both its touch layer and stunningly poor viewing angles. Often our swipes were misinterpreted as taps, which sent apps and links launching with little warning. In landscape mode held directly in front of you the 800 x 480 screen isn't much to look at. Tilt it up or down just the slightest bit however and the screen starts to look like a photo negative.
I'm quite sure all cheapo tablets do that. It's no IPS screen.
