    Hey, yes, please confirm that it's a Rockchip tablet before your purchase, you don't want to be sorely disappointed. Don't get one with a blue LED, for starters.

    The one you suggest is cheaper than this one.

    CM003 Google Android OS China iPad

    However, dragonext's one is running android 1.6. I see in other forum that 1.5 cannot upgrade to 1.6. This is one of my concern too...

    Rockchip is fine if you can accept the limitations.

    SmartQ V5 would be a good choice for a smaller sized device if you could spend a little more.

    SmartV5 , OTG , WIFI , Android ,Ubuntu, HDMI SmartV5 , 1080P , OTG , WIFI , Android , WinCE ,Ubuntu, 2GB [SmartV5] - $172.00 : JTSHOP

    This is a nice device and a great firmware 2.1 is coming soon. (This is a test 2.1 out now.)

    SmartQ MID Unofficial Board • View topic - Android 2.1 FINAL coming soon

    If you can spend a little more, you can get the WITStech A81-e. Which as a very nice CPU and 3D card. You can find a lot of videos of it on youtube. (Android 2.2 test firmware is available now.)

    A81 E,TI OMAP3 Cortex , Android 2.1 , Wince ,GPS TI OMAP3 Cortex A8 , A81 7 , Wifi, Wince ,Bluetooth , GPS [WITS-A81E-GPS] - $200.00 : JTSHOP

    EDIT: I guess I forgot to say that the VIA boards are not worth it. You can find them on Android 1.7 and 1.6, but 1.5 on a Rockchip is a nicer experience. I've never owned one, but I've read a lot of reviews demonstrating < 2 hour battery life and very poor performance. Like click and the screen and wait for a reaction.

    Yeah the rockchip ones have a much better experience, definitely. I was using mine to listen to music and play games for about 4 hours last night, with it going to sleep every time I was away from it for more than a couple of minutes. It still has about 20% batter left. I wish my laptop could do that...

    I know this is off topic, but what games are good with only resistive touch screen? I'm enjoying settlers the most. Assassins creed was also fun, but I did not get too far to see if you need multi touch to finish.

    I've been playing solitaire and sudoku a bunch, some of the other ones aren't the greatest, but are playable :)
