    So, my mom just got me a Azpen A107 for Christmas and I'm loving it. So I was wondering, are there any cheap tablets that you love? If so post'em here.

    The emerson/polaroid and D2 Pads are remarkably stable (just don't exect flash and much for performance) compared with my phone, run Android 4.0 and are PRE-ROOTED

    With cheapies I recommend Dolphin Mini as a web browser if you like fast browsers

    I have an Azpen A701 and I dig it.. but I find it to be a bit laggy at times and since it comes rooted... do you know of any custom kernels or roms that would work on this device? I guess the stock kernel doesn't like it when you try to overclock the cpu. I had to hold the power down and get the damn thing to turn off..

    my second D2 Pad's digitizer got cracked and the device useless. for anyone getting a cheapie i do recommend a case, or light touching, which can be hard in the latter as some of them have lousy touch response or resistive screens.

    there is hardly any chance a custom ROM will exist, for the hardware as these are not favored by devs who put more time making ROMs to work with more popular brands like the Galaxy S or Nexus 4. both are far more capable. the cheapies have undersized RAM so i wouldn't think that running Jelly Bean AOKP would be pretty in 512MB RAM and a single core CPU. also, for custom ROMs to install you need a custom recovery such as TWRP or CWM, both requiring the build for your hardware, and without this you're sunk even if a ROM existed.

    if one truly wants to run something like CyanogenMod 10 on a single core, 512MB cheap tablet, i suppose it may be doable, if you like having the performance of a Pentium 2 running Windows XP Pro
