    We have just tons of these in stock at present and, from the reaction that they have recieved so far, I think they will be hot sellers !

    Have tried one at home for over a week now and I can't fault it - amazing value for money.

    Prices are as follows :

    £ 79.00 - dropshipped to your client
    £ 71.00 - 10+
    £ 69.50 - 20+
    £ 65.00 - 50+

    No hidden extras, no fees, no delivery - prices are all inclusive.

    Are there any videos of this product in action? I just don't see how it can be anywhere near the quality of an iPad for just over £100.

    I would love to be proven wrong though :)

    You are right - I would doubt it would be anywhere near the quality of an iPad - why would you think it would?

    It's just like anything that is similar to other products.
    You are paying £100 or so for a product that retails at £500/600 whatever.

    The quality obviously isnt going to be 100% the same but Ian would not list the item if the quality was not appropriate.

    Well when you say 'can't afford an iPad - try this' I would expect it to be very similar in terms of quality, considering that you are comparing it to the original product.

    I would still like to see a video of it in action though if possible.

    I am a great believer in you get what you pay for and you pay for what you get - I would never make the suggestion that this is as good as an iPad. If I could afford an iPad, I am sure that I would not even consider one of these, however, for what this gives you, the value for money is outstanding - almost unbelievable in fact.

    Built in office apps, email, skype, msn, mp3 player, web browser, video player, WiFi......

    I may just consider making a video of this in action - if I can find the time and my old camcorder :cool:

    I've tried 3 of these from 3 different suppliers, each time they lived upto expectation. Pretty good alternative.

    Looks like a great little product...
    Ian can you tell me if the tablet has a USB port for external connections?
    What sort of retail pricing are you suggesting for this model?

    Cheers

    Id say its better then an iPad (Which is only rearly a big Touch!) as you dont have to use iTunes :) so that has to be a major plus point! :)

    It has a 30 pin connector with a cable supplied - USB at one end and 30 pin connector at the other for connecting to the device

    I would envisage this retailing at £129 - £149 depending on whether you supply a bigger TF card.

    My main use for it was for browsing the net and gathering email while "spending time" watching movies with the kids in the sitting room

    Yeah i use my netbook for that. But i do really want one. Can you use these like those umm what do you call them. The ebook readers, where the whole screen is the page of a book.

    I believe so but not entirely sure yet. Another member has my sample to try out.

    It has a PDF reader in-built
