    It seems they also have 10.1″ (1024 x 600) capacitive (or resistive) screen, Android 2.2 tablet with NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU & 1GB RAM:

    Do they have this one on display? Could you ask them how much do they want for model with capacitive screen but without GPS and 3G? Also could you ask them how much it weighs and how thick is it?

    Great videos, I come here a few times a day just to see what you have been upto haha! I would also like to know what kind of performance these sub $200 tables have (quadrant etc).

    Keep the videos coming, I have watched all the new ones already :(

    Has it really just a 1800mAh battery ? Seems a little weak compared to the standard 3000mAh and I’am afraid it just works for 3-4h :(

    Could you compare it to the Moonse Tablet (http://armdevices.net/2011/04/09/moonse-amlogic-cortex-a9-irobot-tablet/), which seems to have the same specs, but with mate plastic and a camera (~ even thought it costs a little more, I don’t like it shiny) ^_^

    There’s no information on the Kinstone site for this tablet. Question is, who will pony up the quantity to bring these to the US…..and at $125 FOB China….means it’ll hit the US at LEAST at $200…which will be a little too pricey at this point to make a dent in the US.
