This is getting close to the cheapest price you can find a 7" capacitive ARM Cortex-A8 with Mali-400 graphics powered Ice Cream Sandwich WVGA tablet. I bought 2, because I want to test this more. Let me know in the comments if you may be interested to buy one of these (I may try to organize some group buy of this through my website if there is demand). Let me know in the comments what I should test about this tablet.
The MediaTek MT6575 is out of the gate. ARM Cortex-A9 invades the low cost Shenzhen Smartphones market. http://www.zopomobile.com opened their first store on the Huaqiangbei Shenzhen Smartphones market street, to sell their new ZP100 smartphone at 1099rmb (USD$174). It's got an awesome 4.3" qHD 960x540 LCD capacitive screen made by Sharp, a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera/camcorder made by Sony, the MT6575 makes it support Dual-sim WCDMA/3G/Data and GPRS/Voice at the same time. And it's got a removable 1650mAh battery, MicroSD slot and Micro-USB that does not double as an MHL output. Of course I bought one because I want to test the MT6575 processor. Let me know in the comments what you would like to see me test on this and other upcoming MT6575 Smartphones.
Here is a video filmed in one of the many small to medium sized Shenzhen factories. This one is able to output thousands of laptops and tablets per day. The Hongda factory manufactures for http://www.yooe.com.cn among others.
The new Boxchip A13 is designed to provide for even cheaper Ice Cream Sandwich tablets, now reaching the sub-$55 price point. By June, http://www.yooe.com.cn says they can sell this one in bulk below 300rmb which is below USD$47! At that price you get a 7" capacitive ICS awesome experience! WVGA at that price, I don't know how much more it costs them to make it a 7" 1024x600 screen. The AllWinner Boxchip A13 removes the HDMI output, otherwise most seems to be the same as the now very popular AllWinner Boxchip A10 based tablet platform! If you are interested to buy this tablet for sub-$55 (any quantity) let me know in the comments (maybe I can find a way to make it a grouped purchase through Hong Kong on my website).

Here is my first 2012 video at the Shenzhen Smartphones Market! This market is so awesome, huge, fantastic, compressed, action packed, full of devices, walking around the Shenzhen Smartphones market is hugely impressive. Check back in the days to come as I'll post videos of the coolest devices that I can find here.
At the Smartphones market in Shenzhen China, you can find these experts who can open up any broken phone, find out what is broken and fix them. They have screws, soldering irons, volt measuring equipment, cutters, and other equipment to analyse, find the defects and fix the devices.
