$150 tablet touch screen at K-Mart. Be funny if it's better than the iPad!
[link to www.techspot.com]

"Looking for an inexpensive and readily-available Android tablet? Augen has you covered. The little-known manufacturer is getting ready to launch the GenTouch Android tablet and it's going to be sold exclusively at Kmart for a mere $149. Specs aren't half bad for the price, either -- You'll get a 7-inch 800x480 TFT LCD screen, 800Mhz CPU, 256MB RAM, 2GB storage, Wi-Fi connectivity, SD/MMC slot (up to 16GB cards supported) and Android 2.1."

I'll be interested to see how a 150$ tablet from K-Mart really stands up.

Based on what I've read so far, I'm betting it'll be unimpressive at best.

Looks great. If the screen is capacitive as opposed to resistive, this could be a serious budget contender to the iPad. If they sold these in the UK, I would get one.

Admittedly, I'd probably buy one of these for the kids... At the price, it's definately hard to beat.

No way in hell even close to iPad. It probably cost $20 to make.

Yeah, if it is capacitative (sp?) it would be awesome. I really, really like my Droid that I've had for about 2 months. Every day I discover something new, and it is great for me to keep on top of all my crazy moving parts. I think of it as my REALLY portable computer. I'd be willing to take a shot on a $150 tablet...

For that price, if it's half as good as the iPad then you have a good deal.

No K-Mart here in the Netherlands but i am sure i will be able to buy it somewhere.

I'll be waiting - never buy the first edition of anything...I like to wait for the kinks and bugs and the lower price :o)

And hey - this thing does have a USB port! Isn't that something the uberexpensive iPad forgot about? o.O

Re: $150 tablet touch screen at K-Mart. Be funny if it's better than the iPad!
Depends upon how good it is for surfing and mail.

I bought a netbook just for mail and a little surfing when traveling and it does OK but not great. All I need is something so I can easily check my mail and send mail and do the occaisional web search, and at this price this may fit the bill IF it is lighter than my netbook (2.3 pounds + power supply)

I have no desire to spend $500 for something that will eventually get trashed as I travel so Apple's iPad while nice just isn't going to cut it for me.

One item that would be nice would be UBS ports and an ability to plug in a data modem such as Verizon or Sprint so I wasn't limited to just "hot spots".

I bought the asus netbook for school, general surfing, and email. I am having a problem witht email but everything else is great. I was even able to load Microsoft Office 2007. Yeah, its not touch screen but it does what I want it to do.
Let it be known, that the so called elitist’s liberties are not the grants of princes or parliaments. That many of our rights are inherent and essential. Agreed on as maxims and established as preliminaries even before government existed. We have a right to them, derived from our maker. Our forefathers have earned liberty at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasures, and their blood. Liberty is not built on the doctrine that a few NOBLES have the right to inherit the earth. It stands on this principal that the meanest and the lowest of people are by the unalterable, indefeasible laws of god and nature as well entitled to the benefit of the air to breath, light to see, food to eat, or clothes to wear as the nobles, or even a king. That is liberty, and liberty will reign in America!

But can you make a friggin phone call on it?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 992893



You can make free phone calls from any PC or pc like device with a mic. and speakers/headphones.
Because of the rise in popularity of data plans many manufacturer have been forced by service providers to put limmitations in there operating systems to stop certain forms of data calls or tethers. Blackberry got fed up and made there phones available to other providers. The andriod operating system had tethering for intenet network sharing removed in v.1.6 at the demand of Tmobile. The aledgadly open market of "andriod market" no longer will alow any tethering apps on the market that provide network sharing features thanks to verizon they cant even be downloaded and istalled in a none rooted device.If you root an andriod device there are endless apps one could make and download. Googles andriod is the only os that I know of that actually suggests owners to root aka "jail break" their devices so they can meet up with the origanal purpose. Anyone who bought an earlier model will see how much the os changed after verizon made a contract with them. Verizon ruins everything always. redface


[link to lifehacker.com]
If your not that computer savy heres a link with some easy ways to get your andriod tablet calling via wifi. The link is more driven to rooted mobile devices. Some more apps will definetally be available after the tablet release.

PREDICTION
Soon after that the verizon dsl and fios network with filter common voip ports and block andriod access with out certificates from their navigator browser.
