I finally decided to buy a tablet, and I thought this one looked pretty nice, and it is fairly cheap. I can't find any in depth reviews of it, only other brands version of the M970, and I am a newbie when it comes to android specs. do you guys think this is a decent tablet? Anyone used this brand before? I'm not trying to advertise for them (though they have some cool looking psp-like gaming tablets too lol), so I will remove the store link if it's inappropriate, I'm just wondering if I could get anything better for around the same price.

Resolution of 1024 x 768 is too small for a 9.7" screen. :mellow:

I was worried about that too, it says that it uses the same screen as the ipad2 (i don't know if that is a good or bad thing either, lol). I plan to use hdmi for my hd needs as much as possible (the 4:3 aspect ratio also worries me a little when watching videos).

I wouldn't recommend getting a tablet with an unknown name., even if it's cheap! Remember you get what you pay for! I also doubt it uses the same screen as an iPad. If you want an affordable and quality tablet. take a look at Google's Nexus tablet or the Kindle Fire from amazon.

I've already ordered it haha.. will definitely post a review. The small amount of research i've done on the manufacturer has turned up positive things. Right now i'm using an ipod touch 4G, and it is starting to show its age badly, this seems to be an upgrade, I've preferred android when I have tried it... the ipod will probably be a spotify machine.

I finally recieved the tablet today (shipped directly from china), I am really liking it. It blows the first android tablet I had away. The screen is really nice, the lower resolution isn't really noticable, it's as responsive as my ipod most of the time. Tthe only weak point i can think of so far is that it doesn't charge over usb, only the outlet cord which does kinda suck.

GTA Vice City runs flawlessly, I remember when that game was released on PC... I had a PC that could only run it on low settings, and it still chugged along lol. I can't wait for android San Andreas, I think it comes out in the next day or two. 

 

Edit: aaaaaaand it's broken. the power adapter broke, so I spliced on a new end, and now I have a charger that won't charge. It just keeps the battery percentage from going down... I'm so mad right now

edit 2: Ok, it charges about 25% per hour, which sucks, but at least It will help me get better at battery conservation lol
