Augen has followed up on its dirt cheap Gentouch78 tablet with a new sub-$200 offering. This time, however, it's a 10.2-inch netbook, and it too runs Android 2.1. Officially dubbed the "Genbook108," the little guy sports a 1024x600 pixel display, an 800MHz ARM11 processor, 256MB of system memory, and 2GB of internal storage. There's also built-in 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and an SD/MMC slot that can handle up to 32GB cards.


Preloaded is a web browser that supports YouTube, QuickOffice, an instant messenger, an email app, as well as software for media playback and viewing PDFs/pictures. Supported media formats include AVI, XVID, DIVX, MPEG-4, RMVB, MP3, WMA, WAV, WMV, ASF, and MOV. The Augen netbook weighs 1.8lbs with a 2100mAh battery and it ships with a leather carrying case for $190 (temporarily out of stock, though).
